Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) has announced the revised prices of all its Volkswagen models following the implementation of the sales and service tax (SST) on September 1. With the exception of CBU models, the new prices of Volkswagen cars are now lower than previous prices with 6% goods and services tax (GST).

The new SST inclusive prices however won’t come into effect immediately, as the company had last week announced a price protection scheme (PPS) that will keep prices at zero-rated GST rates, the offer valid for all models registered by November 15.

The PPS is applicable to all Volkswagen models sold in Malaysia, both locally-assembled and imported, but the company had added that there was a determined allocation of stock for each model, so customers are urged to not delay in placing a booking to take advantage of the offer.

The company said the new tax structure has allowed it to be more competitive with its prices, with a reduction ranging from 1.5% (for the Tiguan Comfortline) to 2.6% (for the Vento Highline) compared against the previous tax structure with GST.

As for CBU models, the prices for a number of units have gone up as a result of SST, including that of the Golf 1.4 TSI R-Line, GTI and R, the increase ranging from RM6.4k to RM8.4k. There’s of course the PPS to still get them at tax holiday prices, but you’ll have to be really quick about it.
