Toyota’s latest addition to its commercial range, the Proace City, has arrived at Tony Burke Motors.
Practical, agile and flexible, with class-leading features, the Proace City prices start from €15,038 (ex VAT ).
To celebrate its launch, there is a range of offers, Toyota says it is offering competitive leasing offers available with Toyota Financial Services; 3.9 per cent APR hire purchase offers, or a scrappage offer of €3,000.
Toyota says its Proace City is a competitive and appealing addition to the Light Duty Van (LDV ) segment, and expands Toyota’s product coverage in the LCV market.
Proace City comes with two wheelbase lengths. The short wheelbase is 4.4m long with a cargo volume of up to 3.30 m3, a standard cargo length of 1.80m, and two individual front seats. For those who need to carry more personnel and cargo, the Smart Cargo feature allows for a three-seat bench with a folding outer passenger seat and a bulkhead hatch which provides an extra 0.4m3 load space, increasing the maximum load length by 1.30m to 3.10m. The centre passenger seatback can also be rotated to create a handy desk space, with additional under-seat storage.
The long wheelbase option is 4.7m in length, and its standard cargo length is 2.20m, and cargo volume is 3.90m3. Both cargo length and volume increase to 3.40m and 4.30m3 respectively with the Smart Cargo feature.
Toyota says for both short and long wheelbase variants, tight spaces and city streets pose no problem as the asymmetric rear doors make loading a breeze.
The Proace City has a payload capacity of up to one tonne ,and both long and short wheelbases can accommodate up to two Euro pallets.
Safety and functionality
Toyota says Proace City benefits from equipment specifications that promote a comfortable driving environment and improved practicality, while also boasting multimedia and connectivity to ensure customers have everything needed to run a business. It can also be equipped with an eight-inch touchscreen to access audio and smartphone functions, Apple CarPlay (including Siri assistant ) and Android Auto (including Google assistant ), plus Bluetooth, and USB/Aux-in connections.
Storage points are featured throughout the cabin (according to grade ), ranging from coin and cup holders and open stowage areas, to an under-seat drawer and spaces designed into the doors and floor.
Proace City is available with a diesel powertrain offering a power spread from 75 to 100hp, and a five-speed manual transmission.
Toyota says the model range amply covers business and fleet customer requirements in terms of capability, versatility, performance and efficiency.
Toyota Professional offers a comprehensive range of services to keep customers on the road, including Toyota roadside assistance, extended opening hours at select dealerships; “While you wait” service subject to availability; priority service booking within 48 hours; CVRT Test arrangement.
Where possible, Toyota says it will provide a replacement van to ensure that motorists can keep working when their van is in for a service.
Customers can contact Tony Burke Motors to organise a test drive, which will be unaccompanied test drives from its Toyota dealership in Ballybrit. It also offers test drives to be undertaken at the customer’s home should they prefer, where possible.
Commenting on the arrival, chief executive of Toyota Ireland Steve Tormey says the new Proace City extends Toyota's commercial offering into the LDV segment, offering improved practicality and best-in-class features.
"With Proace City we are now catering to a much broader commercial market than we’ve served before and we look forward to welcoming new business customers into the Toyota family.
"We understand for our customers a van is not just a van, and our dedicated range of Toyota Professional services offers our customers peace of mind and reassures them that they can depend on dealers and our range of highest quality vehicles. We believe that they will be impressed with the new Proace City."
