The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) will use the fleet for its managers, safety consultants and driver training staff to promote accident prevention and is urging other fleets to follow the Euro NCAP route.
Charles Davis, head of driver and fleet solutions at RoSPA, said: 'In line with RoSPA's key issue of managing occupational road risk, we would urge other fleet mangers to consider Euro NCAP ratings when selecting vehicles for their fleets.
'Gone are the days when fleet managers could just hand over the keys to a car and say 'get on with it'. We all have to work together to risk assess drivers and give them the right training.
'We wanted to get a serious safety message across when choosing our new fleet of vehicles and with the Avensis we have done that.'
