The Car

With over 60k of mileage run up every year it is imperative that I have a reliable car.  This is why every 3 years the school car is changed to keep up the professional appearance it is so proud of.

December 2017 is where I introduce all my clients to the new Toyota Yaris Trend, colour to be decided, name to be decided let me know your ideas!

Now what can I say about Elsa my current car pictured above or I should be saying what could I not say, the list would be much shorter:

ABS with Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD) – ABS prevents the wheels from locking when braking; EBD optimizes the brake force on each wheel.  Together they help maintain controlHandbrake

Brake Assist (BA) detects when you attempt an emergency stop and applies extra brake pressure. This enables ABS to work to its full potential

Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) activates individual brakes and controls engine output to help prevent skidding when cornering on slippery surfaces.

Traction Control (TRC) automatically reduces engine power and controls brake force if you accelerate too hard. This helps to restore traction.

Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) airbags this model is fitted with seven airbags they include driver’s knee airbag, SRS airbags for both driver and passenger, side airbags for the front seats and SRS curtain shield airbags covering both the front and rear seat passengers.

A five-star rating is a fitting reflection of Toyota’s dedication to the safety and protection of drivers, passengers and pedestrians alike.
