The Hilux Revo Rocco is a mid-life update to the popular Toyota Hilux Revo in Thailand. Toyota has focused on making the car visually appealing and better looking in the pick-up segment.
What has changed in the facelift?
Toyota has tried to fundamentally alter the design thinking used in the pick-up segment so it can better compete with the rest of the market.
The most glaring difference is the snout in the front. This helps immediately differentiate the car from its pre-facelift version. It also provides an aggressive aspect to the look of the car, which is consistent with the overall high-powered theme of the Hilux Revo.
Variants of the Hilux Revo Rocco
The Hilux Revo Rocco comes in a total of two main variants – the double-cab and the smart-cab. Each of these two is further available in the FWD and AWD categories. The AWD version is equipped with a 2.8L engine, while the FWD is equipped with a 2.4L engine. All in all, four different variants of the car are available.
Interior, exterior and safety features
Given the facelift snout, the car makes an impressive and aggressive first impression. The other aspects of the exterior are not very different from the previous versions of the car.
The bi-beam headlight not only provides functionality but also helps at adding to the fierce look of the car. LED light guiding taillights are also at the back. All versions come equipped with an automatic light adjustable system.
The interior of the car boasts a black colored theme, which is again consistent with the overall character of the car – fierce and aggressive. The steering wheel comes with a tilt and telescopic adjustability option, while a sun visor is provided with a name card holder for the driving seat.
The seats have a mix of leather and synthetic leather used, which allow for a premium experience. In all the variants, a power seat adjustment system is made available for the driving seat.
As far as safety features are concerned, Toyota always does a good job in that respect. The following safety features are present in the car:
- Brake Assist (BA)
- Vehicle Stability Control (VSC)
- Traction Control (TRC)
- Trailer Sway Control (TSC)
- SRS Airbag
- Hill-start Assist Control (HAC)
Price of the car
The price of the car varies with different variants, however, the car has a list price of between 950,000 to 1,200,000 Thai Baht in Thailand.
Toyota Indus launched the latest version of the Revo in 2017. It remains to be seen whether the company has plans of introducing this car in Pakistan, especially since the economy is slowing down.
