Maruti Suzuki Cars To Get Costlier From January 2018

  • Dec 18, 2017

The hike will be up to 2 per cent to make up for higher commodity prices

Maruti Alto 800

Maruti Suzuki has said that it'll increase the prices of its cars by up to 2 per cent. Currently, all of its vehicles are enjoying some of the other offers except the Vitara Brezza, Baleno, Dzire and S-Cross. A hike of 2 per cent could result in a price increase ranging between Rs 4,920 and Rs 23,100 at the lower and uppermost brackets.

If you're on the line about buying a new Maruti Suzuki car, then beware that the increased prices will apply to cars manufactured in 2018. So, you may still be able to squeeze a good deal on a 2017-manufactured car if the dealer has some old stock. A short stock will limit your options, but you could walk away with a deal that's hard to say no to if you also consider the then prevailing prices.


While other carmakers also opting for a price hike to compensate for the fluctuating prices of the raw materials, Maruti's decision stands to impact the consumers the most. Maruti Suzuki already controls almost half of the Indian auto industry and plans to expand further by adding about 1,500 more dealerships in the next three years. The carmaker already has about 2,350 dealerships across the country. The rate of expansion is far beyond the overall industry growth, which means that the competition is about to get fierce. Maruti Suzuki has said that it's going to expand into new segments and along with other new cars, it'll also bring a bigger SUV to compete in the Rs 10 lakh - Rs 20 lakh price bracket.
