Buy VW Polo more worthwhile or Jetta?

Recommended Posts

4th Gear

Hello all brothers, my car Lancer EX left 4 years 8 mths, wait for COE to drop or buy new car better? Thinking of VW Jetta or Polo....found out my EX 1.5 can trade in at $55k to dealer at Cars @ Expo...hope to clear my $15k loan and roll over to my new car and hopefully pay less than $1k per mth for instalment. Jetta heard $1.2 k per mth...very tight! Any advice? Both cars got any issue? Thks for feedback!

Dealer's word...unless they put it on black & white, if not, only listen with a pinch of salt. Their pattern can be more dan badminton. They can tell you when you meet them again that coe price has drop and slash the 55K to dunno how many K. So you gotto anticipate such tactics.

 

VW marketing should get an award. Subaru should call them shifu and not do the ah beng ad on radio.

I must admit the Jetta seems like a good buy. I went to the Car Expo and sat inside and honestly am quite impressed with the car interior and boot space. Not to mention the price attractive too.

Still got outstanding loan of 15k.

 

Trade in value is 55k.

 

It means that you likely need to fork out 15k cash for downpayment.

 

Are you sure you can afford it?

$11k annual dep for a bead and butter 1.4l car is ridiculous. Not decent.

lol sorry bro, I never bother about depreciation as I'm the kind who will try to drive the car up to 10 years.

Between Jetta and Polo I guess I would pick Jetta. More space and equipment I think...

Polo and Jetta very different leh. Polo quite small, so changing from your Lancer EX is like 'downgrade'.

 

Jetta probably more sensible for you, IMHO.
