Meet the Vantage Toyota Team in Knaresborough


General Sales Manager: Darren Binge

Darren, General Sales Manager at Toyota Knaresborough, has worked in the car industry for over 12 years and has worked for 6 different manufacturers which has allowed him to develop his knowledge and sales technique. He enjoys working for Toyota as he believes that they have a fantastic product range and a great team at Knaresborough who all have the Vantage ethos of 'A Passion to Please'.

As he's got older, Darren thinks his taste in cars has changed. 15 years ago, his Toyota of choice would have been the GT86 but now he thinks the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid is perfect for his lifestyle as it combines practicality for his kids but also has a smooth drive.

Darren used to play Rugby League and, when he was 11 years old, was fortunate enough to play at Wembley in the curtain raiser of the Challenge Cup Final in 1988 in front of 75000 people!
