India’s Largest Carmaker Hikes Its Prices!


At this point, it was pretty much expected of the market leader to increase its prices just like every carmaker is doing these days. Maruti Suzuki has hiked the prices of all its cars from the Arena and Nexa range. Unsurprisingly, this is due to the rise in input costs for the manufacturer. The price hike for Arena models is from ₹10,000 to a substantial ₹30,000 for cars like the WagonR. The Nexa range sees a hike between ₹15,000 and ₹21,000. With the price hike aside, let’s take a look at some of the upcoming cars from the Indian carmaker:

Maruti Wagon R Extra Ediotn

Next-gen Alto

This compact family car has been one of the most famous Maruti of the Indian market. The low cost, compact design, good economy, and decent comfort make it the best daily commuter for people living in crowded areas. The new-generation Alto has been spied testing. Though camouflaged, we could still see certain similarities in design with the present gen Alto. The rear seems to be slightly different and the interiors could also get the new Celerio like look. It could be powered by the same 800cc engine which is available as a petrol or a CNG or we could also see the entry of a 1.0L variant.
