PRICES SHAVED

4 x 4 Australia - - The Score -

CHRIST­MAS has come early for some Toy­ota and Mercedes-benz buy­ers, as the com­pa­nies have passed on the sav­ings of a higher Lux­ury Car Tax thresh­old.

The price drop – well, more like a price shave, and a very light one at that – to­tals $284 for the en­tire Landcruiser 200 Se­ries range and Prado VX and Kakadu mod­els (both petrol and diesel vari­ants). Mercedes-benz has re­duced prices on all GLS and G-class mod­els by $285.

The Lux­ury Car Tax thresh­old rose from July 1 by $948 to $64,132 in line with in­fla­tion, while the rate for fuel-ef­fi­cient ve­hi­cles that use no more than 7.0L/100km rose by $151 to $75,526.
