Since we are approaching the launch date of the new Toyota Proace in Europe, the Japanese carmaker decided to release a fresh set of images of its commercial and passenger van series that replaces the Hiace.

If the van's appearance looks eerily familiar, it is because Toyota entered an OEM agreement with PSA Peugeot Citro├źn to rebadge its Citroen Jumpy and Peugeot Expert models. There's also a fourth variant of the series produced by Fiat and named the Scudo.
