Update – Hyundai Motor India announced today that it will increase prices across its product portfolio by INR 3,000-20,000 to offset increased raw material costs and depreciation of the rupee. The price increase comes into effect from August 16, 2016.
To be effective from September, reportedly.
According to Team-BHP member, RavenAvi, Hyundai India will hike prices of the Hyundai Creta by INR 15,000 from September 2016. Hyundai regularly revises its product price list in Q3 of every year, which is attributed to fluctuations in operational and manufacturing costs.
With this regard, Hyundai has sent an email to its dealer principals appraising them of the forthcoming price hike.
Currently, the Creta is priced between INR 9.17 Lakhs – 14.51 Lakhs (Ex-showroom Delhi).
