Car prices up across the board? Not so. While 2016 has brought about new and higher prices for Honda, Toyota, Lexus, Kia, Peugeot, Citroen, Audi, Mitsubishi, Nissan (announced today, up in April) and even national carmaker Proton, there have been bright spots.
Prices for the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, BMW 1-Series and BMW 3-Series have come down thanks to Energy Efficient Vehicle (EEV) duty incentives. Down the scale, market leader Perodua has held on to 2015 prices despite pressure on margins from the forex effect. Not only that, P2’s is now dangling a RM3,000 “cash redemption” for the Myvi. The promo is for the month of March 2016.
The fine print reads “for selected Myvi variants only”. We enquired, and the variants eligible for the RM3,000 rebate are the base Standard G and the range topping Advance.
The Myvi 1.3 Standard G starts from RM40,862 for the manual and RM43,862 for the auto, OTR including insurance, before discount. The Myvi 1.5 Advance is priced at RM57,968 for solid paint and RM58,368 for metallic. Click here to see the equipment list for each Myvi variant. The company added a 1.3 Premium XS variant in September 2015.
