Toyota Motor opened a test drive centre in Thailand this week, designed to give potential customers a chance to test drive its cars in various on- and off-road conditions.

The Toyota Driving Experience Park, located just outside Bangkok, is the first such facility outside Japan and is expected to attract up to 18,000 visitors per year. It cost THB100m (US$2.8m) to set up, excluding the cost of purchasing the 35,000 sq m plot of land.
