Smart, practical and with that infallible Toyota reputation for reliability, the Toyota Coaster is a single-decker minibus that’s been the workhorse of many fleets since 1969. Today, it continues to deliver outstanding dependability and comfort for travellers, operating in a wide range of roles from airports to hotel bus services, regular ‘hopper’ buses and for private hire. The Coaster uses a four-cylinder, 16-valve dual VVT-i engine that delivers enough power to keep this bus rolling all day long.
The engine is more than capable of dealing with continuous stop-start driving without overheating or stressing, and is renowned for its robust build quality. Unlike diesel buses, the Coaster is a petrol engine vehicle, making it considerably quieter and more pleasant for passengers and driver. A subtle colour palette that can be easily customised or sign written makes the Coaster adaptable for almost any application. Three doors allow passengers to embark and disembark with ease.
The GCC specification vehicles come with good safety features, including airbags on the front for the driver and at the sides for the passengers.
The manual transmission gives the driver complete control over the power delivery, and driver-assist options include a rear parking aid and traction control for a smoother ride. With enough space for up to 23 passengers, the Toyota Coaster is small enough to be practical and easy to drive in urban environments, yet large enough to cope with high-use applications such as airport runs and remain fuel-efficient and cost-effective to run.
