March is set to be a big month for taxi operators with Toyota, thanks to a fantastic deal on offer with Cab Direct for the celebrated Avensis.
Taxi trade specialists Cab Direct have bucked the trend yet again by defying car price increases and announcing that their ground-breaking Avensis price of just £9,995 plus VAT will be frozen throughout March 09. What’s more, you can even claim free metallic paint on orders placed during March.
For a supposedly ‘entry-level’ product the specification level on the T2 Avensis is magnificent. From the responsive 126 bhp D-4D diesel power plant to the smooth, 6-speed gearbox there’s no compromise about this superb taxi workhorse. Little wonder this model of reliability has proved such a long-lasting favourite with cabbies worldwide.
All equipment systems on the latest Avensis have been further enhanced to give you an instant upgrade. Look out for colour-keyed bumpers, door handles and wing mirrors with eye-catching indicator lights.
The large boot, combined with a 60-40 folding rear seats, makes for optimum flexibility – essential as a taxi when it comes to loading customer’s baggage.
Inside, smart but hard-wearing grey fabric trim adds to the quality feel. And with plenty of after-dark shifts ahead of you, Toyota’s superb combi-meter ensures instrumentation is easy to see, especially at night.
For the summer months the reliable air conditioning unit will be a godsend for cabbies. You’ll also enjoy the superb sound quality of the 8-speaker CD/radio system. Steering-wheel mounted audio-controls, plus auto-sound leveler to automatically adjust volume level in keeping with your engine speed, add to the feeling that Toyota have thought of everything to make your life as a cabbie easier.
Commenting on the new Avensis T2 taxi deal Toyota’s Tony Miller said: “The Avensis has built a well-deserved reputation for combining quality and durability so it comes as no surprise that the car is proving so popular with the hard-working taxi trade.
“Cab Direct are great partners to work with and we know they’re committed to looking after their customers so I can only see this relationship with the taxi industry continuing to grow.”
