Toyota is putting the 2016 Hilux through its paces as our spies caught the model undergoing testing in the mountains.

Dressed in swirly camouflage, the redesigned truck has an evolutionary appearance but adopts a sportier front fascia with a slender grille that is flanked by distinctive headlights. We can also a larger cabin, a bigger rear window and what appears to be a beefier rear bumper.

There's no word on performance specifications but the model is expected to be offered with a variety of petrol and diesel engines. There have also been rumors about a hybrid variant but nothing is official as of yet.
