Boat safety

group

concerned

over draft

breakwater

design

• By Samantha Mythen

THE BOAT Safety at Naval Point,

Lyttelton group has expressed

concern about the area’s $27

million development draft plan,

and has asked the city council to

still consider its feedback on the

breakwater.

In November last year, the draft

plan was approved by the Banks

Peninsula Community Board after

two development options had

been released for public consultation

in July.

During these consultations,

support for option two with a

fixed breakwater, connected to

the spit, featured strongly in the

feedback. A breakwater is a structure

constructed near coastal land

which protects a launching and

receiving area from harsh weather

and water drift.

However, in the draft plan, a

design was chosen featuring a

smaller breakwater with two exit

and entry points. None of the affected

groups had been consulted

on this new design.

14 De Thier Lane, Sumner

To be sold by deadline sale by 29 Jan (unless sold prior)

3001m² section - Listing no. OPA24724

Enjoying a supreme situation on the lower slopes of Richmond Hill,

this magnificently proportioned approx 3001m section serves up

spectacular ocean views and provides buyers with an exceptional

array of opportunities. Following the demolition of the venors

previous home, the site is essentially a blank canvas and now only

hosts the home’s old footprint, a double garage and a portion of

retaining walls (being sold “as is, where is”). The 180-degree vistas

are sublime, covering Pegasus Bay and beyond. Better yet, this

parcel of land is exceptionally private, soaked in sunshine and cannot

be built out which provides significant appeal for those wanting to

construct their very own residential masterpiece.

Properties of this scale, and in this location are a genuine rarity, and

their scarcity should encourage your earliest enquiry.

New parking restrictions soon

In Brief

• By Samantha Mythen

BOAT SHED owner Hayden

Yessev has had enough of

vehicles illegally parking by the

Duvauchelle public boat ramp.

He said he has seen some

vehicles overstay

the 10min parking

restriction by up to 13

hours.

Yessev has been lobbying

the city council

for clearer parking signage

for nearly a year.

Steffan

Thomas

Care &

Compassion

We pride ourselves on the

very highest level of service

Over the Christmas

period he saw a car overstaying

the limit almost

every day.

This is creating issues for

others wanting to access the

space.

The parking restriction is

next to the Duvauchelle boat

ramp and has the short time

duration to allow marine users

to efficiently access the water.

Said city council transport

operations manager Steffan

Thomas: “The parking restriction

is in place to provide opportunities

for boat ramp users

to load and unload equipment

and passengers before parking

elsewhere.”

“The boat ramp is a busy

facility that is subject to high

demand at peak times for access

and parking.”

Yessev’s persistent campaigning

appears to be paying off.

On November 16 last year,

the decision was made by the

Banks Peninsula Community

Board to decrease the parking

time limit to 5min and

to design the area as a

loading zone rather than

a parking area. The city

council approved this

change and new 5min

loading zone signs are

soon to be installed with

new road markings also

put in place.

A city council spokesperson

said traffic operations

staff had visited the site on numerous

occasions to investigate

the issue prior to the board’s

decision.

“The P5 loading zone will

reinforce that it is not a place

to park for extended periods

of time and that users must be

actively loading and unloading

within the space,” Thomas

said.

“I suspect it’s not always the

boat owner parking there, but

their mate who is new to the

area who doesn’t see the sign.

Hopefully, the new signage

and clearer road markings will

make it more obvious,” Yessev

said.

SOLUTION: The 10min parking restriction will soon be changed to

a P5 loading zone. Inset: The boat ramp is a popular parking area.

Wishing you all a Happy New Year

and the very best for 2021

Youth a priority for community board

• By Samantha Mythen

ENVIRONMENT and youth

– these are the top priorities for

the Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board in the

coming months.

But their number one priority

for the beginning of 2021 is finding

a deputy chair.

“We are

looking for

someone who

has the time

and drive to

take this position

on,” said

chairwoman,

Alexandra

Alexandra

Davids

Davids.

The search

for a full board

comes after Davids survived a

leadership coup late last year

by five fellow board members

representing themselves as the

Labour-aligned People’s Choice.

Davids was first elected to

the board in 2013 and since

April 2019, she had worked as

chairwoman. This was after the

resignation of Sally Buck, one of

Christchurch’s longest-serving

elected members.

