Toyota has extended its scrappage scheme AGAIN

You can save £2,500 off the cost of a Toyota Yaris or £2,000 off a Toyota Aygo when you trade in your old motor for scrapping.

Toyota Aygo x-trend

Toyota has extended its scrappage scheme – again – meaning you have until the end of June to save up to £2,500 off the price of a new car.

Scrappage is designed to encourage owners of older cars to trade them in for cleaner models by offering chunky discounts off the list price. In this case, Toyota is offered £2,000 off the cost of an Aygo and £2,500 off a Yaris.

Curiously, the offer isn’t available on the Yaris Hybrid, the cleanest model in the Yaris range…

The offer applies to owners of a car registered up to and including 30 June 2011, but they must have owned the car for at least six months.

As an example, the Aygo X-trend costs £10,965 after the scrappage discount and is available on 0 percent finance for £151.10 a month over 42 months after no deposit. The X-trend features 15-inch alloy wheels, smartphone integration, a seven-inch touchscreen, DAB, reversing camera, automatic air conditioning and automatic headlights.

Toyota Yaris Icon Trend

Meanwhile, the mid-range Yaris Icon Trend costs £14,120 after the discount, or £211.59 spread over 42 months after no deposit. This model features 15-inch alloys, Toyota Safety Sense, a seven-inch infotainment system, reversing camera, 4.2-inch multi-information display and rear parking sensors.

You have until 30 June 2019 to take advantage of the Toyota scrappage scheme, by which time the firm may have decided to extend it… again.
