What is the CCA Class for a Passenger Vehicle that "cost me less than $30,000" is it class 10 or 10.1?

In 2014, I traded in a passenger vehicle that I had been claiming CCA Class 10.1 on a new passenger vehicle. The net price to me after the trade in was less than $30,000. Would the new car be claimed as Class 10 or 10.1? The definition on CRA site, is a little confusing because the cost of the new car was more than $30,000 but after trade in, it cost me less than $30,000.

Here is where I am looking at CRA: http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/E/pub/tg/t4044/t4044-e.html#P619_45147

Hi there,

Any vehicle costing less than $30,000 belongs to class 10.
Any vehicle costing over $30,000 belongs to class 10.1.

If you disposed of your vehicle in class 10.1, you should fill out the correct information pertaining to the disposition (only one item can go into class 10.1). A vehicle acquired costing your less than $30,000 will belong to class 10, regardless of whether you used a trade-in vehicle to pay for it.

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
