Philippines car price movements this January 2021

Updated Jan 18, 2021 | Same topic: Automotive Industry Updates

A new year can mean changes in car prices. 

It is now the first month of 2021. As such, we can expect the prices of some car models to undergo some changes. Note that this might be due to a manufacturer adjusting to market trends, taxes, inflation, which are the usual causes of a car price increase. And yes, the dreaded DTI Safeguard Duties on imported passenger cars are yet to be implemented.
