Car Insurance: 'Small can be safe'

Tuesday, 02 December 2008

Some motorists believe in the event of an accident, as well as having a good car insurance policy, it is better to be driving a big vehicle.

However, Toyota has challenged this pre-conception.

The manufacturer stated its diminutive iQ offers "an unprecedented level of active and passive safety protection" for a vehicle of its size.

It claimed the model features a range of handling and braking systems which can help motorists avoid a collision and a subsequent motor insurance claim in the first place.

Toyota added the vehicle also includes a number of safety devices which will safeguard the occupants if an accident does occur.

It pointed out the model has nine airbags designed to complement the shape of the interior and provide 360-degree protection.

Meanwhile, Toyota recently announced it would be passing on the full 2.5 per cent VAT cut to its customers, which means motorists will be able to pick up the new iQ model from £9,295.
