Mzansi’s most-loved people mover has been pimped in response to the prevailing Covid-19 operating conditions. In support of the local taxi industry and ensuring the safety of both drivers and commuters, Toyota South Africa Motors has introduced an upgraded driver guard to the Ses’fikile commuter.

This enhanced driver guard provides additional protection for the driver against possible coronavirus transmission.

All Hiace Ses’fikile models produced from October last year onwards, are fitted standard with the Covid-19 driver guard.

The Quantum range has also been kitted out with added comfort and convenience features along with exterior upgrades on selected models.

The GL bus inherits 16-inch alloy wheels shod with 235/65-R16 tyres (replacing the previously-employed steel versions), while also standardising the wheel size between 11 and 14-seater models.

A new upgraded rear-view mirror incorporates an auto-dimming function (electro chromatic), as well as reverse camera display. The reverse camera provides drivers with a clear view behind the vehicle.

The panel van and crew cab derivatives also benefit from the auto-dimming rear-view mirror and reverse camera upgrade.
