Volkswagen Arteon Costs $65,490 In Australia

The Volkswagen Arteon will be available in Australia this November and the price starts at $65,490 before fees. That's actually very expensive for the Arteon and puts it on the same level as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

I wonder why it is so much more there? That is almost double projected US pricing!

Glad i'm not paying that much to own one of these and being a German car that's not known for reliability and dependability, it just doesn't help. Maybe because of this the used car maker it hot in Austrialia.

People may as well go for the Mercedes if it's that expensive. Elsewhere, you're just paying around £34,305 or 40,304 USD if you directly convert it. Same seems to apply for New Zealand, perhaps even worse at $74,990.

Very nice break down and it gets even worse if you just look at leasing a nice brand new Mercedes which in that case can get you a lot. You just have to be willing to swap cars every few years. That to me is worth the trade off of the best tech.

Too bad import fees are so high in those countries, large untapped market that won't be able to afford inflated luxury car prices.

If there's a major recession as they're suggesting then we might see some car makers pull out to cut their losses short
Considering that its probably not a good time to buy a car in that part of the world.
