Last week, leading car-makers Maruti Suzuki India and Hyundai had also announced to hike prices from January, joining the likes of Mercedes, BMW, Audi and Honda.

Maruti and Hyundai had cited rising input costs as the main reason for hiking the prices, across their entire model range, from next month but had not specified the quantum of the expected increase.

Earlier in the month, Honda Cars India Ltd (HCIL) had announced to take a price hike from first week of next month to partially offset impact of adverse exchange rate and inflation.
