Isuzu car prices after GST range with a reduction between 6 and 12 percent; commercial pickups have also been benefitted
Isuzu Motors India has jumped in the bandwagon to announce its revised pricing following the implementation of GST tax structure from July 1st onwards. The MU-X SUV, which was launched in India recently replacing the MU-7, has seen a revision to Rs. 22.38 lakh (ex-showroom, Chennai) for the 4×2 variant at a decrease of up to 8 percent from the previous price.
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 price slashing for the MU-X ranges between 6 and 12 percent across Isuzu’s authorised dealerships present across the country.
On the other hand, the D-Max V-Cross has faced a reduction of 6 percent over the previous pricing and is now sold at Rs. 12.67 lakh (ex-showroom, Chennai). The other versions of the D-Max such as S-Cab and the Regular Cab positioned in the commercial pickup truck segment also get benefitted from the GST implementation.
The D-Max Regular Cab carries a price tag of Rs. 6.81 lakh while the D-Max S-Cab comes priced at Rs. 8.01 lakh (ex-showroom, Chennai). The Except for the hybrid models, the GST has largely benefitted the customers from up and down the scale. The luxury vehicles took advantage of them as price reduction has been marked in lakhs for individual variants.
In an attempt to offset the revenue departure, state governments seems to be planning to increase the road tax. They will be imposed on the cars and SUVs over and above the current GST and it is predicted to take the prices higher. It could possibly affect the sales figures as well in the coming months. In Maharashtra, the road tax has already been increased by 2 percent.
