Mini Bus

Hiace is another word for reliable in New Zealand, built tough, but with stylish, modern looks. The Toyota Hiace Minibus is the standard bearer for small groups travelling around New Zealand. Perfect for self guided family groups, private guides trips or anything else that requires a large amount of backseat drivers, the this 12 seater fits the bill. The interior is as cavernous as it is clever. The intelligently designed layout helps you to maximise the number of people and amount of luggage you can carry, complete with an easy entry-and-exit sliding door.
