Toyota's popular offerings in India — the Innova Crysta MPV and the Fortuner SUV — have become costlier by up to Rs 58,000, after the company increased the prices of its models owing to the periodical rise in input and freight costs.
The prices of Toyota Innova Crysta, which is sold in 18 variants now, have gone up in the range of Rs 22,400-27,000. On the other hand, the Fortuner SUV prices have seen a hike in the range of Rs 53,000-58,000.
Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM), the Indian subsidiary of the Japanese carmaker, had increased the prices of its products like the Innova, Fortuner, Corolla and Etios by up to Rs 1.6 lakh in September 2017, following the hike in Goods & Services Tax (GST) cess.
