Honda will pass on import duty savings to new car buyers immediately, from the 30th of November most of Honda’s lineup will reduce the Federal Government’s tariff from 10 to 5 percent.
This will give new car buyers a saving of $1,500 and $3,000 on Japanese and UK sourced models.
”We are pleased to pass on these savings on award winning models such as the Accord Euro and Odyssey to our customers a month early,” said Honda Australia’s General Manager Sales & Marketing, Mr. Stephen Collins.
The Honda City light sedan has a new starting price at $19,490 for the VTi manual.
The Hondas built in Thailand are exempt from the duty reduction because a Free Trade Agreement already exists between Australia and Thailand.
Tuesday the first of December will see the duty savings start in all Honda dealerships, four wheel drive vehicles will not benefit from the reduction because they already have a five per cent import duty tax.
