Toyota Powers The Rugby Football League

Toyota has scored a partnership with the Rugby Football League (RFL). The link-up sees Toyota become official car supplier to the sport’s governing body in the UK, and to England head coach Steve McNamara.

Toyota will provide the RFL with a fleet of 50 UK-built Auris hatchbacks, under the three-year agreement. The models will be used mostly by performance and development staff, and are set to cover a combined distance of more than a million miles per year.

Speaking of the partnership, RFL Commercial Director, James Mercer, said“I am delighted to welcome Toyota, one of the biggest names in the motor industry, as our latest partner. To link up with such an established brand is a real coup and I look forward to working closely with them throughout the coming three years.”

Toyota and Lexus Fleet Services’ National Sales Manger, Stuart Ferma, said:” We are proud to be the vehicle supply partner for the Rugby Football League and are delighted that they have chosen the British-built Auris. The RFL are supporting British workers with their choice of car and we look forward to working with them in the future.”

The British-built Auris is the only car in the compact hatchback, or ‘C’ segment, to offer buyers a choice of petrol, diesel and full hybrid powertrains. The line-up will grow in July with the launch of the Auris Touring Sports, a stylish compact estate which will start at £15,595 for the 1.33 VVT-i petrol in Active spec. Hybrid models start at £21,095.
