Hyundai To Hike Car Prices From January

Gear up to pay up to Rs 30,000 more on all Hyundai cars from 2019


If you were planning to buy a Hyundai car next year, we have some bad news for you. The South Korean carmaker has decided to hike prices by up to Rs 30,000 across its entire range of vehicles in India starting January 2019.

According to Hyundai, the upcoming hike in prices is mainly due to a significant increase in operating costs. To make matters worse for carmakers, hardening interest rates and a sharp increase in raw material prices, including those of steel, have also led to an increased pressure on the industry.

With the latest price hike, Hyundai has joined a long list of carmakers which include the likes of Toyota, BMW, Volkswagen, Skoda and Maruti. The price hike in January is mostly cyclical as most carmakers revise their pricing upon the turn of the year.

Here is what Hyundai said on the announcement.

(HMIL), the country’s largest passenger car exporter and second largest car manufacturer since inception today announced a price increase up to Rs 30,000 on account of increase in input costs.
