I don’t know how it is in Zurich but in Neuchâtel they either reimburse the difference if the new car is lower or send a bill for the difference if more tax is due.
I assume you’ve registered the new car on the same plates as the old ones.

I had the same some years ago for not too much money. They sent me a check for the difference.

Downsizing from an Audi to a Merc!
Now that's a new one for me.