The People’s Choice members

Jake McLellan, Yani Johanson,

Michelle Lomax, Jackie Simons

and Sunita Gautam faced public

PRIORITIES: Children at the temporary skate park facility in Sumner. Designs for a

permanent skate park and green area received public feedback last year.

PHOTO: NEWSLINE

backlash for their calls that Davids

step down. They eventually

revoked their plans.

Once a new deputy chair is

found, focus will turn to the

board’s long term plan and setting

priorities for the rest of the

year.

This includes continued work

on the Sumner park and skate

area with community consultation

taken into consideration.

From October to November last

year, the board heard from 141

individuals and groups on development

of the area.

The village green site has since

be included as part of the design,

meaning the space will be a

place for the entire community

to enjoy.

The board will be contributing

to a climate change workshop on

February 24.

“This will help us to decide on

where we can best put our efforts

to help make some positive

tangible change,” she said.

An exciting event for young

people based in the Linwood and

Ferrymead area is planned for

March. The board has partnered

with Youth and Cultural Development

and the Eastgate Mall

to host the Ball in the Mall high

school event.

Because most high schools

had to postpone their functions

and ball events in 2020 due to

Covid-19, the mall saw a need in

the community to nurture their

youth. The board is assisting

with some of the financing and

staffing of the event.

Manager of Eastgate Mall,

Louise Ledger, is also setting up

a pop-up store in the mall to

help students with their formal

attire.

“I am definitely very hopeful

for 2021. I think last year proved

that having a positive outlook

and always believing that things

will be better in the end is

essential,” Davids said.

CONCERNS: Members of the Boat Safety at Naval Point, Lyttelton

James Ensor, Roger Allen and Eden Husband are hoping for a long

breakwater, connected to the existing spit, to be put in place with the new

developments.

PHOTO MONTAGE: GEOFF SLOAN ​

Group worried that further

problems would develop

• From page 1

The Boat Safety at Naval

Point, Lyttelton group expressed

concern over why

this idea was presented

when there was unanimous

support and feedback for

option two with the fixed

breakwater.

“We decided on the best

option and then this came

out as something we’d

never seen,” Roger Allen,

who has 73 years of

sailing experience,

said.

“We give credit to

the council because

the consultation process

was quite good

and they did have options,”

member Eden

Husband said.

“But then they proposed

their own venture with a

reduced breakwater.”

The group, which has

been campaigning for 28

years for development of

the public boat ramp and

surrounding marine area,

strongly argued for the

fixed breakwater during

the consultations.

“The critical thing with

boating is to protect the

area that you launch and

retrieve your vessels, and

to have an area for boats

to congregate safely while

they are waiting to get off

the water,” Husband said.

They are worried that

if the draft plan design is

chosen for the final plan to

be modelled off, it will only

create more problems.

Allan explained that

having two entry and

exit points may result in

dangerous traffic issues

and congestion, aggravated

by those who do not fully

understand boating rules.

The protected area would

be smaller, meaning less

boats would be sheltered

from the bad weather and

the launching area would

not receive sufficient

coverage from the

winds. It would

also be harder

for larger sailing

boats to launch

safely.

“The general

concern of the

public is modelling

of the shorter

structure is inadequate for

the needs of the environment,”

member James

Ensor said.

Banks Peninsula Community

Board chairwoman

Tori Peden told Bay

Harbour News that what

was passed as the draft

plan would not be the final

design, hoping to reassure

the likes of Boat Safety and

other concerned groups.

“What was passed by the

board is not set in concrete

and we are now consulting

with engineers,” she said.

“The draft plan was just

one step in the process and

it shows roughly where

everything will go. We are

still yet to finalise aspects

such as the number of car

parks and the breakwater

Tori Peden

length.”

However, Boat Safety are

concerned around why the

majority supported option

for the longer breakwater

had not been included in

any engagement from the

council since.

They are worried that a

sticking plaster approach

will be taken to the project,

having seen many failures

since they first started

campaigning.

“We would like to see

more design and modelling

around the second option,

which is what everyone

supported. The community

using the facilities needs to

feel safe and secure,” said

Ensor.

Anthony Whitely, who

has worked as deputy and

regional harbour master

for eight years, also supported

a new longer breakwater

moulded into the spit

currently in place.

“This gives more protection

from the winds for

vessels in the area of the

slipway and allows for

more room to manoeuvre,”

he said.

