300 Series Performance

Hino 4.0Litre Common Rail Diesel Engine

Hino’s N04C turbo-diesel engine offers a class-leading combination of power and torque. The 4.0-litre engine is equipped with a common-rail fuel injection system and variable geometry turbo technology to achieve lower emissions and uncompromised power and fuel efficiency.

Meeting both strict Euro 5 and Enhanced Environmentally-Friendly Vehicle (EEV) emissions standards (without needing Ad Blue), the new model’s gains in power, torque and fuel efficiency have been achieved through careful attention to engine design, turbocharger pressures and the high-pressure (common-rail) electronic fuel injection.

The engine features a cooled exhaust-gas recirculation system and closed crankcase ventilation, while the best Diesel Particulate Active Reduction System (DPR) system in its class has an 800,000km service interval and an automatic self-cleaning system which begins when the filter is only at 30 per cent of overall capacity.

Injection pressures have been increased and a new intercooler adopted, and the Hino engine has the added reliability of three fuel filters.

Wide cab manual models have 121kW of power at 2500rpm and 464Nm of torque at 1400rpm (N04C-UT), with a six-speed transmission.

Standard cab and wide cab automatic are rated at 110kW and 420Nm (N04C-US).

Standard cab has the choice of five-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission, while the wide cab auto also has a six-speed transmission.

ProShift 5 Automated Manual Transmission(AMT

The Hino Hybrid 300 Series features Hino's ProShift 5 Automated Manual Transmission (AMT).

The ProShift 5 AMT employs an electronic control unit to control the changing of gears and operation of the clutch. Unlike other AMT equipped light duty trucks the Hino has no clutch - the sophisticated electronics perform all clutching functions allowing easy, two-pedal only operation.


300 Series Interior

Cabin Space

Cabin entry and exit on the new 300 Series has been improved with larger, class-leading door apertures, wider opening doors, larger steps, increased foot and leg space, and even a collapsible gearshift lever to allow the driver to slide more easily across to the passenger side if required.

Driver comfort has been maximised by adopting a tilt and telescopic-adjustable steering column, and providing a greater range of seat adjustment to allow drivers of all heights to better tailor the seat position to their needs.

Cabin entry and exit has been improved by increasing the duck-in height, moving the A-pillar forward to increase foot space, and enlarging the foot step. Foot and leg space has been further increased by raising the lower edge of the instrument panel, while in the wide cab, foot space is sufficient for a centre-seat passenger with size 14 boots to sit comfortably with toes pointing directly ahead. 

Hino trucks are ergonomically designed to provide a functional cabin, with fingertip controls and column stalks positioned so that the driver has no need to take their hands off the wheel at any time.

New Hino 300 Series wide cab models are fitted with an ergonomically designed fully-adjustable driver's seat for maximum comfort.



300 Series InstrumentsThe new Hino 300 Series cabin has been equipped with clear-to-read instruments and easy-to-reach controls and switchgear, providing passenger car levels of drivability and safety.

All Hino trucks are ergonomically designed to provide a functional cabin, with fingertip controls and column stalks positioned so that the driver has no need to take their hands off the wheel at any time.

All 300 Series variants are equipped with class-leading Optitron instruments, which can be read from all angles and in all lighting conditions. Every model is equipped with a tachometer, speedometer, and full suite of warning gauges and lights. The dash features blank DIN mounting slots (for additional radio equipment) and there are a number of switch mounting holes to cater for accessories that may be added.

All models have factory-fitted Denso air conditioning, remote central locking with an integrated engine immobiliser, and power-operated windows and mirrors. Crew Cabin models feature an auxiliary rear air conditioner unit - the only light truck in Australia with these combined features.

All manual 300 Series models have Hino’s ES (Easy Start) hill-start assist, which can be switched off using a dash mounted switch.

Driver's Suspension Seat

300 series suspension seatNew Hino 300 Series wide cab models are fitted with an ergonomically designed fully-adjustable driver's seat for maximum comfort.

The seat runners are positioned on an incline to better cater for short and taller drivers (a first for any light-duty truck), placing the seat in a better relative position to the trucks pedals.

All wide cabin models have a driver's suspension seat with torsion-bar suspension and magnetic dampening as standard equipment, further improving driver comfort, but also reducing fatigue over longer distances.

Hino's seat design provides maximum driver comfort for all road conditions; from smooth roads through to heavily corrugated surfaces.
