Toyota’s April New Car Incentives Remain Reasonable, Despite Japan Crisis

Despite production delays due to the Japan crisis, Toyota’s new car incentives in April are pretty attractive. Toyota is still offering 0 percent and low auto loan rates and discounted lease deals on several models in April. Complimentary maintenance comes standard on all new Toyota vehicles.

Toyota’s 0 percent auto loan rate is good up to five years on the Tundra, Matrix, Camry Hybrid and Camry in April. The Camry, Camry Hybrid and Tundra have $500 in bonus customer cash on top of the interest-free rate this month.

For four years, shoppers can buy the Venza interest-free. A three-year, 0 percent auto loan rate is available on the Corolla, Avalon, RAV4, Highlander, Sienna and Tacoma in April. Higher auto loan rates are available on select models for longer loan lengths.

Select Toyota vehicles available with the low auto loan rate deals also include a no payments for 90 days incentive. No down payment is required on most models.

2011 Toyota Prius

The fuel-efficient 2011 Toyota Prius’ lease price has been increased to $299 a month in April.

Toyota is offering 39-month auto lease deals on nine different vehicles in April, which is four less than last month. The Prius lease deal, which is only 36 months long, has gone up to $299 a month. It used to be available for $199 a month. It’s no surprise the recent surge in gas prices has caused Toyota to boost the lease payment on the fuel-efficient hybrid Prius.

Monthly lease payments on all Toyota lease deals this month range from $149 to $319, depending on the model, and you’ll need anywhere from $2,148 to $2,318 at lease signing.

The 2011 Camry LE still has its sign and drive lease deal in April. The Camry is $249 a month and has $500 in bonus customer cash available. The $500 can be used to lower the price of the car or shoppers can receive a check for the amount.

Toyota’s two-year complimentary maintenance program comes standard on all new Toyota vehicles in April. You’ll get a coupon book for all scheduled maintenance, which includes things like oil changes and tire rotations, but doesn’t cover things like brake pads and wiper blades.
