Toyota ousts Vauxhall in 50-car contract

TOYOTA has clinched a 50-car solus fleet deal with the Charles Manson Group, which is scrapping its former arrangement with Vauxhall. All of the vehicles are on contract hire for a three-year term, with the sales force taking the Avensis GS 2.0-litre turbodiesels - replacing Vectras -and the 12 branch managers driving the 2.2-litre Toyota Camry saloon.

Ruddington-based Manson, which imports and sells timber, says the Toyota line-up won on wholelife costs, specification and reliability. And Manson company secretary Peter Burton added: 'Comments from the drivers of the cars have also been very good. Drivers seem to feel they compare favourably with what they had before, so they have been happy to make the change.'
