Tata Motors trolls Maruti after Swift scores zero stars in Latin NCAP crash test

 MUMBAI:Maruti Suzuki India is all set to hike prices of its cars once again. From next month, expect prices of Maruti cars to go up as the carmaker has confirmed that it will implement yet another price hike, its third since January this year. From Alto to Vitara Brezza, the price rise has been planned across all models Maruti currently offers in the market.

Maruti Suzuki India Limited came out with a statement today saying, “Over the past year, the cost of the company's vehicles continues to be adversely impacted due to increase in various input costs. Hence, it has become imperative to pass on some impact of the additional cost to the customers through a price rise.



 The new prices are going to be effective from September, just ahead of the upcoming festive season. However, Maruti has not given clarity on how big the hikes would be. Earlier, Maruti had hiked prices of its cars twice. In January, Maruti hiked prices of its cars by up to ?34,000 rupees on some car models, citing a rise in input costs. In April, when it decided to implement the second hike, prices of its cars went up by around 1.6 percent.

Maruti Suzuki is not the only Indian carmaker to hike prices of its cars due to the rising input costs. The Indian auto industry is grappling with weaker demand and higher costs since the coronavirus pandemic struck in March last year. Since then, over last few months, auto companies have seen demand return but have also warned about uncertainties ahead. Various carmakers have also increased prices this year to keep up with rising costs.

Tata Motors also hiked prices of its cars earlier this month. The hike, on an average of 0.8%, was implemented across all models. In May too, Tata Motors had hiked prices of its cars which made them costlier by up to ?36,000 for certain models.
