The Toyota Probox and Toyota Succeed

The Toyota Probox/Succeed is the new Toyota Kid on the Block in Kenya. It is the predecessor of Toyota 102/103. It is quite a common car around Eastleigh in Nairobi, South C and Meru. It has also started reaching Garissa and Wajir.

The Kenya Toyota Club thinks that this is a good car for a starter businessman. The rear seats can be removed to create more carriage space. This could make a good car for selling eggs, pharmaceuticals and such light merchandise.

The Toyota Probox has only one shortcoming. It does not have leaf springs. It has coil springs. However, it is still a strong car though it is much lighter.

The car seats are mainly fabric. There are no leather seats for this model. This makes it more of a factory car than a luxury car. However, you can still spruce it up into a hotter version.

The probox and the succeed are mainly automatic gear transmitted but there are a number of them that are manual gears. They were released by the Toyota Motor Corporation in 2002 and they have recorded great sales within Asia and Africa in the last 3 years. It has a simple dashboard with basic features like the speedometer, a digital odometer, the air conditioning system and the radio.

Toyota Probox has a simple engine. They are mostly 1500 cc engines. There are a few that are 1300 cc. Most of the probox models have VVTI engines.

Difference between Probox and Succeed

The Toyota Succeed look has lights bordering the number plate area. The Probox has no lights on the rear door.

  6. Hey guys let me be part of this i am in Zambia and the only one with a toyota succeed in northern province. please help me i had both side view mirrors stolen where can i find replacements.

  7. @pst lewis, you need to talk to mechanics near you and ask them if they can replace with modified mirrors which are operated manually, this is what kenyans. Alternatively you can go to downtown shops in your town and buy second hand ones (actually stolen ones). The thieves who stole your mirrors usually sell them to second hand pars dealers. They are expensive, around 100 usd for one mirror. If you replace with second hand power mirrors make sure you protect them with a chain or else they will be stolen again

  9. Only the Americans do leaf sprung suspension in saloon cars in this modern age! And if you'd bothered with your research you'd know the Probox was designed mainly for goods transport(mounting points in the boot, removable rear seats) while the Succeed has a bias towards passengers(more creature comforts).
    Research!!

  13. i have a Toyota succeed 2003 for 2yrs now and have driven it every where!! i mean every where , tsavo game park , Masai Mara Taita hills hills western Kenya rough roads you name it! The succeed comes as the better car to buy gives you both passenger comfort and luggage or whatever business you need doing. It has a higher resale value than the pro box . Always comes with 1500cc. Dont Touch the 1300cc , please!! better of you just buy a vitz then. For longer lasting on engine free of mechanical problems buy the 1500cc. has better hill climbing capability even at full load over 750kgs!
