Toyota price promise helps motorists avoid VAT and list price increases

On-the-road car prices are set to rise from the beginning of 2010 as the UK’s rate of VAT returns to 17.5 per cent on 1 January. Canny Toyota buyers can avoid taking a tax hit, however, if their new car is ordered and registered before the end of December.

And if their order is placed before the end of November, they will also be protected against a scheduled 1 December list price increase on certain Toyota models, even if their car is not registered until later in the month.

Combined with the opportunity to save at least £2,000 on new car prices through the Scrappage scheme, Toyota’s offer makes this autumn an especially attractive time to consider a new car purchase. More and more motorists are turning to Toyota, appreciating the essential quality, durability and reliability of its all-new model range at a time when running costs as well as purchase prices are prime considerations

As an example, an Aygo Blue five-door manual model ordered before 1 December and registered before 31 December would save a customer more than £500 compared to buying the car after 1 January next year. Acting now could also save more than £1,000 on the OTR price of a British-built five-door Auris 1.6 Valvematic and almost £400 on that of a new Yaris 1.33 VVT-i hatchback.
