Isuzu reduces prices of the V-Cross and MU-X by Rs. 60,000 and Rs. 1,50,000 respectively due to the GST laws coming into effect from July
Isuzu is offering huge discounts on its product range especially the MU-X premium SUV that was launched in India recently and the D-Max V-Cross adventure pickup truck. The MU-X has been made available with a price slash of up to Rs. 1.5 lakh. When launched earlier in May, it carried a price between Rs. 23.9 lakh and Rs. 25.9 lakh for the two variants (ex-showroom, New Delhi).
The latest reduction implies to the 4×2 variant being now priced at Rs. 22.4 lakh while the 4×4 model is quoted with Rs. 24.4 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi) – a welcoming prospect for the potential buyers seeking a premium SUV.
The Isuzu MU-X derives power from a 3.0-litre in-line four-cylinder turbocharged diesel mill which is capable of delivering 174 bhp and 380 Nm of peak torque. The engine is coupled with a five-speed automatic gearbox. The Japanese automaker does not stop the discounts with the MU-X as the V-Cross pickup has seen its price being reduced by Rs. 60,000.
From Rs. 13.3 lakh to Rs. 12.7 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi), the V-Cross gets a tasty benefit as well courtesy of the GST announcement. The V-Cross gets power from a 2.5-litre four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine good enough to pump out 134 bhp and 320 Nm of peak torque. It is connected to a five-speed manual transmission and comes only in 4×2 configuration.
The new Goods and Services Tax structure will come into effect from July onwards. As a consequence the SUV and luxury vehicles will encounter bringing down of up to 43 percent total tax levied – 12 percent more from the current state of 55 percent.
On the contrary, the new GST will reflect on the negative side for the budget car seekers. The total tax implied on the sub four metre cars stays currently at 25 percent and it will be increased to 27.5 percent while the small cars will be taxed 29 percent.
