Toyota Nigeria unveils new mini subcompact SUV

Toyota Nigeria Limited (TNL) has unveiled the Toyota Starlet mini subcompact sport utility vehicle in Lagos.

The Managing Director, TNL, Kunke Adeojo, who was represented by the General Manager, Corporate Services, Bunmi Onafowokan, said the vehicle launch was the brainchild of a partnership between Toyota and Suzuki in 2019.

He said, “The Starlet is our response to the yearnings of our customers that have over the years demanded an entry vehicle.

“It’s an elegant vehicle imbued with the quality, durability, reliability and style that the Toyota brand stands for.

“The vehicle, in its own right, is a compact mini SUV and it comes with 150,000km or a five-year warranty, whichever comes first.”

There are three variants of the 1.4-litre engine to cater to the preferences and pockets of the target segment which are the entry grade, the middle grade and the high grade.

The MD said, “In a few months’ time, we will commission our world-class certified service centre at Isolo. This facility has a body and paint section, a workshop and a parts section among other services available.

“With all sense of responsibility, I wish to note that this centre is second to none in Nigeria when compared on the pedestal of equipment, highly trained manpower and exceptional service delivery.

“Toyota Limited will not only continue to invest in the Nigerian automobile industry, but also align with the aspirations of the Nigerian government to revolutionise the local industry.”

Adeojo promised the company’s customers unrivalled service delivery and performance. He expressed gratitude to them for sustaining the company.
