  • GST zero-rated: Mercedes-Benz models get rebates from RM11,799; AMG GT R is RM94,924 cheaper!

    Mercedes-Benz Malaysia (MBM) is the latest company to release new prices without the six-percent goods and services tax, which will become zero-rated come tomorrow, June 1. These prices will remain in effect until the reintroduction of the sales and services tax (SST) on September 1.

    The price adjustment will result in decreases starting from RM11,799, with the brand’s least expensive model, the A 200 AMG Line (the A 180 Urban Line has been discontinued), now dipping under the RM200,000 mark at RM197,089. At the other end of the spectrum, the top dog Mercedes-AMG GT R is a whopping RM94,924 cheaper, although it still costs a cool RM1,588,964.

    Separately, MBM has culled a few variants from its extensive 52-model lineup, including the CLA 250 Sport 4Matic, plus both the C 200 Avantgarde and Exclusive. Only the C 200 AMG Line, introduced late last year, lives on.

    There have also been changes to the local E-Class range, with the E 200 Avantgarde receiving a RM15,000 price drop – together with the RM18,858 GST saving, it now retails at RM315,030. Meanwhile, the E 250 Exclusive gets a RM5,000 price drop and now sits at the same price as the E 250 Avantgarde at RM357,483. These changes correspond with a change in specification, which will be detailed at a later date.

    The company is concurrently running a World Cup campaign (Mercedes-Benz is a sponsor of the German national team) until July 15, offering buyers either an interest rate of 1.98% with Hire Purchase Classic over a three- or five-year tenure, or Agility Financing. Both options come with either free insurance for one year or four free service vouchers (mileage cap of 48,000 km). There are additional offers for selected models.

     
     
  • GST zero-rated: Isuzu vehicle prices up to RM10k less

    With the goods and services tax rate set to be revised to 0% from 6% on June 1, Isuzu Malaysia has released a revised price list of its models. These new prices will come into effect on the aforementioned date until the implementation of the sales and services tax (SST).

    “There is no better time to own a brand new Isuzu model. We hope that with these new prices and tax structure, our customers will take the opportunity to upgrade while new customers will be attracted to become an Isuzu owner,” said Masayuki Suzuki, Isuzu Malaysia’s chief operating officer for light commercial vehicle.

    Without GST, the D-Max range now starts at RM80,889.20 on-the-road without insurance for the Single Cab 2.5L 4×4 MT variant. Meanwhile, the Double Cab variants will be priced from RM81,189.20 (Double Cab 2.5L 4×2 MT Hi-ride) to RM123,088.40 for the range-topping Double Cab Z-Prestige 3.0L 4×4 AT.

    As for the MU-X, both 2.5L automatic variants will be available at cheaper prices. The two-wheel drive MU-X goes for RM166,709.20, or RM9,931.20 less than the GST-inclusive price. Meanwhile, the four-wheel drive version will retail at RM172,709.20, or RM10,291.20 cheaper.

    There may be slight variations in the percentage of reduction, which is typically slightly less than 6% flat. This is because 6% GST is only applied on the selling price of a car (and in the case of CBU models, a Puspakom inspection fee), before GST-free registration essentials such as road tax, registration fee and ownership endorsement fee are added on.

     
     
  • GST zero-rated: Porsche prices down, by up to RM88k

    Sime Darby Auto Performance (SDAP) has announced new revised prices for its entire Porsche model range in line with the government’s announcement to reduce the tax rate of the goods and services tax (GST) to zero percent as of June 1.

    The company says the new prices will remain in place until the re-implementation of the sales and services tax (SST), which is expected to return in two to three months time. It has already been mentioned that the SST rate will be set at 10%, the rate it was before it was replaced by GST. It was reported today that the return of SST might see an increase in car prices.

    Following the revisions, the 718 Cayman now has a new base price of RM509,434, down by RM30,566 from that with GST in place. Meanwhile, the Panamera Turbo‘s base price is now RM1,462,264, a drop of RM87,736 from that previously. The base prices are for standard specification models, without options.

    The revised prices include SDAP’s four-year warranty and free maintenance package, which includes complimentary service, parts and labour. The company also added that standard zero-rate GST implementation will also apply for parts and service carried out at all SDAP authorised dealers.

     
     
  • GST zero-rated: Full Honda pricelist, up to RM18k less

    Honda Malaysia (HM) has released its full price list with zero-rated GST, which will be effective from June 1. Before this, we only knew the 0% GST prices for four models – City (non-hybrid), Civic, CR-V and HR-V – as those are part of a GST Bonus programme where HM is absorbing GST until May 31.

