Sagar Parikh, I'm the international news editor at IndianAutosBlog.com. I love everything that has a steering wheel!

The Toyota Hiace will continue in its fifth generation for at least a year. According to a report from sankoh-jp.com, Toyota will give the current Hiace an upgrade in Japan this December.

No concrete details about the new Toyota Hiace are available yet. Rumours are rife of safety equipment and engine improvements as a part of the upgrade. The Toyota Hiace is currently offered with 1TR-FE 2.0L petrol, 2TR-FE 2.7L petrol, 2KD-FTV 2.5-litre diesel, 1KD-FTV 3.0L diesel and 5L-E 3.0L diesel engines.

Safety features are limited to basic equipment such as dual-front airbags, ABS, BA, VSC, ESS and HAC. It’s unknown if the safety equipment upgrade to the van will bring the Toyota Safety Sense suite of advanced active safety features. Automatic high-beam, lane departure with steering assist, full-speed range dynamic radar cruise control and pre-collision system with pedestrian detection are the highlights of the TSS bundle.
