What used Toyota Avensis saloon will I get for my budget?
Prices for high-mileage 1.6-litre diesel cars start at around £9000, but you can find others that have covered a more reasonable distance for between £9500 and £10,000. That’s also the point at which you’ll start to find examples of the Avensis with the petrol engine and automatic gearbox.
Cars with the larger, more powerful 2.0-litre diesel engine will set you back at least £11,500. If you’re going for the very last examples from 2018, be prepared to pay around £16,000 for one with less than 10,000 miles on the clock. Mind you, that’s still a considerable amount off the near-£25,000 price that Toyota was asking for a high-spec 2.0-litre diesel when new.

How much does it cost to run a Toyota Avensis saloon?
Both the 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre diesel models should be inexpensive to run, with official (NEDC) fuel economy figures of 67.3mpg and 62.8mpg, translating to annual road tax costs of £20 and £30. The petrol is much thirstier, at 46.3mpg, so it will cost £140 in road tax. However, any Avensis that was registered after 1 April 2017 will cost £140 per year, because it will be charged under the new system.
Toyota servicing isn’t the cheapest around and the Avensis isn’t yet old enough to qualify for discounted rates, so you’ll need to choose from either ‘Intermediate’ for £185, ‘Full’ for £335 or ‘Full plus’ for £395.