“Our argument as always

been before you build the

asset, protect it,” Husband

said.

Peden confirmed that

further testing of the

proposed breakwater

layout will be carried out

ensuring the best possible

option is chosen and safety

of the facility users being

paramount.

New Year, New

Opportunities!

Is this your year of change? Did you

put your feet up over Christmas and

think about what 2021 might bring?

New house, new career, change of

direction? All of the above? We know

life is full of opportunities and change

is our constant companion. Some of us

embrace it and some are happy with the

status quo. Where do you fit in?

There is plenty of evidence to suggest

the real estate market is going to

continue to be buoyant at least for

the first part of the year. Interest

rates are still at an historical low and

are continuing to drop, Kiwis are

returning home in droves and there is

unprecedented demand for housing

in all price ranges. Multiple bidders at

auctions and multiple offers on deadline

sales are very much the norm in the

current market. Is this your year to sell?

Or, is this your year to enter real estate

as a career? If there was ever a time

to get into the business of real estate

then it has got to be now. Invariably at

this time of year we get enquiries from

people from all walks of life looking at a

change of career. If it is something you

have been contemplating or are keen to

know more about then we would love to

hear from you.

Surprise accolade for Sumner’s Finnish recruit

• By Chris Barclay

KALLE VALIMAKI has an

unexpected addition to his

sporting CV as he embarks on

his first pre-season with new

club Sumner, the promising

prop was surprised to learn he is

Finland’s latest rugby player of

the year.

Valimaki, who spent four seasons

with Methven in the Mid-

Canterbury competition before

targeting the step up to Christchurch’s

Metro Premiership in

2021, discovered last week he was

recognised in Finland’s equivalent

of the Halberg Awards.

“I woke up last Thursday and I

had a message from Dad (Simo)

saying: ‘Congratulations my son’

and I was like, my birthday was

in December’,” Valimaki said.

A quick scan of his old rugby

club’s facebook page confirmed

the accolade, meaning had he

been back in Helsinki – and

Covid-19 was not an issue – the

26-year-old would have been

mixing with elite ice hockey

stars, footballers and Olympic

class skiers.

Ultimately the gala was scaled

back so Valimaki, who works as

a chef in the Arts Centre, was

content to be back in Covid-free

Christchurch.

“It was a pleasant surprise, I

never got any heads-up,” said

Valimaki, who was introduced to

rugby as an 18-year-old.

He preferred indoor hockey

and football before a chance

meeting with a Dutch rugby

player at a party, who suggested

he had the build for the front

row.

“I remember my first training

session, it was in a horse stable in

the winter because it was -25 deg

C outside.

“I remember running into

contact for the first time thinking

this is pretty exciting. I just

fell in love with the sport.”

A specialist loosehead, Valimaki’s

Kiwi coach in Finland

encouraged him to further his

development in New Zealand

and he ended up in Methven in

early 2017, two years after debuting

for the national side.

“I didn’t really know where

Methven was but I had just

finished chef school and there

was nothing holding me back. I

TALENTED: Finnish international prop

the Watters Cup with Methven before

answering an SOS call from Sumner

late last season, the club he will play for

in 2021.

decided to overseas to play rugby

for a year and now I’m living

here permanently.”

Valimaki has 15 caps for

Finland, his most recent test was

in 2019 when he was flown to

Vienna for their first-ever test

with Austria.

“It was a round trip in a week

so I was pretty shattered, 30

hours there and 30 hours back,”

he recalled.

Still, the trip was worthwhile

as Finland edged the European

Nations Cup clash 32-29.

Valimaki also had a memorable

2020 once the global pandemic

curtailed a backpacking

trip around Europe with his

partner Emma Petersen.

They returned to New Zealand

from Italy via Finland last

March, enabling Valimaki to

feature in Methven’s triumphant

march to the Watters Cup.

Valimaki then learned Sumner

was struggling for numbers in

Christchurch’s Metro Premier

grade so he made himself available

at the tail end of a challenging

campaign.

“I played about five minutes off

the bench in Sumner’s last game

against Marist Albion. Even

though they had a tough season,

the atmosphere was good,” he

said, looking forward to contributing

to a resurgence.

Work commitments limit

Valimaki’s ability to catch Crusaders

or Canterbury games live,

though he does keep a watchful

eye on premier All Black loosehead

Joe Moody.

