Skoda Karoq

Recommended Posts

Karoq Ambition equipment list is disappointingly poor. No leather seats, LED headlights and useful safety features. Those on a budget should really consider jap/Korea brands that offer better specs and value.

 

Meanwhile Karoq Style is overpriced given the wide range of better value suvs in the market currently. Not for discerning buyers.

 

Skoda did well with its Kodiaq 1.4. But I think they got it all wrong with the overall package of Karoq with the current COE environment in mind.

When Skoda was reintroduced here again after absence of many years, their selling point was full or generously specced car at fair price which continued even for the recently launched Kodiaq 1.4l but seems they now moving away from this after a few mths of consolidation?

 

A pity if this is indeed the case cos I know of some Skoda skeptics who embraced the brand due to the high specs offered.

The OMV of Karoq Style is $4k more than Ambition. So buyers are essentially paying $10k more for the Style for $4k worth of equipment.

Interesting thing is that the Karoq Ambition specs are really similar or slightly better than the ever popular Nissan Qashqai, while the price is similar as well... yet everyone is buying a Qashqai out there... =P

Tax component on the additional OMV is not so high. U can read up on LTA’s website and work out the AD’s profits yourself. :)

ARF for the difference is $5.6k?

 

If that the case the additional profit is abt $500?

 

Pls advise. Thanks

But skoda singapore need to pay $4k more for the car right?

 

So $4k plus ARF of 5k is 9k.

 

10k minus 9k is equal 1k addictional profit right?

 

Sorry huh new to this

How u know Skoda Singapore pays $4k more for the car? All these info not available to public one. If it bothers you, try asking an insider from Skoda about their margins.

In the past few AD, they are small fly. Now is VW. Just like Past Mazda AD sell their car cheaper. After change to The new Conti car seller AD, price is not as attractive as before.

 

To add on, this car omv is 23/24k and 27/28k respectively, how cheap can they sell?

Current price too ex. I feel the style should sell 10k cheaper. For this price, I guess seat ateca seems a better buy

Before the arrival of this AD, all superb come with premium speaker. Now they divided into few trim and only the L&K trim come with it. Why?

If sell cheap how to afford their new showcase/workshop in West wor!  [:p]

 

Anyway with a 10K different between the Ambitious and Style, this different is really not alot.. beside the agent need to have extra overhead in spares/training etc for a mere small profit.

Style trim is about 10k higher than Ambition in cost price (before profit)

 

 

 

Basic cost of ambition

 

22672(OMV) X 2.27 + 2672 X 0.4(Tier OMV tax) + 32000(COE)
= 84,534
 

 

Basic cost of Style

26324(OMV) X 2.27 + 6324 X 0.4(Tier OMV tax) + 32000(COE)
= 94,285
