Toyota wants to put you behind the wheel of one of its fuel-saving, nay, planet-saving hybrids when the numberplates change to 212 in July, and is willing to knock as much as €3,000 off the cost of buying one.
Biggest selling brand
Already the best-selling brand in Ireland so far this year, Toyota is looking to copper-plate that success with its 212 offers. "With one in four new cars purchased this year being hybrid, there is a concerted move by Irish motorists towards cleaner, electrified motoring, and with Ireland's widest choice of hybrids across the vehicle segment spectrum, Toyota caters to every budget and style preference. Switching both mindset and car to a more sustainable outlook won't cost the world, with the upgrade from Yaris petrol to Yaris hybrid costing only €4 extra per week" said the company in a statement.
The discount offer is linked to Toyota's PCP finance packages, which kick off with a 2.9 per cent APR interest rate for the hugely popular Yaris Hybrid. Repayments on the cheapest Yaris Style Hybrid start from €145 per month.
If you fancy upgrading to a Corolla Hybrid, then prices start from €27,305, or a €190 per month repayment at 3.9 per cent APR and Toyota is throwing in either a €1,000 'finance contribution' or a €1,000 'trade-in-bonus' which are basically both knocking €1,000 off the asking price.
That's for the hatchback Corolla. If you want the four-door saloon version, then it's a €27,980 starting price, or €195 per month repayments, at 3.9 per cent interest, and with the same €1,000 discounts.
The C-HR crossover Hybrid has prices starting from €31,205 and now comes with a €1,750 finance contribution or trade-in booster of €1,500, and monthly repayments starting from €203 at 3.9 per cent APR.
The larger RAV4 Hybrid SUV can be had for €285 per month, on 4.9 per cent APR, with a starting price of €39,510. Toyota is offering a finance contribution of €1,500 on the RAV.
The Camry Hybrid saloon starts from €41,570 and comes with a €3,000 finance contribution or trade-in booster of €1,500, and monthly repayments of €271 at 4.9 per cent APR. Finally, the biggest Toyota - the Highlander Hybrid - has a starting price of €65,660, €462 per month repayments on 4.9 per cent APR, and a finance contribution of €2,500 or €2,500 trade-in booster.
