What should I be paying?
If you’re not tempted already, here’s something that’ll definitely grab you. Before the whole 'sold out' thing, you could have a GR Yaris for only £270 per month. Don’t know about you, but that sounds like a bargain to us. Yes, given a downpayment of £7,068, you could then pay £269 per month for 24 months and then have an option to buy for £16,740 at the end. On 0 per cent APR with an 8,000 mile annual limit, this meant it was as cheap to lease over two years as it was to buy outright in the first place. Please bring that back when orders re-open, Toyota.
If you wanted to spread out your payments more, you could. Toyota also offered a 1.9 per cent APR deal where the up front deposit was smaller (as low as £3,880), but the interim payments were stretched out over 42 months. You’d pay a bit more ultimately, but this still looked inordinately good value. Same applied if you wanted a Circuit Pack car. You could have one for only £30 a month more.
It's an affordable car to run as well. CO2 emissions of 186g/km mean you’re looking at first year tax of £870, but thereafter only £150. Toyota claims 34.3mpg, and we've found that 30mpg is easily achievable even with some enthusiastic driving. A 50-litre fuel tank means a near 300-mile cruising range too.
