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 1st January 2010. 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 2009, they will also be protected against a scheduled 1st December 2009 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, a Toyota Aygo Blue five-door manual model ordered before 1st December 2009 and registered before 31st December 2009 would save a customer more than £500 compared to buying the car after 1st January 2010 next year. Acting now could also save more than £1,000 on the OTR price of a British-built five-door Toyota Auris 1.6 Valvematic and almost £400 on that of a new Toyota Yaris 1.33 VVT-i hatchback.
