One of the first things I noticed in Bali were the ubiquitous Toyota Kijang minivans driving around. One small detail of the Kijang drew my attention immediately: the headlights!

Recognize them already?
Indeed: they are recycled from the Toyota Crown S120 series!

On another one I found this GTV Executive sticker:

No idea if it is genuine, but if so then this must have been the sporty version of the Kijang…

    I Think KIJANG means a deer in Indonesia

    While in our country here in Philippines we have also a version of KIJANG but it is called TOYOTA TAMARAW. Tamaraw means Dwarf Buffalo

    Thanks! That explains the deer emblem on some of them!
    After two and a half weeks of exposure I’ve grown used to them already. Too bad they are all RHD: would have been a hoot to drive them back in the Netherlands. 🙂

    i think the GTV is not a sporty version…it’s just some other body version (or feature version)for kijang. So many version build by local body manufacturer for kijang in indonesia beside the original version from indonesian toyota.
