Maruti Suzuki cars become costlier in India by Rs. 30,000
Due to rising input costs, Maruti Suzuki has raised the prices of its cars in India this January. Its portfolio includes models such as the Dzire, Alto 800, Ignis, Ciaz, Celerio, WagonR, Swift, Baleno, Ertiga and S-Cross, among others. The cars have become costlier by up to Rs. 30,000. No changes have been made to the design and specifications of the vehicles.
Why does this story matter?
Maruti Suzuki is the latest brand to join the growing list of automakers that have raised the prices of their vehicles in India this year. The rising cost of raw materials is said to be the key reason. All the models have received a significant price-hike, which might result in lowered demand as buyers may wait for offers and discounts in the future.
