Toyota’s new ‘Toyota Starlet 2020’, with an aspirational theme that drives every driver and occupant to the highest level of exciting automobile experience, has become the new global star of automobiles.
This new car among Toyota’s numerous durable brands on the market offers motorists and car enthusiasts a feel of automobile experience pleasure.
The Toyota Starlet, which was unveilled recently on the forecourt of Toyota’s office in Kumasi, is a budget car with classic and unique profiles which appeal to all income earners; and like its models, the Starlet embraces Toyota’s legacy of quality, durability and reliability.
Powered by a 4 cylinder 1.4-litre engine, the Starlet operates on low fuel consumption with an automatic transmission.
The new Starlet is affordable to run and has great infotainment functionalities which include Toyota connects and Android auto. The instrument cluster is bright and easy to read, with on-centre Multi-information display and dual analogue gauges.
With a modern exterior design, spacious interior and enhanced specification levels, it is an automobile of choice in the current generation.
Mr. Takuya Kajiura, Managing Director of Toyota Ghana, addressing invited guests at the vehicle’s official outdooring indicated that given the confidence the company assigns to the Starlet model, Toyota is offering a package of 5 years or 150,000km manufacturer’s warranty, whichever comes first.
“If there was ever a time you should be looking for a dynamic, stylish and elegant but affordable vehicle with the comfort of a super-car, then your time is now; please look no further than the new Toyota Starlet,” he stressed.
2020 has been a very dramatic year for all industries including the automobile sector, according to Mr. Takuya Kajiura, and COVID-19 has reversed almost all the gains that were projected at beginning of the year.
In spite of this negative impact, Toyota Ghana has developed very innovative alternative approaches to their operations to keep customers’ transport needs at optimum levels, and Toyota is committed to sustaining the Toyota Philosophy of ‘Customer First’ despite the external business environment challenges the company is being confronted with.
Toyota’s commitment to continuous improvement as a principle of business operation is never compromised, and for this reason within the past five months Toyota has introduced two new products onto the Ghanaian market – that is, the small but agile Agya and the stylish new Corolla.
