Dealer trade in vs private sale


I'm in the process of buying a new car and had very much wanted to avoid the hassle of selling my current car privately by doing a part-exchange trade in. However, the dealer is offering me only 5k, and I would like to get an idea of how much more I might *realistically* expect to get from a private sale.

Eurotax valuation is:
Achat/Reprise:CHF 7'757.-
Vente:CHF 10'133 -

The same make/model (Volvo C30) with similar registration date / milage is advertised on autoscout ranging from 9k to 15k.

The car had an expertise 5 months ago and is in good condition.

I'd appreciate any feedback from those familiar with the car market here: is the dealer's offer unreasonably low? Should I to expect to get anywhere near the autoscout advertised prices (which look like mostly sales from garages rather than private individuals) through private sale?
