Prices of Maruti Suzuki cars and SUVs have been increased in the range of Rs 5,193 to Rs 11,693
Echoing prevailing industry trends, India’s largest carmaker Maruti Suzuki has increased prices of its cars at the beginning of the new financial year. In recent months, other carmakers such as Mahindra and Tata Motors had also announced price hikes. Maruti’s latest price hike applies to both its Arena and Nexa cars.
In an earlier announcement made on April 06 to stock exchange, Maruti had stated that the company has been facing challenges due to increase in a wide range of input costs. As a result, the company had little option other than to pass some of the additional cost burden to customers.
Maruti has now confirmed that prices have been increased with effect from April 18, 2022. Actual price increase will be based on the specific model. Weighted average price increase across the portfolio is 1.32% (ex-showroom prices, Delhi).
