Toyota has announced the pricing and specification of its Granvia luxed up people mover which will be offered in two grades in six or eight seats configuration.
The Hiace-based Granvia range will kick off at $62,990 before on-road costs when it goes on sale in Australia from mid-October.
Powered by a 130kW 2.8-litre turbo diesel also borrowed from Toyota’s popular light commercial van, the two-tier line-up is made up of the base Granvia, as well as the range-topping Granvia VX.
The $62,990 starting price gets you six seat Granvia, while the larger eight seater adds $2,000 more at $64,990.
It costs another $10,000 to step up to the Granvia VX at $74,990 for both the six and eight seat variants.
The standard six-seat layout comes with four individual captain’s chairs in the second and third row, while the optional eight-seat configuration adds a two-person bench seat behind the third row, with a 40/60 split backrest.
All models get a sliding rear door on both sides as standard to enable access on kerb side and roadside.
They are also generously equipped with Toyota’s latest range of safety and driver assistance systems, including anti-collision warning system, autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection, active cruise control, auto high beam, front and rear parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning with lane keep assist, reversing camera and nine airbags.
Inside, occupants enjoy modern convenience like multi-zone climate control, key entry and start and Toyota’s fully connected, latest generation 12-speakers multimedia system with four USB ports, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The range-topping VX adds quilted leather appointed seats, power-operated sliding doors and power adjustable backrests and ottoman leg-rests for the four rear captain’s chairs. However, those opting for the eight-seat configuration will loose power adjustments to the third row.
