Toyota ups finance deals

TOYOTA Australia has stepped up its value campaign for Yaris and Corolla with a finance offer at 2.9 per cent for approved private buyers and certain ABN holders.

The latest move comes two weeks after Toyota improved value across the Corolla and Yaris range by adding features and repositioning prices.

The four-year Toyota Finance Advantage (TFA) deal is available on Corolla Ascent and Yaris YR five-door hatches bought between now and January 31, next year.

Prices for these variants were reduced by $750 last month and now start at $20,990 for the Corolla Ascent manual and $15,690 for the Yaris YR 5-door manual.

As part of the value upgrade, Ascent hatches also gained full-length curtain and driver's knee airbags.

The TFA will deliver substantial interest savings compared with traditional finance.

The comparison rate of 2.9 per cent is less than one-quarter the rate charged by some motor-vehicle finance providers.

Consumers can lower their repayments further by making a final balloon payment of up to 40 per cent at the end of the four-year finance period.
