How does the tool work and what are the price estimates based on?

CarsGuide's free car value estimator uses trusted industry data along with aggregated pricing from listings made on-site, updated on a monthly basis, to provide you with a car price guide. The prices exclude costs such as stamp duty, other government charges and options.

What factors impact the value of your used car?

If you want to sell your car or find out the trade-in value for your car, the CarsGuide pricing tool can help. Keep in mind, a number of factors can impact the value of a car. The condition of the car is a major factor. If the vehicle is in poor condition, the market value of your car will drop. If it has high kilometres on the odometer, the trade-in value of your car will drop too.

What are the current trends in new and used Car prices in Australia?

The current trends in new-car prices in Australia are that new vehicles - passenger cars, SUVs or utes - have increased in price as a result of parts shortages, including the semiconductor shortage. Car companies blame the price increases on the increase in material costs and shipping. It pays to do your research before buying a new or used car.

What is market value?

A lot of people will talk about 'market value' when it comes to buying or selling a used car, or getting a quote on used car prices in Australia. But what is market value? Simply, it is the amount you would reasonably expect to pay in the open market today, if you were going to go out and buy the same car now.

How does market value differ to trade-in price?

If you have ever asked, 'what is the trade-in value of my car?', you're not alone. The difference between 'market value' and a 'trade-in price' is that a trade-in price is what a dealer is willing to pay you for your old car that you're selling in exchange for buying a new car from the dealer.

When it comes to insuring your car, 'market value' refers to the amount your car is insured for and that's then used to determine how much you receive if your car is written off or stolen.