“I’ve actually met Joe, we had

a bit of a chat. We’re about the

same height, he’s a bit stockier,

which is understandable, he’s

a professional athlete. I was

sort of sizing him up,” he said,

acknowledging: “I’ve got a wee

way to go.”

Edith Cavell Corner

The beautifully refurbished gardens are ready to be enjoyed by Edith Cavell’s residents.

Gardens set for

the “Wow” factor!

Looking after Edith Cavell’s much-loved gardens is Head

Gardener, Dave Milne. A lot of his career was spent working

at the Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh, one of the most

prestigious botanical gardens in the world.

Dave says he loves the atmosphere at Edith Cavell, “It’s so lovely

and quaint, and quiet with lovely surrounds.”

He’s excited about bringing lots of colour, brightness and joy to

the refurbished gardens at Edith Cavell. You may have already

noticed the new burst of colour at the entrance. “We really want to

bring the ‘Wow factor’ to the village gardens,” says Dave.

Dave says the established trees, such as the Weeping Elm and

Tulip Tree, are special features and he wants to build on the

existing garden by creating layers of canopies. He says the

gardens are a wonderful place for residents to walk around and

spend time in. “I want to make sure there’s year-round interest in

the garden. Something new and lovely to look at every month of

the year,” he says.

Dave also enjoys seeing what the residents in the villas do with

their own individual gardens,

“I’m all for it, and we’re always ready to help if they want anything

ripped out or moved.” Dave says the Sumner community will enjoy

the developments over the next months, including new gardens on

Dryden Street, “Watch this space!”

refurbishment.

HABITAT: Mt Pleasant School pupils learning about ecology during a

survey of the Drayton Reserve Stream, under the supervision of local

freshwater ecologist Kirsty Brennan of EOS Ecology.

Encouraging a greater

emphasis on ecology

Dave Bryce of the Redcliffs/

Te Rae Kura Eco Village

group says it is focusing on

biodiversity and ecology

during January

WE ALL KNOW something

about economics, but

what do we know about

ecology?

Both words come from

the Greek word “oikos”

meaning “home”, in an

holistic sense.

Economics is the study

of the financial behaviour

of humans, as the

management of individuals,

households, cities or

nations.

Ecology, however, is the

study of the full behaviour

of all organisms on

earth over billions of years,

and yes, that includes us

humans.

Economics does not

include the contribution of,

or impact on nature, of all

human financial activities,

and fundamentally therefore,

leads to unsustainable

behaviour.

Ecology, however, is comprehensive,

is the basis of

many indigenous cultures,

and reflects how organisms

live sustainably with other

organisms and with earth’s

resources.

Surely, we should be

focusing much more on

ecology than we do?

Here are some ecological

principles to think

about, along with similar

old sayings from western

cultures:

1 Observe … note and

understand changes and

long-term implications,

before correcting. Slow

and steady wins the race.

2 Make sure all changes

are necessary, timely, selfregulating

and productive.

Necessity is the mother of

invention.

3 Catch, use, store, and

conserve, accessible renewable

energy … solar and

wind.

Make hay while the sun

shines.

4 Encourage diversity

… maximise the range of

species in systems (unlike

monoculture). Don’t put all

your eggs in one basket.

5 Encourage complexity

… for stability, by maximising

positive connections

(co-operation) and allowing

for negative connections

(competition). Many

hands make light work.

6 Recycle … value all

resources, respect natural

cycles.

Waste not, want not.

7 Respect natural organisms

and patterns …

they have evolved here for

reasons. The whole is greater

than the sum of the parts.

8 Encourage “edges” …

for greater productivity –

estuaries, forest margins,

tiered growing. Nature

knows best.

9 Evolve … use and

respond to changes, cooperation

and competition.

All of the flowers that bloom

tomorrow are in the seeds of

today.

10 Respect others …

people and other species,

we are all connected to

each other. One good turn

deserves another.

Our pledges on biodiversity

for 2021 are:

1 Plant your own native

habitat on your property,

or go to community native

tree planting and maintenance

days. Check each

week and note any new

creatures. Use “i-naturalist.

nz”.

2 Pull out and properly

dispose of all weeds on

your property.

3 Trap possums,

hedgehogs, rats, mice and

wasps on your property.

Free computing course

delivers unexpected benefits

A simple desire to become more confident

using computers has opened up a world of

possibilities for business owner Thomas King.

