Alongside its larger sister van, the Proace, the Proace City will sit under the manufacturer’s new sub-brand, Toyota Professional.

Toyota boasts practicality, agility and flexibility as the Proace City’s key strengths. A choice of two or three front seats and a three-seater rear bench seat on crew cab models come as standard.

Innovative features like the Smart Cargo system can increase load capacity by 0.4m³ whilst the opening roof hatch can accommodate longer loads.

With a generous capacity of up to 3.7m³ on short versions and up to 4.3m³ on long, Proace City can also accept lengths of up to 3.4m. The crew cab model comes with fold-flat rear seats and a sliding bulkhead, to create more space as needed.

Asymmetric rear doors also facilitate loading, while the three body styles and two wheelbase lengths add to its versatility.

The Proace City can carry up to 1-tonne loads with a Smart Load Indicator handily warning drivers when they’re reaching their load limit.

With this latest release, Toyota promises best-in-class active safety, including a pre-collision system, lane departure alert, adaptive cruise control, automatic high beam and road sign assist all as standard.

Toyota is pegged to add a Proace Electric battery-electric variant and Proace City Electric to its portfolio in the next couple of years, suggesting that the manufacturer is one to watch.
