UMW Toyota Motor (UMWT) has a new range of accessories, especially for the Toyota Hilux and Sienta. The new accessories are a TRD aerokit for the Hilux Double Cab (current generation) and a Tailgate Assist (for current generation and previous generation), and an Aerokit for the Sienta.

The new TRD Aerokit for the Hilux, priced at RM4,800 (inclusive of GST and installation charges), consists of 5 items: Front Grille, Front Lower Bumper Cover, Over Fenders, Skid Plate and Shift Knob. Owners of the Hilux 2.8G also have the option of including the TRD 18-inch alloy wheels (4 pieces) with exclusive wheel nuts at extra cost.

The Tailgate Assist for the Hilux has been developed in response to customer feedback which showed a request for easier opening and closing of the heavy tailgate. Toyota’s engineers have designed an additional spring/damper unit which can ‘reduce’ the heaviness of the tailgate by up to 95%. The damper also controls the opening speed so that the tailgate does not swing down right away.

Priced at RM985 (inclusive of GST), the Tailgate Assist can be installed on the current Hilux as well as all Double Cab variants of the previous generation (2005 – 2016). Installation can be done at UMWT’s service centres.

For the Sienta MPV, the Aerokit, which is priced at RM2,950 (inclusive of GST), consists of 3 parts – a sporty front bumper spoiler and side skirts for the left and right sides which give a low-slung look to the car.

All the items have been specially designed by TRD Asia for the Hilux and have the same high quality standards as Toyota vehicles. Owners who already have the Hilux or Sienta can also purchase the aerokits and have them installed at UMWT’s service centres by specially trained personnel. As such, the high quality of work is assured for peace of mind.

Small antenna attached to the windscreen – no need to lift the unit while passing through the toll plaza
Card reader, which gets power from the car’s electrical system, can be stowed in the centre console.

Also available is a SmartTAG unit specially designed for all current Toyota vehicles as well as previous generations of certain models. Although the SmartTAG sold by PLUS can be affixed on the windscreen, many motorists do not do so for fear of it being stolen. With the specially designed unit for Toyota vehicles that has an antenna/transmitter attached to the windscreen, the unit can be hidden in the centre console so it cannot be seen easily and is unlikely to be stolen.

It can be connected to the vehicle’s battery so there is also no worry of running out of power. The custom-designed unit, priced at RM329 (inclusive of GST), consists of a card reader which the Touch’nGo card is inserted into. When the stored value in the card is RM10 or less, there is a warning beep to alert the driver.

The cost of all accessories can be included in the hire-purchase loan taken for new vehicle purchases. This is more advantageous than if they are purchases from accessory shops where the full amount will have to be paid right away.

All items these accessories items come with a warranty covering manufacturing and installation defects for 3 years or 100,000 kms (whichever occurs first after purchase of the accessories).

Further Information on the new accessories is available at authorised Toyota showrooms and service centres nationwide. Visit to locate showrooms or service centres.
