This is the second price hike announced by the Indo-Japanese carmaker in 2022. Earlier in January, Maruti Suzuki increased car prices in India by 1.7 per cent across its model line-up. Back then too the company had cited rising input costs of raw materials as the primary reason for the imminent price hike.

Maruti Suzuki India is not the only automaker in the country to increase vehicle prices this year. Audi India, BMW Tata Motors and Toyota India increased vehicle prices on April 1, 2022. At the same time, Hero MotoCorp, and Mahindra & Mahindra hiked prices on April 5, and April 14, respectively. While the rise in input costs has certainly been a major reason for automakers to take this step, nonetheless, it has been a standard practice among automakers to increase vehicle prices both, at the start of a new calendar year and a new financial year.
