UMW Toyota Motor today presented four lucky buyers of the Toyota Hilux from the 2016 ‘Buy & Win’ campaign, which ran from 1 September until 31 December. This announcement came on the back of the recently announced Toyota Hilux limited edition. The lucky winner received his prize from Khong Man Cheong, Senior Director of Vehicle Sales Group at UMW Toyota Motor.
The Buy & Win campaign offered a Grand Prize of a Toyota Sienta MPV and 5D/4N all-expense paid trip to Tokyo, Japan. The grand przie of a Toyota Sienta MPV was picked up by Chong Chin Fatt from Cameron Highlands. Chong had purchased a Hilux Single Cab 2.4 with manual transmission. It was the third Hilux in his inventroy since 2014. “I know the Hilux well and it is a very durable and reliable truck, able to take me on the slippery roads from the farm to the collection centre to deliver farm produce,” Chin Fatt said. “I thought it was a dream and I was so surprised when they told me that I won a Toyota Sienta!”
Apart from the grand prize, 3 other Hilux customers also won Consolation Prizes of a 5 days/4 nights all-expense paid trip to Tokyo for 2 persons. They were Lee Soon Wen from Pulau Pinang, Douin Madang from Miri, Sarawak, and Nik Muhamad Burhanuddin Bin Nik Mohamed from Jerantut, Pahang. All the three winners were familiar with the reputation of Toyota’s popular pick-up. For Douin Madang, she has her own particular motivations to own the Hilux as she is a proud owner of four units since 2011.
Like many Hilux owners, the four are using the vehicle for business purposes but for them, it is also just as practical for personal use as an alternative to a passenger car. In fact, with the latest 8th generation of the Hilux, Toyota’s designers and engineers have given more passenger car-like features and a more comfortable ride as it is clear that the model has a multi-purpose role for current times.
The Toyota Hilux comes in 6 variants, with Double Cab and Single Cab configurations. Customers also have a choice of two engines, 2.4 liters and 2.8 liters, to suit their requirements. These engines are the new Global Diesel (GD) engine series specially tuned for stronger low-end torque delivery, better response for acceleration, greater reliability under the most extreme conditions, and improved fuel efficiency.
As with all the latest models offered by UMW Toyota Motor, the Toyota Hilux comes with a 5-year warranty (subject to terms and conditions). The warranty, which has identical conditions of coverage throughout the 5 years, is transferable to the next owner if it is still in effect when sold off.
