Toyota and Lexus reduce pricing on models affected by Luxury Car Tax

Toyota and its premium marque Lexus have moved again to head-off the impact of Australia's Luxury Car Tax (LCT) by cutting prices on a number of models to keep them below the newly raised threshold. Growing in-line with inflation, the LCT threshold rose by $948 last week to $64,312, while the threshold on vehicles listing fuel consumption below 7.0L/100km increased by $151 to $75,526. In both cases, LCT is imposed at a rate of 33 per cent on the amount above the threshold.
