9 Great New Toyotas Under $30,000 for 2019

Toyota offers a variety of efficient, affordable sedans, hatchbacks and SUVs. From the venerable Corolla to the RAV4 to the efficient Prius, there are a variety of Toyotas out there for all kinds of different needs. Here we’ll list nine new Toyotas you can get for under $30,000. Keep in mind that Toyota offers its Toyota Safety Sense suite of driver assistance features as standard across most of its model range, meaning that all but one of the vehicles on this list come with the latest in active safety tech regardless of the trim level you choose.

2019 Toyota Camry

2019 Toyota Camry

Toyota gave the Camry some new-found style when it fully redesigned it for the 2018 model year, and the modern Camry comes with a hint of aggression not found on past generations. Three powertrains are offered — an economical 4-cylinder, an efficient hybrid 4-cylinder capable of returning up to 52 miles per gallon and a potent V6 that puts out 301 horsepower.

For $30,000, buyers are looking at a 4-cylinder 2019 Camry SE with 18-in wheels, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, automatic climate control and Apple CarPlay. With a price of just $26,730, this leaves room for options like blind spot monitoring, a sunroof, an upgraded audio system and an integrated wireless charging pad. Find a Toyota Camry for sale

2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback

2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback

In designing the new Corolla Hatchback, Toyota opted to inject it with some attitude, making it sporty, aggressive and even kind of fun to drive. Offered in two trim levels — SE and XSE — the Corolla Hatchback has a starting price of just around $21,000 and reaches just $24,445 when fully-loaded. Under the hood is a basic 4-cylinder engine making a reasonable 168 hp. Transmission options are a continuously variable transmission (CVT) or a smooth-shifting 6-speed manual with a unique rev-matching feature, which makes it a breeze to drive, even for beginners. Opt for one in the new Blue Flame color and you’ve got one of the sportiest-looking new Toyotas to come out in years, and for not a lot of money. Find a Toyota Corolla Hatchback for sale

2020 Toyota Corolla Hybrid

2020 Toyota Corolla Hybrid

Toyota has fully redesigned the Corolla sedan for the coming 2020 model year and has introduced for the first time ever a hybrid version. A little more under-the-radar than the Prius, the Corolla Hybrid is great for anyone wanting efficiency but maybe not wanting to wear their environmental consciousness on their sleeve. The Corolla Hybrid returns 53 mpg in the city and 52 mpg on the highway — right on par with the Prius. One trim level is offered and no extra options are available, meaning that every 2020 Corolla Hybrid you come across will offer features like LED headlights and taillights, an 8-in touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and a 7-in screen located in the gauge cluster. The new Corolla Hybrid comes in at well under $30,000, with an MSRP of just $23,880, including destination charges. Find a Toyota Corolla Hybrid for sale

2019 Toyota RAV4

2019 Toyota RAV4

The best-selling car or SUV in America last year, the RAV4 is all new for 2019. Buyers looking to find a new RAV4 for under $30,000 have a few different options. If you’re OK with basic front-wheel drive (FWD), look to an XLE Premium model, which technically comes in at $30,745, but offers desirable features like 19-in wheels, fog lights, a dual-zone automatic climate control system and faux-leather seats. Alternatively, if you need all-wheel drive (AWD), look to a simple XLE model, which still comes with things like fog lights and Toyota Safety Sense, which is standard across the RAV4 range. A RAV4 XLE with AWD carries an MSRP of $30,340. For just $405 more you can opt for the hybrid powertrain, which should pay for itself pretty quickly at the pump given that it returns an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-rated 41 mpg city/38 mpg hwy. Find a Toyota RAV4 for sale

2019 Toyota C-HR

2019 Toyota C-HR

The C-HR is Toyota’s subcompact crossover. Despite its somewhat rugged looks, the C-HR is only available with FWD — no AWD option is offered. Power comes from a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder making only 144 hp and paired with a CVT. For less than $30k, buyers can afford a loaded C-HR Limited which comes with fog lights, heated seats, Apple CarPlay and blind spot monitoring among other things for $27,295. Find a Toyota C-HR for sale

2019 Toyota Prius

2019 Toyota Prius

The venerable Prius soldiers on as one of the longest running, most trusted hybrid vehicles on sale. Offering 54 mpg city/50 mpg hwy, the Prius is all about efficiency. Additionally, its large hatchback design allows it to swallow more cargo than you might expect. In a first for 2019, the Prius is also available with optional AWD on its middle LE and XLE trims. The system kicks in when the vehicle senses slippage and is great for anyone living in a cold weather climate that sees a lot of snow. For $30,000, buyers should look to an AWD-equipped Prius XLE, which costs $29,750 when factoring in delivery costs, and comes with amenities like a heated tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, rain-sensing windshield wipers, fog lights, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, blind spot monitoring and parking assist. Find a Toyota Prius for sale

2019 Toyota Prius Prime

2019 Toyota Prius Prime

While the basic Prius relies primarily on a combustion engine to propel it down the road, the Prius Prime adds a plug-in component, and when fully charged, can travel up to 25 miles on electric power only, making it a great option for anyone with a short daily commute. Toyota has taken measures to differentiate the Prius Prime from the regular Prius as well, adding unique front and rear fascias, along with an available 11.6-in center infotainment screen. In its entry-level Plus trim, the Prius Prime has a starting price of $28,280 and reaches $34,450 in fully loaded form. A middle-of-the-pack Premium model comes in at $29,980, meaning that you can get a Prius Prime with the 11.6-in screen, wireless charging, an 8-way power adjustable driver’s seat and a passive-entry smart key for under $30,000, not to mention the heated seats, LED headlights and navigation system that come standard. Find a Toyota Prius Prime for sale

2019 Toyota 86

2019 Toyota 86

The 86 is Toyota’s lightweight, compact, rear-wheel drive (RWD) sports car. Counting the Mazda Miata as its main competitor, the 86 was codeveloped with Subaru, which offers its own version of the 86, known as the BRZ. Also worth noting is that the 86 was sold as a Scion for the first few years of its existence, until Toyota opted to wind down its Scion brand at the end of the 2016 model year. Nonetheless, the 86 offers a good balance of handling and drivability. With a Subaru-designed naturally-aspirated 2.0-liter boxer 4-cylinder under the hood making around 200 hp, the 86 is not a powerful car, but it’s a great option for anyone who enjoys carving up a canyon road on a Sunday afternoon. Buyers looking to spend $30,000 on a Toyota 86 should look to a GT model, which offers fog lights, a rear wing, heated seats, suede accents and a programmable rev indicator. An 86 GT comes in at $28,785 with a 6-speed manual transmission. Keep in mind that the 86 is one of the few vehicles in Toyota’s lineup that is unavailable with Toyota’s suite of active safety features. Find a Toyota 86 for sale

2019 Toyota Tacoma

2019 Toyota Tacoma

With the popularity of luxury trims and high-end off-road models, it may seem like there just aren’t any affordable trucks left, but rest assured that you can still get a Toyota Tacoma for under $30,000. Keep in mind though that your options are limited to the basic SR model with either the under-powered 4-cylinder engine and 4-wheel drive (4WD), or the V6 and 2-wheel drive (2WD), either of which comes in at just under $29,000. The Tacoma SR can be thought of as a work truck, although its list of standard equipment is actually kind of impressive, with Toyota Safety Sense, three USB ports, a sliding rear window and the Tacoma’s clever deck rail system all included. Find a Toyota Tacoma for sale
