The 2022 Toyota Proace City compact van offers best-in-class load-carrying capabilities and high equipment specifications, perfect for customers who need their business transport to double as a mobile office.

Proace City sits alongside its medium duty Proace, Hilux pick-up and Land Cruiser Commercial siblings to give Toyota 80% coverage of the UK’s light commercial vehicle market. This range is overseen by Toyota Professional, our programme of services for new and established LCV customers.

UK line-up and features

Five versions of the Proace City are available, with panel vans in short (2,785mm) and long (2,975mm) wheelbase body styles. All can carry two standard European pallets (1,200 x 800mm) in the easy-access load area, which can be accessed via sliding side doors and twin side-hinged rear doors that open to 180 degrees.

The load area volume is 3.3 cubic metres for the short body version and 3.9 cubic metres for the long, while the payload is up to one tonne. Further space is available with the clever Smart Cargo feature (standard on Icon and Design and optional on Active grade), which creates an extra 0.4 cubic metres of space and increases the maximum load length by 1.3 metres by folding down the nearside front passenger seat. However, if the configurable interior space is still not big enough to take everything that is needed, Proace City has a class-leading 1.5-tonne towing capacity.

Two variations of 1.5-litre turbo diesel powertrain will be available – 100bhp and 130bhp – as the entry-level 75bhp engine has now been deleted. Both are equipped with stop-start technology to support fuel economy and lower emissions. Maintenance should be carried out every two years or 25,000 miles, while extra reassurance is provided by Toyota’s comprehensive warranty (see last subheading). Residual values are strong and in line with those achieved by the larger Proace sibling.

2022 Toyota Proace City: Active grade

Although sitting at the entry point of the range, Active grade still includes the following standard features:

  • Air conditioning
  • Automatic headlights
  • Heated and power-adjustable door mirrors
  • One-touch power windows
  • Twin sliding side doors and 180-degree opening rear doors
  • DAB radio with USB port and Bluetooth
  • Full-size spare wheel
  • Rubber floor covering in cargo area and full metal bulkhead

Options for Active grade models include the Smart Cargo system in a package that also includes an electronic parking brake, driver’s seat lumbar support, and slide/recline adjustment of the passenger two-seat bench. A tow bar is also available.

2022 Toyota Proace City: Icon grade

As the middle grade, Icon includes the following additional standard features:

  • Multimedia system with eight-inch touchscreen
  • Smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
  • Smart Cargo system
  • Three front seats
  • Automatic windscreen wipers
  • Electronic parking brake
  • Reversing camera and front and rear parking sensors
  • Cruise control with speed limiter
  • Front fog lights and cornering lights

Options for Icon grade models include a Toyota Safety Sense package, which includes a Pre-Collision System, Road Sign Assist, Lane Departure Alert and a ‘coffee cup’ alert that recommends the driver to take a break if they have spent a long time at the wheel. A 3.5-inch colour multi-information display, immobiliser and alarm, and tow bar can also be specified.

2022 Toyota Proace City: Design grade

Introduced for the 2022 Proace City range is a new top-of-the-range Design grade. As the most generously appointed model, it includes the following additional features:

  • 16-inch alloy wheels
  • Body-colour bumpers
  • Satellite navigation
  • Alarm system
  • Toyota Safety Sense features: Pre-Collision System, Lane Departure Alert, Road Sign Assist and ‘coffee cup’ driver fatigue alert

Initially, the Design version is available with the 100bhp 1.5-litre turbo diesel engine in standard wheelbase form. However, in spring 2022, the choice will be extended with a new 130bhp version of the 1.5-litre engine exclusively paired with automatic transmission. This version is available to order now with deliveries expected from March 2022.

Range and pricing

GRADE  POWERTRAIN  BODY LENGTH  CV ON-THE-ROAD PRICE 
Active  1.5-litre 100bhp  Short  £19,718

2022 Toyota Proace City: warranty

All new Proace City models are sold with a three-year/60,000-mile manufacturer’s warranty. With the Toyota Relax programme, this is extended by 12 months or 10,000 miles annually, after the vehicle is serviced at an authorised Toyota centre. Subject to terms and conditions, this warranty can be extended up to 10 years or 100,000 miles at no extra cost. New Toyota Professional models are also sold with five years’ roadside assistance cover, giving further customer peace of mind.

The 2022 Toyota Proace City is available now.

Orchard business blossoms with Hilux help

It’s late Sunday afternoon on one of the warmest spring days of the year. The ground looks dry and is already beginning to crack. Songbirds and bees compete for attention as the low sun gently warms thousands of blossoming apple trees on a south-facing hillside in the heart of Kent.

But with unseasonably low temperatures in the overnight weather forecast, the race is on to protect a 75-acre orchard from frost damage. One way to do this is to make sure the grass between each row of trees is kept short. This helps to increase airflow and reduces the chance of cold air settling. 

Claire Seymour, 43, gently edges her Toyota Hilux between a row of trees at Tubslake Farm, near Hawkhurst in Kent. Her pick-up’s white paintwork and red signwriting match the flowering pink and white Braeburn apple blossom. Her husband, Steve Bowles, also 43, then sets about unloading a large green Fendt 209V tractor from an enormous six-wheeled flat-bed trailer behind the Toyota. He starts up the brand new tractor and then begins to set up and test the Fisher variable-width mower before handing it over to its new owner for an evening of urgent grass cutting.

Claire is managing director of NP Seymour Ltd, an engineering and agricultural machinery dealer set up by her family in 1974. Based in nearby Cranbrook, the company supplies and makes equipment for orchards, vineyards and fruit growers across the UK. 

“We’ve had other pick-ups in the past but I was impressed with the comfort of the Hilux. We bought it from Beadles Toyota, Medway, in the spring of 2019.

“It’s the Invincible model and is fitted with off-road tyres and a Truckman top on the back. We use it all the time for customer deliveries all over the UK, visiting growers and going to shows. The 3.5-tonne towing capacity is really important to us as lots of our kit is very heavy,” explained Claire.

Surrounded by apple blossom, NP Seymour’s Toyota Hilux delivers a tractor to an orchard at Tubslake Farm, Hawkhurst, Kent.

“We’ve been really busy since we’ve owned it. Covid didn’t really slow us down at all. We just had a few difficulties with staff numbers. But the demand for our machinery hasn’t stopped.

“The Hilux has already done 50,000 miles, and absolutely nothing has gone wrong with it. We’ll definitely buy another Toyota when it’s time to replace this one,” she said, just before hurrying off, leaving the orchard in a cloud of dust to go and enjoy the rest of her Sunday evening with Steve.
