It is the extra tax they are after. On new or used ones

But it seems that the Commission attackes the unfairness that the tax is not taken out on Cyprus citizens. And that is ofc highly against the EU treaty

Maybe the EU commission will start hitting the Cyprus government harder than they have up to now. Unless they do things will not change.

Cyprus has been evading some of the EU rules for a long time. They try to get away with as much as possible. This new hard line from the EU may just shake them up.

Yes hopefully the penalty can be something like to not pay out money that Cyprus should get from Eu. If so I am sure that this will be solverd very quickly

The bigger the engine the higher tax you will pay. You will also pay higher road tax for a 2.0 engine.
We have two vehicles, one is a 2.0 and the years road tax is 235euros per year.
The other is a 1.3. jimny and the road tax is 35euros per year.

Incredibly a Mazda RX8 with a 1.3 litre rotary engine is best value for money in Cyprus with this whole tax thing. A sports car with low tax

Why does everybody want to import a car to Cyprus anyway? Too expensive to just buy one there?

They are certainly more expensive than in the Uk but IMO if you look around you can get some bargains now and the cost of bringing one over from the Uk is not worth it.
There are garages now who import used cars from the Uk with full service history at very reasonable prices.

I suspect you could probably get good deals now as the car industry is on its knees, an ex-showroom one for example. I know someone who bought a 5 year old Honda Jazz in good nick for 5,000 euros which I thought was incredibly cheap.
