Toyota announces UK scrappage scheme with trade-in savings up to £4k
Motorists with any vehicle older than seven years can receive up to £4,000 towards a new Toyota
Toyota has become the latest manufacturer to establish a scrappage scheme in the UK, offering savings up to £4,000 to drivers who trade-in their old car.
Running from 1 September until the end of the year, the scheme is open to any vehicle more than seven years old which has been owned by the current owner for more than six months.
In return, Toyota is offering at least £1,000 towards new models like the CH-R, and £2,000 on cars like the Prius and Hilux. Those who opt for larger vehicles like the RAV4 can enjoy savings up to £3,500, while anyone who opts for the latest Land Cruiser will be handed a £4,000 discount.
All vehicles exchanged will be scrapped and processed at authorized treatment facilities run by Autogreen.

“Our world-leading petrol-electric hybrids will be an ideal choice, helping make a genuine contribution to protecting air quality – a crucial concern for today’s customers.
