Maruti Suzuki select model prices increased by up to Rs 10,000
India's largest car manufacturer, Maruti Suzuki has announced an increase in prices of select models. The price change varies across models and ranges up to Rs 10,000 (ex-showroom, Delhi). Maruti Suzuki mentions that the price change on select models is being done owing to increase in commodity prices and foreign exchange rates etc. This does not include the Super Carry commercial vehicle. Price increase at the start of the year is a common practice wherein multiple automobile manufacturers increase the prices to justify the rise in foreign exchange and commodity prices.
Car prices in India have already reported a rise due to the ever increasing fuel costs that affects transportation. Further, the higher interest rates too have had a negative effect on the car prices. These factors when paired with the rise in commodity prices have made the cars more expensive.
