Toyota Model Comparisons

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post.

The Internet has become a great tool for people to see the real value of what they buy, particularly cars. Toyota recently came out with an all new "cost comparison" tool that analyzes costs of different vehicles over five years. 

Many car companies today do not have the best policies for customers, but Toyota really values its customers in a way that people have never experienced. In addition, their cars have been ranked higher than even some luxury models because of their sturdy construction, long-lasting engines and ingenious interior design. 

The cost comparison shows how the value of Toyota cars actually stays relatively even over a five-year period while other cars tend to depreciate. The tool is really easy-to-use as well. All you do is pick the Toyota that you want to compare, such as the Corolla to get a list of Toyota model comparisons. You can compare the model with a variety of other cars, including Hyandai or Chevrolet or Ford. You can click on each one to jump to the cost comparison. 

Ultimately, Toyota cars are priced at or near their actual value. While many car companies talk about low costs, they don't explain high interest rates and fees that go along with purchasing their cars. Toyota really strives to make their cars cost less and last longer for consumers. 

With higher fuel efficiency, better gas mileage, insurance and depreciation values, you can really see why more people buying Toyotas more than ever before.

Can I tell you how incredibly helpful this post is?!!! I think that we will move in a year and will be in the hunt for a car. I've lived in NYC for over 11 years and haven't had a car of my own. I'm clueless in this arena... I like the idea of a cost comparison tool!

Thanks, Monica! I like the idea of a comparison tool too. The more information the better when making such a big financial decision.

It is interesting to see the difference, can use it to your advantage too. Take it to another and beat them down lol but no matter who you go to you are going to get screwed in the end and not the fun way hahaha

I wish hubby would have known about the calculator when he made his car purchase. I'm next...but not for a little while still, to get a new car. I wish it was today. ;) 'Patience is a virtue' was never my favorite saying. :)

What a great post. We are getting ready to car shop, so this is so very timely!

Since we are in the midst of a search for an auto - this post could not be more timely.

Thanks for checking it out!

Hurrah, I'm glad you saw it before you went shopping!

I'm happy you found it while still searching (and not after)! :)

Thanks for this information! We've been trying to decide whether to get a new car in the near future, or try to wait longer. I think we've decided that it depends on whether I go back to work in the fall, or stay home and homeschool Elliott.

We are definitely considering Toyota for our next car, since my husband likes his little Tacoma so much, that we bought used last summer.

One of my friend's has a Corolla, and another has a Sequoia, they both love them.

I have never owned a Toyota, but I hear very good things about them. I will be in the market for a new car soon and will definitely have them on my test drive list!

I've had 3 different Toyotas over the years and I have been very happy with all of them.

I am so needing to trade mine in too, but I have to wait a bit more. Good luck w/your car shopping!

mail4rosey said...

That's what I always hear from people who have them! It's good to know.

This is great. Under the good, our vehicle is a Toyota, but its a Pontiac vibe. I do trust Toyotas more than other vehicles.
