The launch of the new Hino 300-Series medium truck range is undoubtedly one of the highlights of 2012 in terms of new model truck launches in South Africa as it is the most popular medium truck in South Africa bar none.
The Hino 300 is brother to the Toyota Dyna that was introduced locally in 1965. Combined sales for this range of product has already exceed 85 000 units and it has been the top seller in the medium truck market for the past 27 years.

The Toyota Sienna is already well known as a transportation solution for moving people and cargo comfortably and efficiently.

It will look and drive more like a sedan, while maintaining its ability to easily accommodate cargo and handle big loads.
