Good Grief Charlie Brown – how different and varied are prices on new cars and trade-ins?
A local couple, Jean and Bill asked me to obtain some pricing on a new car recently with a trade-in. They were wanting an MY20 Kia Cerato Sport Plus Hatch with a 2.0-litre engine and auto transmission. Their preferred colour was Silky Silver and they wanted to include carpet mats, a rear cargo tray and window tinting.
The new car prices for Kia are very competitive at the moment and this certainly applies to the Cerato. I went to the market and here’s what I was able to achieve.
Using Kia’s online pricing, if you simply walked into a Kia dealer, you’d be paying $28,568 drive away (in Qld) plus another $700 for the accessories for a total of $29,268.
Using the buying power of Car Business, Jean and Bill were able to achieve a great changeover price.
Offer New Vehicle Trade-In Change Over
Offer 1 $28,317 $5000 $23,317
Offer 2 $27,130 $7000 $20,130
Offer 3 $28,420 $6000 $22,420
Offer 4 $27,823 $5700 $22,123
Offer 5 $27,930 $7000 $20,930
Offer 6 $28,081 $6500 $21,581
Offer 7 $29,590 $6000 $23,590
So the best changeover offer I received for Jean and Bill was $20,130 and that was a massive $3,187 better than the highest changeover and $800 lower than the next best price.
