Extra safety for Toyota models

VEHICLE manufacturer Toyota has improved its safety standards with the introduction of new specification on all its 1.8 VVT-i versions of the Avensis.

The group now has vehicle stability control, traction control and brake assist as standard alongside ABS brakes and electronic brakeforce distribution.

The new specifications were introduced on March 1 and as a result on the road prices of all 1.8 VVT-i models will increase by £382.

The three new safety measures are already standard on Toyota's 2.0-litre and 2.4-litre VVT-I Avensis models.

At the same time, prices for the 2.0 and 2.4-litre petrol and 2.0-litre diesel will increase by £132, which Toyota points out is a below inflation rise.
