TOYOTA AVENSIS MAINTAINS ITS HIGHLY COMPETITIVE POSITION WITH PRICE REDUCTION OF UP TO 8%

Toyota has reduced the cost of its already competitively priced Avensis by up to eight per cent (£1,250) to maintain its value for money position in the upper medium segment. The Avensis range offers outstanding value for both retail and fleet customers with prices starting at just £12,995 on the road.

New Avensis already represented an average five per cent value improvement when it was launched in August. The latest realignment means Avensis is now up to 13% better value than it was just four months ago. Higher equipment levels include: satellite navigation, Thatcham category 1 alarm system, six speaker RDS CD tuner plus steering wheel audio controls on the biggest selling fleet GS derivative.

Some 75 per cent of Avensis sales are in the fleet or company car sector where here, not only are standard specification and mechanical refinement important – both class leading attributes for Avensis – but competitive running costs are vital. With this price realignment the fleet appeal of Avensis is now better than ever, and thanks to the low fuel consumption and longer maintenance periods of the new engines Avensis is among the best in the sector.

Michael Cole, Toyota Fleet Sales Operations Manager, comments: “Avensis is a very attractive driving proposition with satellite navigation standard across most of the range. This price realignment furthers its highly competitive position.”

LOW OVERALL RUNNING COSTS

Toyota Fleet has given the data on the new car to Emmox Carcost to produce the following results when calculated over a typical three-year/60,000mile period.

(Fuel price used – £3.68 per gallon or 81 pence per litre.)