For the past 20 years, Thomas has been a codirector

of a logistics business. Over that time

he’s seen huge changes in the way business is

conducted.

“The world is rapidly changing and to keep

pace with it, having some confidence and

competence in computing is crucial,” he says.

“I realised that I’d have to embrace this scary

but exciting new tech-driven world sooner or

later, and now here I am today, loving what I

once feared.”

Thomas took his first steps in computing at

an Ara Connect community hub, one of several

in Christchurch. Each Ara Connect hub offers

free, non-assessed computing courses for

anyone wanting to gain skills and confidence

using digital technology.

Thomas says the tutors at Ara Connect

welcomed him warmly, made learning an

enjoyable experience and were very supportive.

“I felt so inspired during my journey and this

is a reflection of the good folk who work

at Ara. They’re very attentive and always

eager to assist. They want you to succeed

and they encourage you to push your

boundaries without ever throwing you in

the deep end.”

Discovering something new and amazing

every time he got on a computer was one

of the things Thomas enjoyed most about

his time at Ara. “There are some amazing

apps and software out there just waiting to

be discovered. I’ve especially fallen in love

with collaboration tools which can help me

complete a host of project management tasks.

What I learned was mindboggling and I realise

now that we haven’t even really scratched the

surface of these amazing tools and how useful

they can be.”

Having now completed a New Zealand

Certificate in Computing (Advanced User),

Thomas is considering further study and

possibly a complete career change. “I’m keeping

my options open but a future in IT is becoming

more likely for me with every passing day.”

His advice for anyone else considering

the computing courses at Ara Connect is to

just go for it. “You have the chance to add an

invaluable credential to your CV, and the Level

3 and 4 certificates are a great way to prepare

for further study in any subject. Knowing how

to use computers in a way that delivers results

can make life so much easier, especially in the

world of business. I certainly wish I’d taken

courses like these two decades ago. My advice

is to pluck up the courage and just go for it.”

Tasty Bites

Rest cooked meat before serving

There are very good

reasons for leaving meat

to rest. In the cooking

process, the proteins in

meat set, meaning that

the juices all go to the

middle and the outer

part effectively dries

out. When you rest the

meat it cools just enough

for those juices to be

redistributed and the

outside becomes moist

and tender again. For a

200gm piece of steak,

rest it for six to 10min.

Leave it uncovered in

a warm part of the

kitchen, perhaps over a

stovetop. Larger pieces,

such as roasts, rest for up

to 30min covered with

Girl A

by Abigail Dean

Lex Gracie doesn’t want to think about her family. She doesn’t want to think

about growing up in her parents’ House of Horrors. And she doesn’t want

to think about her identity as Girl A: the girl who escaped. When her mother

dies in prison and leaves Lex and her siblings the family home, she can’t

run from her past any longer. Together with her sister, Evie, Lex intends to

turn the House of Horrors into a force for good. But first she must come to

terms with her six siblings – and with the childhood they shared.

Beautifully written and incredibly powerful, Girl A is a story of redemption,

of horror, and of love.

Toyota Hilux a ute for all the team

DURING THE summer months

my weekends start quite busy.

You see, I’m the coach of a team

of young cricketers, and watching

the 11 and 12-year-olds playing

sport and enjoying themselves is

something I’m very passionate

about.

It’s not always easy for the

parents to be transporting their

children to the games, and I’m

often picking up or dropping off

as circumstances dictate. Just

recently I had three boys to pick

up – and all of their kit, along

with my gear bag. Thankfully, I

was driving a double-cab Toyota

Hilux pick-up, the rear deck area

was well utilised and with four-up

inside we were all comfortable,

there’s as much space in a doublecab

ute as there is any modern

mainstream car.

There’s a new Hilux in dealers’

showrooms now and it has had

a fairly hefty makeover for 2021,

notably more power under the

bonnet, better economy, and a

heap of cosmetic changes that

continue to give the ute buyer

more of a traditional driving

experience.

The latest to come my way was

the range-topping SR5 Cruiser.

Hilux buyers of the past will relate

to the high-grade interior of the

SR5; the Cruiser adds even more

spec, it is high on fitment. Major

items to note are keyless entry

and ignition, satellite navigation

(8in touch screen), full leather

trim with heated front seats,

electrically adjustable front seats

and superb JBL audio. There’s

also a lot of cosmetic detail in the

Cruiser variant, there are piano

black trim details, charcoal and

matte black exterior trim items

and, of course, Cruiser graphics.

