88. TOYOTA HILUX
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.
