Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) has announced hike in the prices of its Innova Crysta MPV and the new Fortuner in India to offset the impact of the commodity price increase in the country. The price hike is effective from May 1 2017.
The prices of the Innova Crysta have been hiked by 1 percent while the company hiked the Fortuner prices by 2 percent. This is the second hike of Toyota this year. The latest hike is not applicable to Toyota's other models like the Etios Series, sedan Corolla and premium sedan Camry.

Currently the Innova Crysta is priced in the range of Rs 13.72 lakh and Rs 20.93 lakh and the new Fortuner goes with a price tag between Rs 25.92 lakh and Rs 31.12 lakh (All prices ex-showroom, Delhi).
