Comments from owners of Toyota Hilux

Before my Toyota HiLux  I had a Nissan Navara D22. The only commonality between them is that both pickup …. in favor of Toyota.

Here, however, talk about the road (only) rather than endurance! Naturally, I can not compare common front axle Nissan (Patrol) and independent of the Toyota Hilux. There is no basis for comparison!

Nissan Navara or Toyota Hilux?

Overall I think pretty much alike the two cars. I recommend you look at the Mitsubishi L200 and especially if the development is important for you because it has a new engine that makes it more powerful and more dynamic and Nissan and Toyota, but still has a Japanese car.

Toyota HiLuxGenerally you get as much as you pay. Toyota and especially Hayluks is spartan car ie less features and a clear vision for the same money. Definitely Japanese diesel is more robust and reliable by the French also Toyota HiLux is better than off-road in Navarre, I feel. My recommendation is hard for Toyota HiLux.

Generally Hayluks created to look like a truck, carry as truck and rides like a truck. But this is a car with tradition. Interestingly, that “Talibans” in Afghanistan with such machines. Overall, Nissan Navara can not boast who knows what. For the best choice is Toyota HiLux. It is important to pay attention and maintenance of vehicles.