    These new prices – which are on-the-road excluding insurance – will remain in effect until the sales and services tax (SST) comes back to replace GST. Set at 10%, SST will happen “in two, three months” time according to Tun Daim Zainuddin of the government’s Council of Eminent Persons. That’s a fairly large tax-free window of opportunity, should you want to take advantage.

    Without GST, savings range from RM4,088 for the CKD Jazz to RM18,072 for the CBU from UK Civic Type R. That’s before Honda’s “Welcome Festive Rewards” promo, which should bring prices further down. No details yet, but it might be a continuation of the current “Welcome Ramadan Rewards” promo, which offers cash rebates and/or service vouchers. It runs till May 31.

    There may be slight variations in the percentage of reduction, which is typically slightly less than 6% flat. This is because 6% GST is only applied on the selling price of a car (and in the case of CBU models, a Puspakom inspection fee), before GST-free registration essentials such as road tax, registration fee and ownership endorsement fee are added on.

    Besides new car sales, GST for spare parts and service maintenance, including labour charges and genuine accessories, will be zero-rated from June 1.

     
     
  • GST zero-rated: Renault prices down by up to RM12k

    In line with the government’s decision to set the goods and services tax (GST) at 0% from 6% on June 1, TC Euro Cars (TCEC) has released updated pricing for its Renault models. Customers who do want to purchase a Renault need not wait until that date, as TCEC will absorb the current 6% GST for vehicles registered with immediate effect.

    Without GST, savings range from RM6,745 for the Fluence, up to RM11,763 for the Koleos 2.5L 4WD. TCEC is also offering additional incentives ranging from RM7,349 to RM33,255, allowing customers to enjoy total savings of up to RM40,000. For instance, the pre-facelift Captur is offered with more savings compared to the facelifted model.

    The zero-rated GST prices include a five-year/unlimited mileage warranty, and for the Captur, the 5-in-Captur aftersales package. “This is a great time to buy a Renault. We strongly encourage those looking for a stylish, vehicle with continental quality and safety standards to take advantage of this tax-holiday plus our additional incentives,” said Kuan Kim Luen, CEO of TCEC.

    There may be slight variations in the percentage of reduction, which is typically slightly less than 6% flat. This is because 6% GST is only applied on the selling price of a car (and in the case of CBU models, a Puspakom inspection fee), before GST-free registration essentials such as road tax, registration fee and ownership endorsement fee are added on.

     
     
  • GST zero-rated: Maxus prices down, by up to RM10.2k

    Weststar Maxus has announced a new price list for its range of Maxus vehicles in line with the changes made to the goods and services tax (GST), which will be zero-rated as of June 1. The reworked pricing with 0% GST will remain in effect until the re-implementation of the sales and services tax (SST).

    The government has revealed that the SST rate will be set at 10%, and though no date has been defined for the reintroduction of SST, it has been reported that it will be back in place within two to three months, which means consumers only have a short window of opportunity to enjoy this tax exemption.

    With the removal of GST, savings on Maxus models start from RM5,151 for a V80 SWB panel van, and the four variants in the G10 MPV range sees a price reduction ranging from RM7,808 for a G10 Sport to RM10,185 for a G10 Executive.

    The company also announced that it will be opening two new showrooms within the next couple of months, in Penang and Kota Bharu. It opened a showroom in Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur, in February this year.

     
     
  • GST zero-rated: Hyundai prices up to RM10,300 lower

    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.

     
     
  • GST zero-rated: Audi models up to RM37k cheaper

    Audi Malaysia has revealed a revised price list for its models, which will come into effect on June 1, 2018. This is in accordance with the government’s decision to set the goods and services (GST) tax rate at 0% from 6% then.

    All prices listed here are on-the-road without insurance, and there are savings to be had without GST. For instance, an A4 2.0 TFSI will retail at RM234,852.19 from June 1 onwards instead of RM248,900.

    Other examples include the Q7 2.0 TFSI quattro, which will be RM29,666.97 less when priced without GST. The amount of savings range from RM12,375.28 for a base A4 1.4 TFSI, up to RM37,043.35 with the A8 L 3.0 TFSI quattro.

    The company also announced a 6% reduction on the prices of packages like the Tech Pack and S line, which can be specified for certain models. All Audi vehicles sold by Audi Malaysia are fully imported and come with a five-year/unlimited mileage warranty.

    Keep in mind that there may be slight variations in the percentage of reduction, which is typically slightly less than 6% flat. This is because 6% GST is only applied on the selling price of a car (and in the case of CBU models, a Puspakom inspection fee), before GST-free registration essentials such as road tax, registration fee and ownership endorsement fee are added on.
