Toyota boasts a strong line-up of aftersales support that includes a competitive warranty and simple servicing plans; this, paired with the Yaris' likely reliability and relatively low CO2 emissions (compared to its non-electrified rivals) mean it could prove cheap to run despite its punchy list prices.

Toyota Yaris Hybrid insurance group

The latest Yaris Hybrid falls into insurance groups 13-14, a few higher than its predecessor, which was rated in group 8. The Icon is in group 13, all other grades are in group 14.

Warranty

Previously, the Yaris was covered by a five-year/100,000-mile warranty, while its hybrid battery benefited from an additional year or 10,000 miles of cover, which can be renewed up to the 15th anniversary of the car's registration. Roadside assistance can be added for less than £10 per month.

June 2021 saw Toyota introduce an extension to its warranty offering, called 'Toyota Relax'. This means you can continue extending your Toyota's warranty cover up to 10 years or 100,000 miles, by getting it serviced on time at an official Toyota dealer each year.

Servicing

Exact service intervals have not been announced but Toyota offers a number of service plans to spread the cost. A hybrid-specific service – which costs the same as for a non-electrified model – is offered, and is a requirement to keep the aforementioned battery cover rolling over. Toyota service plans start at £15 per month.

Road tax

As a sub-£40,000 hybrid car, the Yaris is taxed at a rate of £155 a year. Company-car users benefit from a 23% BiK (Benefit-in-Kind) tax rate, which equates to just shy of £1,000 a year for 20% taxpayers – or £2,000 for 40% payers – on the entry-level Icon model.
