So is Proace a good van, then? Well, it certainly proved itself the pick of the medium duty van market, winning both its category and the overall LCV of the Year title in the 2016 What Van? awards.
Speaking for the award judges, James Dallas, What Van? Editor, said: “This outstanding, innovative van represents a leap forward compared to its predecessor and deserves to establish Toyota as a major player in the crucial medium van sector.”
Mark Roden, Toyota GB Sales Director, said: “This award is much valued and recognises the real advances we have made in developing a van that delivers on hard-wearing, lasting quality, innovation and practicality. We’ve also made sure that Proace provides all the equipment today’s customers demand, in terms of safety, comfort and convenience in a range that reaches every part of the sector.”
Introduced in the summer of 2016, Proace provides a comprehensive range that embraces three wheelbases, payloads up to 1.4 tonnes and commercial load volume up to 6.6m3.
