New-look Quantum means business
Toyota has given its popular Quantum range a new look, changing the 2014 Quantum’s front and rear. It also sports new interiors and an all-new cab variant.
According to Toyota, the Quantum’s visage looks more robust; with newly designed headlamps, incorporating radiator grille openings that are larger and adopt Toyota’s trademark trapezoidal shape.
The new front bumper has sharper edges that add to the visual strength, while the corners have been pulled back slightly to emphasise the more dynamic face. At the back changes are a tad more subtle – there are new tail-light clusters and the tailgate’s exterior handle has been repositioned for enhanced ergonomic efficiency.
An all-new addition to the Quantum range is the Crew Cab. It is based on the super-long wheelbase, wide-body high-roof variant and is available in either petrol or diesel. It features a second row of seating that allows ample space for six people, as well as all their gear, thanks to the extra-long loadbox.
Toyota says the twin sliding side doors, with windows, provide airy access to the rear and flexible seating means that the rear pews can be folded up, or completely removed, to accommodate extra cargo. Another nifty feature, according to Toyota, is the middle front seat – when not in use, the backrest can be folded forward to provide a convenient table with additional cup holders.
“The latest product enhancements, introduced for the 2014 model, are designed to make it even more versatile and offer business users superior quality during their working day,” says Glenn Crompton, vice president of marketing for Toyota South Africa Motors.
