Prices of Toyota Avanza, Sienta and Rush retainedPOSTED BY Jason Tan ON 19 April 2017
The Royal Malaysian Customs Department has decided to reverse its decision of increasing the excise duty for budget MPVs, SUVs and pick-ups below 1500cc.
The rate for such vehicles was raised from 60% to 65% in the Excise Duties Order 2017 but has since been revised with immediate effect.
UMW Toyota Motor SdnBhd (UMWT) has subsequently reverted to the previous price for its affected models, the Avanza, Sienta and Rush.
The company had earlier changed the prices for its models on April 10 in accordance to the sudden increase of excise duties. However, for orders collected between April 10 and April 12, UMWT has announced that it will be using the latest revised price based on the 60% excise duty.
Customers who require further information on this matter can call the Toyota freephone at 1800-8-TOYOTA (869682) or contact the outlet where they purchased their vehicle from.
