ABSTRACT
A leading accident prevention organization has further endorsed the safety credentials of the Toyota Avensis automobile by taking delivery of a fleet of 40 new cars in 2004. The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) says it chose the new Avensis because of the car's performance in terms of reliability, quality, value for money and above all, its outstanding safety record. The fleet of Avensis vehicles will be used by RoSPA managers, safety consultants and driver training staff to help in their accident prevention and awareness work across Great Britain. Staff have already received vehicle familiarization instruction before being given the keys to their new cars, a form of training that RoSPA encourages all companies to offer. From a car company that considers passenger safety of utmost priority, it is not surprising that every aspect of the new Avensis was optimized for passenger security and protection. The list of impressive protective features of Avensis, it was the first car in its segment built with nine air bags as standard, including a new 18-liter knee airbag, prove that where safety is concerned, Toyota is a leader.
