What used Toyota Yaris Verso estate will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Toyota Yaris Verso estate?

Okay, so the Yaris Verso's styling means it isn't everyone's cup of tea, but owners love them. What's more, their rarity on the used market - compared with the standard Yaris - coupled with Toyota's legendary reliability means they hold their value very well. Expect to pay at least 50% of the new price for a three-year-old model.

The low-cost insurance is another reason for its desirability, with the diesel in group 5 and the petrol one category below. Fuel economy is excellent, too, with the 1.4 returning a very impressive 56mpg. Even the 1.3's figure is 44mpg, although the automatic gearbox brings it down to 40mpg. The bills shouldn't be too big at the garage, either. This is a straightforward car to look after and Toyota's parts aren't any more expensive than its rivals'.
