    Rebadged Citroen/Peugeot
    Think they was released in 2014 and same engines 1.6-2.0 hdi
    Knowing Toyota though it will have been tweaked and better warranty
    To be honest don't see many about yet

    I have a Peugeot expert and find it weird how Toyota, fiat and Citroen can all have vans with exactly the same shape as my van

    When I close the door on my caddy, it sounds just like a Golf.

    It's because apparently there's not enough money in the van market to design and manufacture
    It's funny how a badge on the front though can alter the value and resale value even when there the same

    Had a look at the new vw transporter T6 on Sunday. Really nice. The new euro engine is out in sep/oct. I really fancy the highline model with all the toys and bodykit.
    My mate has an older version with 20" alloys and it looks stunning

    Toyota hiace was a real Toyota sadly it's emissions were too high for European market. So Toyota were in a place to offer zero for clients that wanted a van. So they just do face mask for the van that past the regulations. All those vans that look similar really are the same car. Some interior and face mask difference exist.
