Effective 1st of June 2018, the Goods and Services Tax (GST) is to be set at 0% and we suspect it’ll make the Toyota C-HR an even more attractive prospect from now.
By not paying the extra 6%, the asking price for the C-HR has now dropped to RM 137,300 (without Insurance); a full RM 8,000 cheaper than before at RM 145,500 – a figure most thought were a little “out of reach”, to say the least.

That said, it’s still not as competitively priced as the 2017 CBU Mazda CX-3 with G-Vectoring Control (RM 131 k) and the Japanese-import factor of the CX-3 still has the edge in terms of appeal to most buyers, against the C-HR from Thailand.

As for the SUVs, the 2.0-litre Harrier Turbo “Luxury” we reviewed recently is now priced at RM 245,233 instead of the RM 259,900; nearly RM 15,000 cheaper from when we had it – wonder what that will do to the waiting list/duration for the car.
