Some of those prices are crazy...who will realistically buy an accent or creta when an ioniq is just 10k more?
The base and middle tucsons seem like the only decent value for money there.
At 600k, why would anyone buy a Santa Fe? That’s x3/q5/glc territory

The last time TTTL imported a Corolla hatchback was 18years ago. It was the AE111 1.6. Since then 3 generations have passed and we're about to start a 4th generation launched since that time. With crossovers/SUVs and pickups in more demand now than cars, I won't hold any breath to look forward to the all new Corolla hatchback.

Those aren't hatchbacks... They're liftbacks and they started with the ae101

The first set that were brought to Trinidad and Tobago had very limited numbers... Nothing more than 20 by my estimation.

That new corolla hatch doesn't seem too bad imo but the price from the firm if it does indeed reach our shores will surely run me from even entertaining the thought.

Guys just a heads up ... ANSA service center in Chaguanas has been over charging me for oil on the services.
Car takes 3.7 quarts, Have been charged for the last 3 services for 5 quarts, the first service I did in south was charged for the correct amount of oil. No real apology was given just said they would refund the cost of the 3 quarts.

Dont know how many people they doing this too ...
Be very careful if you servicing your new car in ANSA central branch.

When you compare prices between different models on other markets it is clear that the level of dig out eye is not the same among local car dealers

Alright guys so...
I'm usually a basher of TTTL, but the Prius C is now being offered at $167,500
I checked the car out and it's better spec'd than anything else in the showroom.
Comes with cruise control, leather seats, full spare, smart key, 15" alloys. Even the Corolla was on hubcaps.
No auto lights or reverse camera though. Lights are also halogen projector and not HID.

Didn't have the time necessary to take it for a drive to comment on the noise level, harshness of ride, steering comfort etc but for $30k less than the Ioniq, it's a great buy.

3yrs/100k and 8 yrs on the HV battery.

Ioniq starts at about 22000 US while prius about 20000 US

So the price differential seems roughly the same

My question is how does a retail price of 20000 US translates to 167000 tt when no taxes have to be added

Have you matched trim levels?

Well I looked at the starting price of both of them since it may be difficult to obtain exact trim on both sides

However my point is I believe that instead of passing on the savings due to lack of taxes the dealers are upping their markup

Question for you guys here, if there's less taxes on 1600cc and under, how come the CRV (1.5T) is prices at $310k and $379k?, its priced higher than 2.0l suv's eg the FL quasqai ($340k), FL x-trail ($360k), CX-5 ($313k), FL sportage ($330k) and the FL Tucson ($340K)

Have you factored in economies of scale into the price comparison (LHD vs. RHD)?
