Honda Atlas increases car prices for 4th time in three months due to hike in GST, rupee decline
ISLAMABAD: Honda Atlas increases car prices for the 4th time in three months due to hike in GST and depreciation of rupee versus dollar and other major currencies.
After the imposition of a hefty 25% GST on luxury items, Honda increased its prices yet again. It is the fourth consecutive hike in car prices in the past three months.
According to the notification issued today, the company attributed the surge in prices to the plummeting value of the PKR against the USD and the recent spike in sales tax from 18% to 25%.
