After years of absence from the commercial vehicle market, Japanese manufacturer Toyota now offers a new van, an own-brand version of the popular vehicle also sold as the Citroen Jumpy and Peugeot Expert.
The Toyota ProAce differs from the other two in the front styling and little else, as indeed is also the case with the other two models.
The new ProAce is a medium size van with a generous cargo compartment compared to the market standard and all the equipment we have come to expect from a modern light commercial.
The latest series, introduced in 2016, is available in three lengths: Compact, Standard and Long.
The chassis is completely new though the overall lines of the van differ little from the previous series. The cargo compartment is large for the van's external dimensions and square in shape. An overall height of only 1.9 metres means the new ProAce can easily enter garages and other places where headroom is limited.
The Syncro Group supplies a complete range of liners for the cargo compartment of the Toyota ProAce, including plywood floor liners
with a resin or rubber-coated surface and aluminium floor liners too, wall liners
in painted steel, aluminium or honeycomb plastic, wheel arch liners in steel and plywood or steel and aluminium, and bulkhead liners in plywood or aluminium chequer plate. Syncro’s strong but lightweight liners are made on high precision CNC machines, and follow the shape of the bodywork to perfection. And because they come cut to size and pre-drilled, installation takes only a few minutes.
To meet the professional needs of all users, the Syncro Group produces a wide range of modular racking for the Toyota ProAce. The Syncro catalogue includes shelves
, wheel arch cabinets, drawers
, containers, cases, work benches
and more besides. And modular design means maximum flexibility in addition to industrial quality.
The cargo compartment of this Toyota ProAce is protected by a marble-look plywood floor liner, galvanised and painted steel bodywork liners and a plywood bulkhead liner.
The racking on the left of the van starts with two floor-level compartments with lift-and-rotate doors
, four large, robust steel drawers with telescopic, ball-bearing runners and automatic latching mechanisms, four shelves with space dividers and 12 removable polypropylene containers
The configuration on the right starts with a floor-level compartment with a door. Above this are three steel drawers, a shelf and, at the top, a steel cabinet of transparent containers with automatic latching and release buttons. These containers are extremely practical as they let you see immediately exactly what’s inside.
The van is also equipped with a powerful but low-consumption LED ceiling light
and two cargo bars with lashing straps.
Syncro loading ramps
let you load and unload all kinds of cargo and equipment to and from your ProAce. Ramps come in fixed and removable versions, with load capacities ranging from 200 kg to 1800 kg.
To exploit the roof of the ProAce, Syncro offers a range of modular steel and aluminium roof bars, roof racks and ladder racks
, all of which can be customised to meet your needs.
