Toyota Yaris second in the value chart

TOYOTA'S new Yaris city car is the second most economical car to run, behind the Perodua Nippa, according to CAP Motor Research's Top 40 value-for-money chart. In No.1 spot is the five-door Nippa EX on 13.5 pence per mile to run over three years/ 60,000 miles, followed by the three-door Yaris 1.0 16v VVTi S (13.6ppm) and the three-door SEAT Arosa 1.0 MPi (14.1ppm). The Nippa, despite large depreciation, has the lowest ownership costs due to its £4,999 list price compared to the Yaris's £7,320.

Mark Norman, editor of CAP Monitor - Future Residual Values, said: 'It is testimony to the future desirability of the Yaris as a used car that its new cost premium over the Nippa of £2,321 is more than made up for by its future retained value 44% at three years/60,000 miles, against 28%.' Daihatsu has the most Top 40 places with six cars.
