Scrap Old, Drive New This Spring with Toyota’s Money-Saving Scrappage Scheme

4 April 2019

More than 12,000 motorists have made the switch to a new Toyota by taking advantage of a generous scrappage scheme to dispose of their old vehicle and gain big savings on a cleaner, showroom-fresh model.

Such has been the response to the offer, Toyota is extending it for a further three months, giving customers more time and more opportunities to save up to £2,500 on a brand new car.

For the coming quarter, the scheme focuses on the Aygo city car and petrol versions of the Yaris supermini with respective price tag savings of £2,000 and £2,500. Purchase is made even easier thanks to current finance offers for the Aygo x-trend and Yaris Icon Tech with nought per cent APR representative*.

In outline, the scrappage scheme enables owners of cars and small commercial vehicles – both petrol and diesel – registered up to and including 30 June 2011, to trade in their vehicle against a qualifying new Toyota Aygo or petrol-engined Yaris. Customers must have owned their vehicle for a minimum of six months. Other terms and conditions apply; full details are available at or from Toyota retailers.

All vehicles taken off the road through the Toyota scrappage scheme are processed at authorised treatment facilities managed by Autogreen. After the safe removal of all pollutants and the recovery of retrievable parts, shredding and recovery is handled by EMR. Together these processes meet the legal requirement of a minimum 95 per cent recycling by vehicle weight.

*Subject to status, available to over-18s. Indemnities may be required. Terms and conditions apply, for full details go to or . Toyota Financial services.
