Toyota Hilux interior makes the Canning Stock Route a breeze

THE Hilux might be considered tough, but it’s passenger-car-plush on the inside, especially in this top-spec SR5.

Standard features include user-friendly touchscreen with sat-nav, cruise control, two 12-volt accessory sockets, a 220-volt connector, and power operation for the windows, mirrors and door locks.

The front seats offer greater comfort and support, while the thinner seat frames add 10mm of knee space for rear-seat double- and extra-cab occupants. These SR5 seats even have leather accents – luxury in a place like the Canning. Storage-wise there are more than a dozen different compartments to stow gear.

Comprehensive safety features include seven airbags across the range.
