Maruti Suzuki on Monday said that it will increase the prices of cars from January 2024. In a BSE filing, the automaker informed that due to increased pressure, it has decided to hike prices of the cars."The Company has planned to increase the prices of its cars in January 2024 on account of increased cost pressure driven by overall inflation and increased commodity prices. While the company makes maximum efforts to reduce costs and offset the increase, it may have to pass on some increase to the market," MSI informed the stock exchanges today.

The company, which sells a range of vehicles from entry-level small car Alto to multi-utility vehicle Invicto, priced between 3.54 lakh and 28.42 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), however, did not specify the quantum of the proposed price hike.

The price increase will vary across models, Maruti Suzuki added.
