"I have been a loyal Kijang for many years, using it since the 2nd generation’s Kijang Commando. At that time, there was nothing quite like it, with its large capacity and the ability to be used as an operational office car. In also being a comfortable family car, the Kijang is second to none."

Mrs. Radiani

Housewife

“Since 1992, my family has bought Kijangs. As a family car that is comfortable and good quality, in 2001, we once traveled from Medan to Jogja (a trip that took 3 days) using the Kijang. It was so tough and gave us no problems during the trip. Alhamdulillah, until now (2015) the Kijang has remained loyal for 23 years as a family vehicle… Thank you Toyota Kijang.”

Mrs. Ajeng Vina

"The Kijang was always very useful for my family. With me and my three brothers, our parents consideration at that time was always convenience for the children, so my father and mother always chose the Kijang as a means of transportation. Now that I am a mother, my choice was obvious when it came to our children’s comfort…the Kijang."

Mr. Hendi Cahyadi

"Because of its suitability and toughness in navigating the city streets, we chose the Toyota Kijang Kapsul. In 2004 when the Kijang Innova was first launched in Bandung, I immediately bought one. So far, we’re still using it and with no maintenance problems and can't wait to upgrade to the new Innova!”

“The Kijang has been an influential part of my life. During kindergarten, my father took me to school and picked me up after school using his favorite Kijang Grand Extra. I also used a Kijang Innova as my first car when I learned to drive. I particularly like the Kijang Innova because of its great torque and comfortable cabin.”
