French siblings Peugeot and Citroen have confirmed price increases across each of their respective lineups in Australia, in a move described by the brands as “unavoidable”.
The companies have said that in the wake of rising production and logistical costs, it was left with no option but to increase MLPs for the second time this year, as Citroen and Peugeot, owned by Stellantis, aim to cover its manufacturing and distribution costs.
The damage comes in the form of a 5.6 per cent increase for flagship variants of the Peugeot Partner and the Peugeot Expert, while all other Peugeot vehicles have been smacked with a 6 per cent price increase.
For Citroen, the C4 Shine has received a modest 2.6 per cent price increase while prices for the remainder of Citroen’s lineup have risen by 6 per cent.
