The Toyota GR Yaris costs slightly less now*
When it debuted last month, the Toyota GR Yaris already commanded a steep RM299,000 price tag (sans insurance) when fully taxed. However, said figure has been revised following the government's recent move at extending the SST exemption on new car sales.
Being a fully imported (CBU) offering, the partial SST waiver the GR Yaris is entitled to until 30 June 2021 sees its price tag now reading at RM286,896. That's a RM12,104 reduction – barely a 5 per cent slash – from the initial launch price.
Nevertheless, this might entice even more prospects into this limited-run hot hatch's favour while stocks lasts. As reported, Toyota plans to build just 25,000 units of the GR Yaris globally, with just 200 units of which allocated for Malaysia through UMW Toyota Motor (UMWT).
Yep, still pricey, but this pint-sized yet punchy rally-rep is Top Gear's Hot Hatch of The Year 2020 with a perfect 10 out of 10 review score. Special is perhaps an understatement to say the least.
