How is the price of Luxury Car here

I once owned a Bim X5 in US.
But when I moved to Sydney, I have to switch to Corolla.

The price of luxury car in Australia is too high..(Cayenne 3.0TDI from around
150K AUD and audi A8 from 200k AUD).

Really miss the cheap car price in US

my question, how is the luxury car price in Swiss? (X5, Cayenne..And i prefer diesel.. )
And if I purchase the car from US and import here. the duty tax will apply? and how is the rate of duty tax?

Yes, but what is the price of chocolat? How big are they?

Honestly OP, you have to understand that your question is way to general. How is the price of luxury cars? Expensive!

You can look on internet for cars brand to give you an idea....

Re: How is the price of Luxury Car here

Given the number of hausfraus I see driving around in Porsches, I'm starting to wonder if I missed out on the discount voucher with my entry visa....

But, to answer the question. Nothing is cheap here. If you though they were expensive in AUS, your eyes will probably pop out of their sockets. Don't forget to budget for the traffic cam tickets, too, since doing 30kph is a challenge for one of those.

Actually, where was a thread some weeks ago where people concluded that high-end cars are actually priced competitively here.

One can certainly import cars from the US (or Germany, for less hassle).

The parking spaces in shopping-centers are all made for compact-cars, though.

As to the car price, I think in Australia it is way more expensive.
(As I check on line, you can get a well-equipped AUDI A8 3.0TDI at around 100-110K CHF, from http://www.autoscout24.ch/AS24Web/De...startpage=true, but I don't know if it is already tax-included. )

Additionally, the income-tax in Aus is much higher than Schweiz.
