UMW Toyota Motor (UMWT) has listed on its website that effective today, April 1, 2022, the 12th-generation Toyota Corolla range will be priced with sales and service tax (SST) inclusive.

As of April 1, the Toyota Corolla range in Malaysia is priced at:

  • Corolla 1.8E – RM130,888
  • Corolla 1.8G – RM141,888

The new prices with sales tax included has taken effect from today, despite the exemption period ending on June 30, 2022 because the order books for the Corolla have been filled until the end of June, which means that any new units of this model booked from today will only be delivered from July onwards, according to a UMWT representative.

With this price adjustment, the 1.8G variant gets a price hike of RM2,000 over the RM139,888 price from June 2020, which was itself revised when the top variant gained a new nine-inch Display Audio unit that supports Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and Miracast. The 1.8E – without the Display Audio upgrade – also gets a price hike of the same amount, up from RM128,888 of before.

As before, both variants of the Corolla are powered by the 2ZR-FE 1.8 litre naturally aspirated inline-four cylinder petrol engine, which produces 139 PS at 6,400 rpm and 172 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. This sends drive to the front wheels through a CVT with seven virtual ratios, and the G variant additional offers paddle shifters for added manual control.
