Now, moving on to their features comparison, starting with the exterior.

Exterior

Irrespective of the variant, the Hilux looks bolder with a commanding presence on the road. The front end is adorned with a large three-dimensional hexagonal grille, which comes darkened and extended with the Rogue trim. Not only that, but the top-spec also features some more exterior pizzas. Here we have a comparison.

The comparison reveals the G MT, V AT, and Rogue AT almost have some features; the latter differentiates itself with more premium upholstery. Overall, the cabin looks much appealing that it could even beat a luxury car. 

Engine specifications

Last year’s upgrade also improved the engine performance of the Hilux. While the smaller 2.4-litre mill gets refinements for better cooling and fuel consumption with the same output levels, the technical improvements in the bigger 2.8-litre turbo unit resulted in 27 PS extra power and 50 Nm more torque.

Safety

With the 2020 model year, the Japanese automaker introduced the Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) advanced driver assistance suite for the Hilux, although it is limited to the high-end Rogue model. The pack comprises a pre-collision system, dynamic radar cruise control, and lane departure alert with steering and brake assist.
