Toyota after tremendous speculation has decided and launched two standards namely ABS and EBD in all its vehicles that will be manufactured for Indian roads. Apart from Platinum Etios and Etios Liva, the standard will be applicable in fleet vehicles too. This is an important step for safety measures by this giant manufacturer.
Flamboyant buyers want features more than safety measures due to which many lives have been endangered. In order to make driving safe and secure for all, Toyota took the step in the year 2014 of including two air bags across all its car models, people and safety authorities were more than happy about it. In fact it has been a mandate by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways to include ABS and EBD as standards for all the vehicles by the year 2018. It indicates that all vehicles should be manufactured with air bags.
With all the safety measures in check, Toyota has been considered as the safest manufacturer of cars in India. They include ELR seatbelt with 3 point in all the five seats. They have made sure to add pre-tentioners in the front seat coupled with limiters on force. Child seat mount will have ISOFEX to ensure safety for children. They believe in the concept that lives are precious and they cannot be compromised at the cost of features only. Safety is of utmost importance for Toyota and by bringing this to their cars, they have reached the height of reliability by the buyers in India.
No one wants an expensive that only has features at the cost of lives. Kudos to this initiative by Toyota.
