The first Toyota Hilux pick-up arrived back in 1968, and today it’s famous for its dependability and near-unbreakable durability. Toyota offers three models: a two-seater Single Cab, a four-seater Extra Cab and a four-door, five-seater Double Cab, with the latter sacrificing some of its load space for extra seats.

Many owners fit a rear load cover for added security and Toyota dealers offer a huge array of options. There are two diesel engines to choose from: a 120bhp 2.5-litre D-4D engine and a punchier 171bhp 3.0-litre D-4D. Three trim levels include HL2, HL3 and the lavish Invincible, with the latter version getting distinctive exterior styling, privacy glass and even a full-colour sat-nav.

In terms of list price, the Hilux is cheaper than all of its rivals bar the Mitsubishi L200, and the top-spec Hilux Invincible comes with plenty of standard kit. Service intervals are frequent at each 10,000 miles, but as the Hilux is classed as a commercial vehicle, those entitled to claim back VAT can do so. This means that you can buy the range-topping Invincible model for less than £20,000. The Hilux is a great pickup, but it’s still just a pickup and that means that it’s a useful thing to have about the place, but it’s no substitute for a car.
