Maruti Suzuki hikes prices by up to Rs 17,000


New Delhi: Country’s largest carmaker Maruti Suzuki India (MSI) said it has increased prices of its models by up to Rs 17,000 in order to partially offset rise in input costs.

In a regulatory filing, it said the hike will range between Rs 1,700 and Rs 17,000 across models owing to increase in commodity, administrative and distribution costs.

The company had said last month that it will take a price increase from this month.
