Maruti Suzuki Hikes Prices Of Select Vehicles By Up To Rs 10,000

Maruti Suzuki India Ltd. said it increased prices of its select models by up to Rs 10,000 with immediate effect to offset adverse impact of an increase in commodity prices and foreign exchange rates.

“The price change varies across models and ranges up to Rs 10,000 (ex-showroom, Delhi),” the carmaker said in a statement.

While most of the company’s models would see an increase in price, the recently launched new version of Ertiga has been left out of the exercise. Maruti Suzuki sells a range of vehicles starting from entry-level Alto 800 to the premium crossover S-Cross that were priced between Rs 2.53 lakh and Rs 11.45 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) before the price hike.

In December, the company said it will hike its car prices from January but did not specify the amount of hike.

Besides Maruti Suzuki, auto makers like Toyota Kirloskar Motor and utility vehicle maker Isuzu Motors India had also announced plans to hike prices of their respective models from January.

Shares of Maruti today closed 1.07 percent down from its previous close at Rs 7,385.95 apiece on the BSE.
