Those who afford their own vehicle often do not know what the costs of it will come up with. The ADAC calculated it. Site shows the 2015 car cost report. The cheapest car is a Frenchman – and it’s not a Dacia.

So it says. The latest family member with bumpers, tires and shiny paint. The acquisition price has been resumed whether with a blow or on a loan. The only thing that could be financially painful besides petrol would be a repair.

The new car cost report of the ADAC shows that this is not entirely intended. Because a car costs a lot more than you think. And not just the one time when buying or in the workshop, but every kilometer that is moved. Even if it is not moved, it loses value. Therefore, even the currently low fuel prices cannot hide the hole in the wallet in the long term.

Cost wasters loss of value

Of course there are new cars, the value of which even increases – but not everyone has a Ferrari Laferrari or Porsche 918 Spyder at home. And so every car owner has to bite into the acel.

Loss of value in new cars

  • As soon as a new car rolls off the farm, it loses value. Basically: The loss of value of a car starts quickly and then slowly flattened off.
  • The average loss of value across all car classes is 15 with an annual mileage of 15.000 kilometers in the first year after the new registration 24.2 percent.
  • In the following years it was only around five to six percent.
  • Site and the residual value experts from Bahr & Fess Forecasts have been analyzing the loss of value of new models since 2010 and chosen twice a year "Residual value giant", which have established themselves as a fixed size in the car industry. In our special "residual value" Find all data, facts and relationships on the subject.

The ADAC has all the costs that drivers have to shell out for their car and listed for individual models. The total costs in cent per kilometer are specified.

Petrol, taxes, workshop – and much more

  • In the average calculations, the ADAC assumes that the new car is driven for four years and in this period 60.000 kilometers covered. This corresponds to this 15.000 kilometers a year.
  • The largest post of monthly car costs is provided Loss of value dar (see info box).
  • Another factor are the operating cost, which causes the car in driving. Of course, this mainly includes the Fuel costs, But also refill costs for motor oil or other operating materials, as well as a flat rate of 250 euros for wage wash and care per year.
  • In the fixed costs there are expenses for Insurance, vehicle tax and a flat rate of 200 euros for parking fees, main and exhaust gas examinations and small accessories. Expenditures that arise, regardless of whether the car is or drives.
  • The fourth and last point are Workshop and tire costs, which are expected in the four years.

2800 kilometers of S-Class cost as much as a small car

  • The overall cheapest car is that Peugeot 108 VTI 68 (A segment, 25.8 cents per kilometer). Even a Dacia Sandero does not quite come close – but at least 28 cents per kilometer is the cheapest car in the B segment (small car).
  • The range of costs ranges from 25.8 cents to 3.17 euros. As a reminder: per kilometer. After 2800 kilometers driven The costs of a Mercedes S 65 AMG congruent with the purchase price of the little Peugeot.

  1. What is this nonsense?
    Hardly anyone here comes to think about wanting to buy an S 65 AMG 4 … Hardly anyone here comes to think about wanting to buy an S 65 AMG and thus pay over three euros per kilometer. Who wants these carts after 4 years? You get a 7 Series BMW after a year and 7000 km for half of the new price. None is interested, the average drives compact car with 125 hp. Most Germans have to pay attention to their budget, but maybe they save the annual contribution of the yellow fraudsters.

  2. Peugeot 107
    I just gave away my beloved Peugeot 107 after 6 years and 190,000km. As a frequent driver, I couldn’t drive him much longer. Pity. Except for inspection, he was never in the workshop. 5.1 l gasoline at 100km. 20 euros tax. It can no longer be cheaper. Only the very small trunk was negative. No family car stop. But I usually drive all by myself, but the space was enough for that.

  3. Mr. Gauer,
    I’m going to drive 30,000 km again this year and that will be too much. That’s why I gave my daughter as a second car, it doesn’t drive that many kilometers and so my Peugeot can drive for a few years longer. But I bought a Peugeot again.

  4. ??? Pages 2 – 5 ???
    Is there anything to read on page 2-5 except the pictures? Otherwise the report is a bit poor. I drive my cars for a few years more than the 4 years. Here it would be worth knowing whether this changes the order. The loss curve is becoming more and more flatter over the years.

  5. The technology behind this article
    The reader hardly opens up. I can’t imagine that there are readers who can get along with this article straight away. Short example – I would like to know which cars are the biggest destinies. So I click on page 5 – what does the inexperienced reader see? An Excel table that is not readable – you click on it and expect it to be shown enlarged, but not. The image series begins again from the beginning. So I gave it up. Why does journalism lose quality here?

  6. One can also exaggerate
    When I convert my polo like this, I come to 7.500 € a year. (15.000 km × 0.5 €) would mean that I buy a new one every 2 years. Apart from the loss of value, nobody needs new tires in the first 2 years. And hardly anyone needs the workshop in the first 2 years. Is the first inspection only after 30.000 km. Even after 4 years it does not make up so that. And depending on the insurance table, tax rate and driving style, an invoice fits after 5 years of term at the earliest, because there is not much with the workshop and new tires beforehand. Because who needs new tires for approx. 300,000 km, when summer tire changes are made regularly.

  7. If everyone would drive the car which he was
    In fact, then our streets would probably almost only be driven by Dacias or Pandas. From the compact class upwards, the number of financed or leased vehicles increases. After all, nobody wants to go to his neighbors as "Loser" stand up. Even my generation – which have paid off their huts and raised the children – can usually only afford their mid -range cars because money flows in from capital life insurance or other long -term systems. And the car manufacturers are still heating the whole hype further by literally throwing up the company vehicles for their employees "Envy" to generate with the neighbors without a company car.
