Hyundai to hike prices by up to Rs 9,000

Hyundai Motor India on Wednesday said it will hike prices of its products by up to Rs 9,000 to offset rising input costs.

The company will be increasing the prices across all models between 1 per cent and 1.5 per cent, HMIL Director Sales and Marketing Arvind Saxena said.

“The maximum hike, however, will be up to Rs 9,000 and it will be effective from February 1,” he said, adding that the step was necessitated due to the rising input costs, especially that of commodities like steel.

HMIL sells models, including hatchbacks Santro, i10, i20 and sedans Accent, Verna and Sonata Embera, in the Indian market.

The company's move to increase prices comes on the heels of car market leader Maruti Suzuki India hiking prices of a majority of its models by up to 1.9 per cent last week.
