Price drop on the 2018 CRV ? Yeah, right !!

Postby ramishrrr » October 27th, 2017, 7:03 am

Folks,
The new 2018 CRV has a 1498cc engine istead of 2000cc.
It means that instead of 35% Customs Duty on a 2000cc vehicle , ANSA motors will pay 25%.
The MVT will now be TT$7,495 before VAT instead of TT$22,387.
Of course after all these reductions, the VAT also will drop.
Now..........................will there be a drop in price ?
Peace.
RR.

That's a pretty decent price. I believe a fully equipped Rav4 can reach $400k and that last one I drove had a boring interior. The torque specs from that 1.5T though.. I like them!

The special introductory price was $359,000, but that deal has expired. It's currently at $369,000, and I was told that it MAY reach a final price of $379,000 soon.

Also wait till the demand drops off and ANSA normally gives big discounts to move vehicles.

I have heard/known of people getting 15 to 30K knocked off the price just like that.

I can't see how you can compare a CRV/Rav/CX5 with a similar size European. The X1 is a Subcompact SUV going for more than 400,000. The X3 is the more similarly sized SUV and goes around 550,000. That's a big difference in price if you ask me.
Maybe my pockets just not as deep.

Yeah, the new Tijuan is an option. BA doest have the new model in Stock. but I was told it can be ordered. One of the managers told me it starts at 450,000/460,000 for the 2.0.
A salesman told me hey may be looking at the 1.4TSI in the near future, and take this with a pinch of salt, but he said it may start at 290,000

This is up for real argument, but as far as my experience has shown, there is NOTHING superior to the Japanese in terms of value for the dollar. European vehicles are not as cost-effective as Japanese. Maintenance cost is way higher. Too, in years to come, the Japanese is easier to sell, and you get a better percentage of the original price than the European.
That said, let's deal with the Honda with the 1500cc turbo engine.

The motor vehicle manufacturer's business is to make vehicles, and sell them. Years ago Volvo had an ad saying " The average lifespan of a Volvo in Sweden is 17 years". They pulled that ad after a while. You see, with world trends as they are NO ONE wants to keep any car for 17 years except the fix-the-unfixable Trini. Everyone out there wants to be seen in a sparkling car as often as possible. So the manufacture make the cars for them.
They tell you it is a 1500cc engine that will be energy efficient, not a gas guzzling 2000cc. But to make the small engine pull a bigger car, they add a turbocharger, which of course cost money, as well as an intercooler. Maybe it has to use Premium, I do not know. It will even out-accelerate the N/A 2000cc. But that engine is under pressure all the time. So the question begs itself....how long will it last ?
Honda as well as the others do not care after the warranty is up. Did they not give you what you wanted in a new car ? Even the Hyundai Tucson comes with a 1600 Turbo.
Just remember, that the tax increases the government implemented in January should not affect any vehicle 1599cc and under. But who is to say ?
I hope that some of you arguing here are not the ones with a penchant for champagne, but has money in the wallet only for puncheon rum.
Peace.

I was told late last year that there would be a lower model trim of the CRV available in Feb, and I can confirm that Classic has imported a few of these. I was told $314,000 a while back, but seeing it's actually here, I may be wrong with the price. Cloth seats, no led headlights, smaller infotainment (5"), smaller rims (17s), no Panoramic Sunroof, no side curtain, no powered tailgate or remote/push button. Still not a bad deal in my eyes

Oh dear god ... Another Fossil who thinks "turbo engines" are under pressure all the time and will not last long. Charged engines are not the future old man, they are the present .... You do know that material science has come a very long way and that Turbo's are old tech right? Even Toyota Turbocharging their engines ...

The AWD (4x4) CRV is closer to $400k ($39x) iirc. A similarly equipped 1.6L Turbo AWD Hyundai Tuscon is $320 or there about.. and the Tuscon isn't a bad buy either.

You just gotta decide what you want and the 4x4 fully loaded tucson 1.6T is 355K not 320K ... The Tucson also has disadvantages at its cheaper price point.
Its smaller, interior is less sophisticated and cheaper feeling, Dual clutch transmission which could end up causing you headaches since they don't do well in crawling traffic, piss poor infotainment system (small size, no colour, no android auto or apple car play), more expensive to maintain since Tucson has a 5K km service interval while the CRV has a 10K interval and lastly the resale on a CRV is and will be way better than a Tucson.

Brandon, you're on to something there. The 2.0 MPi unit combined with the 6AT torque converter automatic was a more stable combination for our market (Tucson) and would be more reliable in the long term. With the advent of the 1.6 GDi-T and dry clutch DCT, I just don't trust that combo. In fact, I don't trust any dual clutch be it dry or wet. I would take a Honda CVT over a DCT despite the heavy boredom associated with one.

You can't drive a DCT the same way as a torque converter automatic or CVT.
