See the discussion here for the Granvia's battery specification:
http://www.toyota-granvia.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=825&p=1803

My battery had been weakening for years (it was at least 15 years old), so since we were off sightseeing for a week last month, we decided to replace it with a new Varta G7. I looked at two suppliers:
JustCarBatteries (http://www.justcarbatteries.co.uk/varta-blue-dynamic-335-battery-g7.html) at £72.20 incl delivery, but since they didn't have it in stock and I couldn't get it delivered for at least a week, I went to Tayna (https://www.tayna.co.uk/G7-Varta-Blue-Dynamic-Car-Battery-595404083-249-335-P3215.html) at £88.95 + £8.95 for 24/48 delivery (ordered on a Friday; delivered on the Monday). Everything went smoothly.

I have a 95 amp/hr battery in mine

Its' a GM (Vauxhall) part and is a little bigger physically (I had to modify the plastic base) but spins the motor very swiftly - cost about £90 - £100 from any Vauxhall main dealer
