THE Toyota Yaris has been ranked as the most reliable used car in the latest Warrantywise's annual reliability index.

Warrantywise, the UK's leading used car warranty provider, says the Yaris, now in its fourth generation having first been released in 1999, secured the top spot with minimal repair costs and maximum reliability, scoring 89.0/100.

Using data from 2020 - 2023 for the 2024 report the Yaris had an average repair request amount of £604.50.

Toyota models appear four times in the top ten league table, as the Auris, Aygo and Hilux all feature within the most reliable models which Warrantywise says further establishes the Japanese car manufacturer as a company renowned for its build quality, engineering reliability, and durability.

In the latest index the top ten is a diverse mix of models, with the Suzuki Swift coming second with a score of 87.8/100, and the Mazda Mazda2 and Toyota Auris securing joint third spot with an overall score of 85.9/100.

Toyota was listed again for joint fifth as the Aygo and the Hilux tie with a score of 85.3/100.

The Kia Cee'd with a 84.6/100 score was seventh and the Honda CR-V and Peugeot 107 came in joint eighth with an overall score of 83.4/100.

Finally, the Kia Rio was tenth with a score of 82.1/100.

Lawrence Whittaker, chief executive of Warrantywise said: "At Warrantywise, we are dedicated to providing our consumers with valuable insights about their vehicles. We recognise the importance of making wise choices, particularly in light of the rising cost of repair, and also that even the most reliable car is vulnerable to faults.

"Whether you buy a Toyota Yaris or a Honda CR-V, protecting your car with an extended warranty is one of the most reliable ways to confidently drive a used car without fear of big breakdown bills."
