Accord Motoring is pleased to grant Singaporeans an insight into the advantages of buying a new car over renewing a COE.

29 years ago, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) instituted a quota limit to vehicles called the Certificate of Entitlement (COE) which represents the right to vehicle ownership when land transport network usage skyrocketed due to rising affluence in the city-state.

Yearly Singaporeans are torn between renewing their COE or buying a new car.

A lot of factors like income state, car condition, taxes, insurance, and loans determine their choice.

A quick illustration below helps anyone chose between renewing their COE vs Buying a new car.

Renew 10-year COE for Category A car Purchase brand new Category A car

Purchase price $34,197 ** $96,999

Upfront cost $34,197 $29,100 #

Loan Amount – $67,899

Monthly installment – $966

Interest rate – 2.78%

Annual depreciation $3,420 $8,714

Rebate after 10 years – $9,860 (PARF value)

This illustration of PQP for August 2018, based on COE quota premiums from May – July 2018 shows how prohibitive it is to pay the upfront cost of renewing an existing car’s COE. Even though loans for renewing the COE are available, they carry higher interest rates compared to traditional automobile loans.

Modern cars rank higher than old cars in terms of fuel economy. Moreover, higher fuel consumption is the trademark of worn out engines. In Singapore road tax for cars over 10 years old increases at a rate of 10% per year, reaching an additional cap of 50%. Similarly, insurance premiums tend to increase for older cars, generally higher by 10-20% compared to that of new cars.

Considering car prices and COE premiums presently, the valid reason for renewing a COE is for cars in optimum condition. They must have low PARF values and the upfront cost of the Prevailing Quota Premium (PQP) isn’t overwhelming for one’s wallet. For those seeking lower upfront costs, advantageous interest rates for their car loan, and the assurance of warranties, then purchasing a new car might be the better option.

Finally, it is important to consider the state of one’s existing ride and how the car ownership fits into their overall budget. One may be able to extend the validity of their COE, but its vital that the car actually goes the distance and continues to serve them well in the years ahead? A lack of maintenance and damage through use or even accidents might adversely affect the state of the car.
