Over and above the purchase price of your car, just how much money are you committing to servicing and fuel every year?

There’s no surprises here that luxury marques and models have a high purchase price, and the servicing costs aren’t far behind.

The table below shows the average car servicing cost per annum based on a 10-year logbook service schedule, and the annual fuel cost, based on the average distance Australians drive per year.

The Jaguar XF has a high/low pattern, with each second service costing $550 to $760.

Similarly, the Volvo XC-90 has a $600 to $700 every second service, and the Holden Calais $365 and $570 turn-by-turn.

Be prepared for an expensive service for the Audi A5 every 60,000 km / 2 years, with a $1,000 service at each multiple of those milestones.

There’s a more elongated grace period with a high servicing cost for the Lexus IS-F, kicking up to between $500 and $800 every 90,000 km.

The last big takeaway from the luxury car data is the excellent fuel consumption figures of the Jaguar XF and Audi A5, both just over 40% cheaper than the other three cars in this category.

Now, imagine a seamless segue here...
