There are barely 15 days left until the end of the year 2022. For many, it will be good news, since it has been a year to forget in many respects. However, if what you want is buy a new car, you should not wait for 2023 if you are looking for a price that is as reasonable as possible. The brands extend their offers until the end of the year to meet their business goals. And therefore, it will be difficult for you to take home this urban hybrid crossover for the price on offer, 24,100 euros, which you currently have. TIC Tac.
The car in question is none other than the Toyota Yaris Cross. In its segment it is one of the most recommended full-hybrid alternatives, competing against cars like the Hyundai Kona Hybrid or the Renault Captur E-Tech Hybrid. The Toyota Yaris Cross It measures 4.18 meters, and is, therefore, a B-segment car. It has five doors, a very striking design, a spacious interior and a very large trunk with a capacity of 397 liters. At Diariomotor we have tested it and we believe it is one of the most balanced cars with the best value for money in the segment.
Its interior is finished with quality materials and is very pleasant.
But without a doubt, the main commercial argument of this urban crossover is its full-hybrid mechanics. With a combined power of 116 CV and an electric motor of 80 CV, this non-plug-in hybrid is a full-hybrid vehicle. It has the DGT ECO label and is capable of moving in electric mode without the support of its thermal engine. Approves a average consumption of only 4.5 l/100 km, a really low number. Toyota is the world’s leading manufacturer of hybrids and the reliability of its powertrains is out of the question.
Although a light hybrid is more affordable, the consumption of a full-hybrid is unbeatable, especially in an urban cycle, where it is easy to even reduce the consumption of the approved data. The finish that Toyota offers for 24,100 euros for the Yaris Cross – which has hardly become more expensive since its launch – is the Active Tech. It is the access finish, but it is really complete and has everything necessary to make our day to day with the car pleasant. It has 17″ wheels, dual climate control or reversing camera.
Its cash price is 25,350 euros, only 1,250 euros higher than the one offered.
Its infotainment equipment is a Toyota Touch 2 system with an 8-inch screen compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The instrumentation is not digital, but it has a large 7-inch color multifunction screen. In addition, it has adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assistant or traffic sign reader. The price of 24,100 euros implies financing the purchase of the car for four years through a multi-option product called Toyota Easy.
The entrance is 6,698 euros and the monthly fees are 185 euros. After four years, the last remaining installment would be 14,285 euros. At that moment we can decide to pay the last installment (or finance it), return the car to the brand, or exchange it for another car of the brand by starting a new financing process. The APR of the offer is 9.26% and the final price of the operation is very close to 30,000 euros. Therefore, we would be talking about a difference of almost 5,000 euros with respect to a traditional cash purchase.
