Toyota South Africa Motors (TSAM) has released Heritage Editions of its popular Corolla, Hilux and Fortuner models. These locally produced vehicles have been created to commemorate TSAM’s 50 years in South Africa.

The Corolla Heritage model comes equipped with either a 74 kW 1,3-litre or a 90 kW 1,6-litre engine. Standard features include the entire Advanced Toyota specification list, which includes an audio system with USB, Bluetooth and iPod connectivity, electric windows and central locking. Unique to this model are leather upholstery, two-tone treatment on the dashboard and “Heritage Edition” decals on the vehicle and embroided carpets.

The Fortuner in Heritage Edition guise is available with the choice of Toyota’s 3,0 D4D with 120 kW and 343 N.m, or the 4,0-litre V6 with 175 kW and 376 N.m. It is available in a raised body as well as a four-wheel-drive version. Nice-to-haves include a stainless-steel nudge bar with matching side steps, a tow bar, specific Heritage Edition 17-inch alloy wheels, Heritage badging and an embroidered carpet set.

Recently updated, the Hilux Heritage Edition comes in Raider double-cab guise. Powering this vehicle is either a 118 kW 2,7-litre VVTi or the same 3,0 D-4D as in the Fortuner. These engines can be mated to a manual or automatic transmission. Setting this model apart is its stainless-steel nudge bar and matching side steps, a tow bar, 17-inch alloys, leather seats with matching leather door panels, an embroidered carpet set and a reverse parking camera.
