Will Toyota accept a diesel trade-in RAV4?

I usually buy a new car every three years, which means I'm due to trade in my two-year-old Toyota RAV4 diesel at the end of 2018. Will my diesel be accepted against a hybrid?

Hi Dan,

Yes, it absolutely will be. Diesel values have fallen in the UK, but much less so here, although there is a little ‘softening’ going on. However, if you’re buying another Toyota, there will be promotional activities around hybrid models (not least since Toyota recently announced that it’s going to stop making diesel-engined passenger cars) so I don’t think you’ll have any issues.
