Car prices in Turkey are quite high. You have to pay 3-4 times more to buy a car in Turkey. Because taxes are too high. If the price of a vehicle is 1 when it comes to Turkey, the sales price goes up to 3. Special consumption tax only 60%. There are other taxes as well. One of the most reproached issues by Turkish people is car prices. Because many people want to own a car. But in order to achieve this, he has to give the money he can earn by working for many years to the car.
Turkish people often compare the car prices in Europe and America with the car prices in Turkey. In Europe, it is possible to buy second-hand cars with only 1-2 minimum wages. However, the cars you can buy at the most affordable price in Turkey start from 200,000 liras in Turkish lira. The minimum wage is 5500 TL. That means 36 months’ salary. And the car you will buy for 200 thousand liras is probably a 2005 model Peugeot 206. Let me give one more example. I have a Ford Fiesta car. 2013 Model. Almost 10 years old. Currently, its price in Turkey is around 350.000 TL.
And unfortunately, I work for minimum wage. My monthly income is only 5.500 TL. A few months ago, the minimum wage was 4.250 liras. If I want to buy this car now, I have to work for 5 years. Of course, if I don’t spend even 1 lira. If I did not have this blog site that I have prepared, if I could not earn money from Google ads, unfortunately, I would not be able to own a car in my life.
The reason I gave these examples was to help you understand how difficult it is for people living in Turkey to buy a car in Turkey. Now let’s come to car prices in Turkey.
