What used Toyota MR2 sports will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Toyota MR2 sports?

For a great-looking open-top roadster, the MR2 is easy on the wallet, thanks to its use of an engine that's common to several other models. Toyota's franchised dealers' labour charges are generally higher than those for Mazda dealers', but the MR2 is unlikely to need anything other than routine service work, so this is not such a concern.

The MR2 delivers strong performance but also good economy and you can expect a combined consumption of 38.2mpg. It won't munch through tyres as quickly as many other cars with similar performance, either.

Insurance is also reasonable as the MR2 sits in group 13, which is the same as a Mazda MX-5 and less than a Mini Cooper S.
