Real prices: we went to the dealers and found out everything

And buyers take it because they fear it will get even more expensive. Especially for the readers of “Behind the Wheel”, expert Yuri Timkin visited a dozen car dealerships and became acquainted with the prices. Here are some points of interest from his route.

By the way, do you remember the car shortage situation a month ago? At that time, dealers gave in exchange 200-300 thousand rubles, and sometimes half a million rubles each, imposing salon floor mats, a protective net and other trifles … Now there are no mandatory special podiums! But sometimes you have to pay even more compared to the RRP.

Here are the prices reported to our expert by car dealer managers.

  • Toyota RAV4 — four-wheel drive, 2 l, CVT, comfort equipment; dealer price – 5.3 million rubles. For your information: suggested retail price (recommended retail price) for such a complete set at the time of writing this note is 3,035,000 rubles.
  • Renault Duster – four-wheel drive, 2-litre engine; dealer price – 2.4 million rubles. Recommended retail price for the Style package (top version, all-wheel drive, 2.0, petrol, manual gearbox only) – from 2,049,000 rubles.
  • Kia Seltos – a crossover suitable for us with a 2-litre engine and four-wheel drive is now really available for the price 3.5 million rubles. RRP such cars start from 2,374,900 rubles (style equipment).
  • Skoda Kodiaq – the dealer rated the diesel version on … 6 million rubles. And besides, he offered exactly the same pre-styling – 500 thousand cheaper. The suggested retail price for four-wheel drive vehicles with diesel engines is now 2,643,000 rubles (Ambition) and 2,818,000 rubles (Style).
  • Lada Vesta Sedan – 1.6 l, 113 hp, CVT; the car in Luxe Enjoy Pro version is for sale at the dealer for 1,870,900 rubles. The recommended factory price for it is a little less than 1.5 million rubles.

Let’s clarify that we are talking about real prices at specific dealers in Moscow – we do not give their names, since today everything is very individual and changes almost every day.

As you can see, the margins are somewhere higher and somewhere less. In addition, the situation is different in other respects: in some car dealerships there is no one, in others there is a hurry, somewhere the prices are hidden and somewhere they are displayed.
