What used Toyota Avensis estate will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Toyota Avensis estate?

Long major service intervals will help keep the bills down and even when your Avensis does go in for some TLC, it won't cost as much as many cars in the class to repair. Parts are cheap and readily available.

Insurance costs are among the best in the class. Most models sit in groups 7 to 9 and even the range-topping 2.0-litre petrol SR model sits in group 10. Fuel bills won't cost you a fortune, either. The 1.8-litre petrol will return between 36-38mpg, which is about average for the class.

As for private buyers, because there are so many used examples around, both privately and in the trade, you should be able to secure a very good price.
