Jeep and ISUZU increase prices in India: Details here
Jeep and ISUZU are the latest to join the list of automakers which have increased the prices of their cars in India. Jeep's Wrangler SUV has become costlier by a whopping Rs. 1.25 lakh. Separately, the ISUZU D-MAX and MU-X are now up to Rs. 2.09 lakh more expensive. No changes have been made to the design and specifications of the vehicles.
Why does this story matter?
- The new versions of ISUZU D-MAX and MU-X were launched in India in March last year and this is their first price-revision here.
- However, Wrangler has received a hike for the second time since its launch on our shores. Rising input costs must have prompted the move.
- The demand for the cars might go down as buyers will wait for discounts in the future.
