What used Toyota Avensis saloon will I get for my budget?
How much does it cost to run a Toyota Avensis saloon?
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, too. Most models sit between groups 7 and 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.
There are so many used examples around, both privately and in the trade, you should be able to get a cracking deal. So, if you don't like the look of one, wait for a nicer car to come along.
