Auto Express - - Winter Driving Special -

OVER its 50-year life the Hilux has earned a rep­u­ta­tion for be­ing al­most in­de­struc­tible. To this, the lat­est model adds re­fine­ment and equipment pre­vi­ously un­heard of in a Toy­ota pick-up, along with the choice of sin­gle-cab, ex­tended-cab and dou­ble-cab bodystyles.

All are sur­pris­ingly good to drive (pro­vided you stick with the man­ual gear­box rather than the au­to­matic) and have a use­fully wide load bay. Price range: £23,595-£36,785 Our pick: 2.4 D-4D In­vin­ci­ble Dou­ble Cab (£31,270) En­gine: 2.4-litre, 4cyl diesel, 148bhp Trans­mis­sion: 6-spd man­ual, se­lectable 4x4 Top speed: 106mph Econ­omy: 40.4mpg CO2: 185g/km
