It's not on HMRC's list of combi vans but it might be best to call them for a decision.

DVLA

What I also do is check via DVLA vehicle enquiry to see what vehicle class the car/van is registered as. That gives a good indication of what it is.

payload

you need to know the payload etc of vehicle as to if it falls with in  the HMRC category for Van or car.

Usually they fall with in Van, as the manufacturers are aware of the Hmrc criteria.  But you will need to double check.

I think ...

... the Hi-lux is one of those on the cusp!

If it is a pure pick-up its payload is just over the limit of one tonne to enable it to be a van, if it has a hard top fitted (like a Truckman Top) then the payloads falls below the threshold and it is deemed to be a car.

The Hi-Lux has a pay load of 1045 - 1060 Kg depending on engine size, As a hard top weighs upwards of 50kg you see the problem.

VAN

As I understand it a Hilyux IS A VAN

HMRC reccomend the VAT rules are followed which treat the Hilux as a van

http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/manuals/eimanual/EIM23150.htm  and they have agreed the hard top (if fitted)  

and they have agreed that if a hard top is fitted it has a weight (standard for all twin cabs) of 45kg (see that refererred to on teh above page) so the 1 tonne rule on a hilux would bring the weight down to 1,000kg using OGAs payload

so on that basis VAN!

I hope.........

.

Not a van but a commercial vehicle for VAT purposes.

Direct tax legilsation follows the VAT lead and deems this a van for the purposes of BIK and CA's.

I think Toyota Hi-lux is one of those on the cusp, its one of the best models of Toyota.
