Why is the Toyota 86 so much more expensive than the VW Golf GTI?

When the 200 PS Toyota 86 was first launched in Malaysia in 2012, its asking price was RM 243,000 for the manual, and RM 249,000 for the automatic variant. For a supposedly affordable sports car, its pricing in Malaysia is hardly affordable at all. The more powerful (220 PS), more practical Volkswagen Golf GTI Mk7 can be had for about RM17k less, at RM 227,888.Toyota 86UMW Toyota then introduced the facelifted 86 in 2017.

It looks like the 2020 Volkswagen Golf GTI Mk8 stealthily got on our shores as one was recently spotted testing on Genting roads. Decked in Kings Red Metallic, we can tell that this is a GTI by a few ways: a telltale badge on its grille, front fascia design, unique wheels and twin-tailpipes. Is it CKD?Judging by how its unusual for CBU cars to wear Pahang trade plates and VW has a plant in Pekan, this likely points that the GTI is being worked on there. Wh
