How economical is the Toyota Yaris diesel?

I'm looking to downsize my car, and am leaning towards a Toyota Yaris 1.4 diesel. I do a lot of miles, and am a single mum, so need something reliable, with cheap tax and good economy. Can you tell me roughly the mpg I can expect from an 08 model?

Hi Dawn,

Well, according to the official figures, a 2008 Yaris 1.4 D-4D should give you about 62mpg. But, it's a car you're probably going to have a deal of trouble tracking down as few will have been sold here in the first place because of the price premium over the 1.0 and 1.3 petrol versions. A 1.0 petrol Yaris won't be quite so economical on a long run, but the fact that it will be easier to find and cheaper to buy may well outweigh that.
