I've been contemplating trading in my 2017 1.2T for a new 2.0 GR Sport. Printed out some prices a few weeks ago. Been back on the configurator again yesterday, and the spec I want is now £285 more.

Has anybody else noticed this.

Hoping to order tomorrow !!

Is that all? Some models have gone up considerably more

A £285 price rise can be lost in the figures if your trading in & the sales person wants to do a deal. 

Going to the dealers tomorrow, to see what they can do.

To be honest a £285 price rise on a £33K vehicle is less than a 1% rise.

Why not see whether your dealer is taking part in the following offer, which will more than compensate for the price rise -

Tried it the other day at Tesco over a 5p rise on a can of baked beans….. they told me to clear off!  😁

If you buy via Carwow or Drive the Deal, you will save a small fortune. You still collect via a dealer, and obtain Toyotas finance deals, warranty etc. you just cut a chunk of the dealer margin out 

Well worth checking them out!

Just looked, about a £3000 saving for the spec. I'm looking at. Can't see my local dealer matching that. And this dealer is only 60 mile away.

I would try if they match the carwow offer. My local dealer almost matched it, so I ordered locally to save me a 200 miles return journey to Hull in January/February. The dealer in Hull would have delivered the car for free, but I prefer to pick up a new car in person if possible 😊

My local dealer is 28 mile round trip, Carwow dealer about 140 mile round trip, but offering full tank if picked up in person. Will give the local dealer a chance to match though.

I bought mine through Carwow, glad the discounts are still big!

I ordered via Carwow. The Hull dealer offered best price but realized they could not deliver. My local dealer could not match the price but while quoting told me about the £285 increase which I could not find at that time on Toyota's website. I went with another nearby dealer who will deliver and was like £60 more than the Hull dealer.

Yes, it really depends. Both my nearby dealers (both part of a bigger group) turned out to be not as competitive as my local dealer (not part of a bigger group). In any case, websites like Carwow have really shaken up the market for new cars (and the likes of Motorway have done the same for the used car market, of course).

    • Toyota statement on Russian local manufacturing and vehicle imports
      Like everyone around the world, Toyota is watching the ongoing developments in Ukraine with great concern for the safety of people of Ukraine and hopes for a safe return to peace as soon as possible

      As a company with operations in Ukraine and Russia, our priority in dealing with this crisis is to ensure the safety of all our team members, retailer staff, and supply chain partners.

      We are also monitoring global developments and will make necessary decisions as required.

      The business status of Toyota’s European operations is as follows:

      Toyota Ukraine has stopped all activities as of 24 February (Toyota Ukraine = sales and after sales operations; 37 retail locations; distributor owned by Sumitomo Corp.)

      Toyota Motor Russia will stop production at its St-Petersburg plant from 4 March and has stopped imports of vehicles, until further notice, due to supply chain disruptions (Toyota Russia = sales and after sales operations; 168 retail locations; and one plant in St Petersburg manufacturing RAV4 and Camry models for the Russian market with exports to Belarus, Kazakhstan and Armenia)

      Other manufacturing and sales operations in the rest of Europe are not impacted.

      Toyota affiliates in countries bordering Ukraine have already taken concrete actions to support Ukrainian employees and their families, including facilitating the transfer of close family members from Ukraine to other destinations with the provision of accommodation, food, and other support to meet their needs. Further humanitarian support is being planned and will be announced in due course.
