Alongside the new price list for its BMW models, BMW Malaysia has announced new prices for the local MINI model range following the reintroduction of the sales and service tax (SST) on September 1. The SST, set at a rate of 10% for sales tax, replaces the 6% goods and services tax (GST) that was zero-rated in June and subsequently abolished.

Prices have gone up for the F54 Clubman range of models, the Cooper Clubman, Cooper S Clubman and John Cooper Works Clubman now RM4,000, RM5,000 and RM7,000 more expensive respectively than they were when GST was in effect.

As for the F60 Countryman, two in the model range have seen prices go down, and these are the Countryman Sports and plug-in hybrid variants, both now RM5,000 less than they were with GST in place. The JCW Countryman, however, has become RM7,000 more expensive.

The F56 3 Door and F55 5 Door facelifts as well as the JCW 3 Door, meanwhile, were launched during the tax-holiday period, and so do not have a GST baseline price, but with sales tax kicking in, prices for all three cars have gone up from when they were GST zero-rated.

The new MINI price list also mentions prices with options. For example, there’s a Dinamica leather seat option for the 5 Door Cooper S, which adds RM5,000 to the selling price of the car. The three available JCW models, the 3 Door, Clubman and Countryman, have a panoramic sunroof option that adds a further RM9,000 to the total price in each case.
