Toyota’s market-leading, up-to-10-years warranty and the quality of the Toyota Professional network for light commercials have proved key in securing awards for the Proace City and Proace vans.
The awards were announced last night (15 March) as respective winners of the Best Small Van and Best Medium Van categories in the Fleet News Awards.
Commenting on Proace City, the judges remarked: “High specification levels which prioritise driver comfort and safety, plus an excellent warranty offering help to differentiate Proace City from its stablemates*.” They also praised the CV-focused retail network and said Toyota is providing “a superb front and back-end service for fleets.”
Where the larger Proace is concerned, the Fleet News awards team again identified the warranty cover, together with an extensive options list, as key factors helping the model break into the SME and corporate fleet sectors. “This high-quality van is giving Toyota the momentum to become a major fleet player in the van sector,” the judges noted.
Neil Broad, General Manager One Toyota Fleet Services, commented: “It is hugely rewarding to see the investment we are making in our Toyota Professional operations being recognised with these prestigious awards for Proace City and Proace. In terms of both our growing model range and the products and services we offer, we constantly focus on putting the customers’ needs first. That means building trust with quality, reliability and durability, and providing peace of mind with an exceptional warranty package and a responsive and supportive network.”
Proace City, Proace and all other Toyota models – light commercial and passenger vehicles alike – qualify for warranty cover for up to 10 years or 100,000 miles – whichever comes first. This comprises an initial three-year manufacturer warranty, followed by up to a further seven years of service-activated warranty. For the first three years of the car’s life, owners can have it serviced at a place of their choice. When the new car warranty period expires, they can then benefit from an additional 12 months (or 10,000 miles) warranty when their vehicle has a qualifying service at an authorised Toyota workshop. The warranty is provided at no extra cost, up to a limit of 10 years/100,000 miles. Terms and conditions apply; full details are available at www.toyota.co.uk.
In common with all other Toyota Professional light commercial vehicles, new Proace City and Proace models also come with five years’ free roadside assistance.
