Buying a car

Choosing a new car is exciting, but let’s face it, it can also be a tricky business. Whether you’re buying brand new or second hand, there are simply so many makes and models to choose from. 

Not only is the price of the car important to most of us, but we also need to think about the costs of keeping it on the road.

One of the things to consider when you think about these running costs, is the price of the car insurance you need for it.

Why a Toyota?

Toyota are famed for their meticulous approach to design, and they have developed a reputation for creative features intended to reduce the environmental effect on the planet. 

If you asked people to name a hybrid car, many would probably say the Toyota Prius. Did you know though, that Toyota actually released their first Prius car in Japan in 1997.

In addition to the Prius, their range of vehicles has something for everyone. From the town friendly models the Aygo, iQ and Yaris to the practical and refined Avensis. There is also the sporty Celica and the robust 4x4, the Landcruiser.

Toyota’s are built to last and the manufacturer claims that 80% of Toyotas sold 20 years ago are still on the road today. They also have a reputation for developing cars that run on a budget and hold their resale value.

What about the costs of insuring them?

Well, in line with other features, Toyotas hold their own when it comes to the costs of insurance.