That’s a package that will lure

those who like their utes to stand

out in a crowd, it’s not overly

invasive visually but it will draw

attention, the test car was painted

black as well, and it showed real

presence.

A lot of the latter goes to down

to the big wheels, at 18in they are

an inch in diameter bigger than

its SR5 stablemate, and that also

has grip advantages.

All SR5 models are four-wheeldrive

capable, in-cabin switch

gear gives you a multitude of

options if or when you do leave a

sealed surface.

During my testing time I left

the highway just for a short burst

alongside the Waimakariri River,

there’s a nice track that runs

parallel for several kilometres,

but caution and awareness are the

key ingredients for many motorcyclists

fulfil their recreational

needs on those tracks.

Off-road the Hilux’s

mechanical elements provide

surety in the loose, and it is

RUGGED: The Toyota Hilux SR5 Cruiser can handle a

payload of around 940kg.

TOYOTA HILUX SR5 CRUISER: Working and recreational role.

competent and capable when

elevation is presented.

Just like the multitude of pickups

in this part of the market, the

Hilux gets a leaf spring-located

live rear axle. While this may

seem primitive it is by far the best

suspension for a load-bearing

model. It works pretty well, there

is a major articulation on uneven

ground and that gives the best

possible chance of keeping wheel

contact to the ground.

At city speeds the big Dunlop

Grandtrek tyres (265/60) soak

up the bumps and ruts, and

there are still plenty of those in

Christchurch, there is a little

jiggle over the worst of it but,

by and large, the suspension is

supple and absorbent and that’s a

combination hard to get right in

a model that is also destined for a

working role.

On that subject, the payload

capacity of the SR5 cruiser is

940kg, and like all Hilux models

will haul up to 3500kg on the

towbar.

Taking care of the load is

Toyota’s uprated four-cylinder

turbocharged diesel engine,

power is now up to 150kW from

130kW and, more importantly,

torque has been boosted to

500Nm from 420Nm, increases

of 15 per cent and 11 per cent

respectively and, what’s more,

the torque pattern has been

broadened providing much

greater mid-range response and

• Price – Toyota Hilux SR5

Cruiser, $58,490

• Dimensions – Length,

5325mm; width, 1900mm;

height, 1815mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

2755cc, 150kW, 500Nm,

six-speed automatic

• Performance – 0-100km/h,

10.5sec

• Fuel usage – 7.9l/100km

pulling power.

Driving through a sixspeed

automatic transmission,

the engine feels willing and

comfortable, it doesn’t throb

unnecessarily, and even when

hauling to the red line it is well

boosted without turbo lag.

Not only has Toyota got the

engine to work with a broader

power spread, it is also far more

fuel efficient, by 11 per cent to

exact.

The 2755cc unit is now rated

with a combined cycle average

of 7.9l/100km compared to

9l/100km of the previous model.

By my calculations, over time

that would lead to considerable

savings if you are a user who

spends much time on a daily

basis behind the wheel.

When I took the Cruiser back

to the dealership the fuel usage

readout was sitting at 8.9l/100km,

which wasn’t that far distant to

Toyota’s claims, and was good

given that I spent a lot of distance

travelling and commuting at city

speeds. On the highway you can

expect a 7l/100km instantaneous

reading with the engine loping

over casually at just 1800rpm.

At highway speed the Hilux

cruises gently and isn’t a handful

when the long straights run

out. On 18in wheels there is

considerable steering feel, and

that’s a hard thing to get right

when there’s a host of rugged

mechanical elements sitting

underneath.

Composure in a corner is

acceptable and stability at the

rear end is enhanced due to a

comprehensive traction control

system.

Toyota has never sat back and

let sales take care of themselves.

As a company it is constantly

refining and further developing

product. The Hilux is a classic

example of that, and while

it gets the benefits of further

specification enhancements,

it has also had the mechanical

upgrades that will keep it as one

of the Kiwi favourites in the pickup

market.

With 17 models to choose

from there’s a truck for all

requirements, the SR5 Cruiser

tempting the discerning buyer,

one who likes just a little bit more

in a ute without going to hyper,

although I’m sure with Toyota’s

extensive aftermarket option

packages that could be arranged.
