From fuel consumption to maintenance, these comprehensive comparison tables have all the relevant costs covered.

Before you buy a new car, it is a great idea to take a look at the ongoing costs – so you know what effect the car will have on your budget into the future. RACQ has done the hard work for you in our comparison tables on car running costs. In the tables you’ll find:

  • Comparisons for various sized vehicles available in Australia (micro cars, small cars (including prestige), medium cars (including prestige), large cars, people movers, small SUVs (including prestige), medium SUVs (including prestige), large SUV, all-terrain SUV, 2WD utilities, 4WD utilities and Electric vehicles.
  • Popular models, generally the top selling vehicles in each class.

All costs used in these calculations were current as at 4 April 2016, unless otherwise noted.

The information contained in these comparison tables is based on studies performed by RACQ and other state motoring clubs, and relies on certain assumptions and data as outlined in the explanatory notes, which you’ll find in the PDF of comparison tables.
