Given that Norway has the second highest cost of living in the world, is it really a surprise that the country came top in the EU for car price tags?
According to Statista, Norwegians have to fork out around €20,000 more than the EU average for a new car (€47,256 versus €28,855). This is partly due to the Nordic country imposing higher tax rates on vehicles.
Swiss residents also have to dig deep into their pocket when buying a car (€39,225), as well as those in Denmark (€37,047) and Luxembourg (€35,105).
The Greeks, on the other hand, seem to get a very attractive deal when purchasing a new set of wheels. Buyers there spend an average of €22,437 – almost €25,000 less than their Norwegian friends. Spain and Italy also benefit from lower car prices (€24,548 and €26,061 respectively).
