You can already see the price check labels when you search and know which car you can buy below the market price.
Up to now you had to compare yourself. That took a long time and was tedious. The first price check in Switzerland frees you from that.
Our algorithm can calculate the market price of a car based on various criteria. To do this, we rely on reliable data from the Swiss Federal Roads Office (Auto-i-dat). This enables us to indicate whether an offer is rather cheap.
Please note that we cannot consider all criteria for the price check. Some dealers offer extras that justify a higher price.
The following criteria are taken into account:
Make, model and type
Gearbox & transmission
Which criteria do we not consider?
- Exterior condition
- Interior condition
- Special services of the dealer
- Additional guarantees of the dealer
- Advantages of the dealer
- Optional equipment and assistance systems*
*In some cases it is considered.
Very good value
The price is significantly (20% and more) below the current market value.
The price is slightly (12 - 20%) below the current market value.
The price corresponds to the current market value (up to +/- 12%).
Above market price
The price is (12% and more) above the current market value.
No price check
Unfortunately, there is not enough comparative data for this car.
How we calculate the market price - step by step.
Here in the example: a Golf 1.4 TSI Comfortline, it was newly sold for CHF 32'000.
The price check calculates the loss of value of the car over time. It is based on comparative values for the same model. The main factors are age and mileage. Body type, gearshift, transmission, drive and colour are included in the calculation and change the depreciation slightly.
This offer is over 12% above the market price. That's why the price check rates it as "Above the market price".
With this car you get 12 months free service and warranty as well as an additional sports equipment package. We could not take these extras into account in the price check. It is therefore worth contacting the dealer if you have any questions.
