Hyundai-Sime Darby Motor has released new prices of Hyundai models without the six-percent goods and services tax (GST). Set to come into effect on June 1, the figures are in line with the government’s move to set the tax to zero percent on that same date, ahead of the formal reintroduction of the sales and service tax (SST) sometime later this year.

That tax will be set at 10%, meaning that you only have two or three months to enjoy these savings before prices go up again – possibly higher than during the GST era.

Looking at the price list, the cheapest car on the list, the base Ioniq Hybrid, now ducks under the RM100,000 mark at RM94,788 – RM6,500 less expensive than before. Meanwhile, the most expensive model, the Starex 2.5 CRDi Deluxe, receives a RM10,300 lower price and retails at RM173,288.

As we reported last year, the Sonata and Santa Fe are nowhere to be found, having been discontinued in anticipation of new models. The Veloster has also been phased out, but that one won’t see a replacement that has already been revealed for other markets.
