Toyota hikes prices of select models by up to Rs 1.6 lakh

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Kirloskar Motor (TKM) today said it has hiked prices of select models, including Innova Crysta and premium SUV Fortuner, ranging between Rs 13,000 and Rs 1.6 lakh.

The decision to hike the prices has been prompted by the rise in cess from 2-7 per cent across mid-size to large size cars and SUVs by the Council, TKM said in a statement.

The company has increased the price of Innova Crysta by around Rs 78,000, Corolla Altis by Rs 72,000, Etios Platinum by Rs 13,000 and Fortuner by Rs 1.6 lakh, it added.

"Following the ordinance on amendment, we have to revise the price of our products in line with the cess hike which may nearly reflect the prices in the pre-scenario," TKM Director and Senior VP Marketing and Sales N Raja said.

Price of hybrids and small cars remains unaffected post the cess hike, he added.

With the notifying levy of increased cess, the effective on mid-size cars will be 45 per cent, and on large cars it will be 48 per cent.

The rate will be 50 per cent on sports utility vehicles (SUVs), which include cars with length exceeding 4,000mm and having a ground clearance of 170mm and above.

However, the cess on small petrol and diesel cars, hybrid cars and those carrying up to 13 passengers has not been raised.

Under the GST regime, cars attract the highest tax slab of 28 per cent and on top of that a cess is levied.
