Win a Toyota Hilux Double Cab worth R470 000

Date:15 August 2014

#Where2next? Darling of the Dakar, polar conqueror and the poster child for indestructability – where to next for this motoring legend? How about your very own driveway? A brand spanking new Toyota Hilux 3.0 D-4D 4×4 Raider Double Cab (with selected body kit and cabin accessories) valued at over R470 000 is up for grabs in the #Where2Next? competition.

The Hilux is a South African best-seller and is renowned for its quality and durability, not to mention exceptional off-road capability. Its stonking 3,0-litre turbodiesel engine churns out 120 kW at 3 400 r/min and 343 N.m of torque at just 1 400 r/min. Fuel efficiency, however, is not compromised – the 3,0 D-4D returns a laudable 8,6 L/100 km.

The range-topping Hilux Double Cab Raider comes with a full house of specifications, including:
* Remote central locking
* Full-colour infotainment system with Bluetooth and reverse monitor
* Multifunction steering
* Auto lights
* Electronic climate control

The Raider pack boasts a rear styling bar and tonneau cover on top of the standard 17-inch alloys and stainless-steel side steps. And, bear in mind that the prize vehicle will come with extra aesthetic enhancements! Watch this space for details.

Monthly lucky draw: Win a 3-in-1 Hilux bag comprising a backpack, coolbox and a seat cushion plus a Hilux cap with flashlight, altogether worth R450.
