While the price of the Baleno and the Vitara Brezza has been increased by up to Rs. 10000 and Rs. 20,000 respectively, the quantum of hike for other models ranges from Rs. 1,500 to Rs. 15,000.

The compact SUV has garnered over 95,000 bookings and currently commands a waiting period of up to eight months.
