Volkswagen Malaysia has clarified the Polo GTI price increase on their Facebook fan page, explaining that the re-evaluation of pricing by the authorities is the reason for the big price hike of about RM34k for both the 3-door and 5-door models. This sounds like the same reason why the Passat CC price was increased as well. So basically it could be that a chunk (if not all) of the extra cost you’ll be paying is actually tax.
