Toyota has unveiled the 2020 Quantum van and minibus (taxi), and the new model brings with it a new engine, transmission, updated styling, and a new trim level.
Toyota notes that a shift to a semi-bonneted design has enabled the development team to implement significant changes with a stiffer frame, stronger straight-line performance, greater stability and manoeuvrability, and more pliant suspensions.
The sixth-generation Quantum range will be offered with a solitary engine on the domestic front – a 2.8-litre four-cylinder turbocharged diesel. This will be combined with a 6-speed manual transmission to promote excellent tractability and fuel efficiency.
Excellent cargo capacity – a hallmark of every Quantum – has been maintained at a maximum of 6.2 (LWB) and 9.3 cubic metres (SLWB) – due to longer wheelbases and clever packaging that increases internal width by 215mm, and height by 5mm without altering overall exterior width. Pricing and exact availability are unannounced.
