"due to rising input costs" - one reason that really pinches hard.

Wasn't it just last year or so that prices were revised?

I guess manufacturers would also have to make up for all the freebies and discounts that have been flowing since quite some time.

Bad move in an already depressed market, or maybe they raise prices and then give discounts. I am sure these guys read market movements and sentiments but get surprised when moves such as these are announced.

Especially bad as i am considering a Toyota product seriously and buying it will surely pinch me more and i dont see myself making a decision before October. Also surprisingly Toyota does not give a price grantee when you book (Which i think should be the norm).

@bluevolt,
Any further information available on this?
Is this the final 'squeeze' being applied on the current model before the facelift?

Toyota increases its prices too soon too often! This is when most of there vehicles are low on gadgets and goodies compared to the segments other offerings. Please stop doing a "Honda" on us consumers.

Not a very wise move. The market is already depressing with high interest rates and rising fuel prices. Now, with rise in the vehicle price will surely put off potential buyers.
Had'nt Toyota increased prices on their vehicles in the recent past? Seems they following their Jap counterparts - Honda.

Even if you book now, wouldn't the invoice be made for the prevalent price at the time of delivery?

The dealer will conveniently adjust the price rise. Nothing is free!

Guess they'll come in the form of freebies like accessories etc.

Seems Toyota wants to climb UP the path that Honda has just climbed DOWN. Wrong move made at an equally wrong time.

  11. Punto 1.4 Emotion Pack: 6.80 lacs
  12. Jazz X: 6.90 lacs
My list in search for a basic diesel hatchback with PS
Beat Ps 429000/-
Vista Ls Tdi 429000/-
Indica eV2 435000/-
Figo Lxi 459500/-
Vista LS QJD 479000/-
Ritz Ldi 492000/-
swift ldi 517000/-
Punto Active 517000/
Micra XV 569000/-

These are ex showroom prices of Delhi,
My observation based on my need of a basic diesel car 90% city, only me and my wife. daily running of around 40kms in city, driven rarely by me or by my wife as we have a driver.
Beat in Basic is good VFM and cheapest as I have not known TDi engined Vista much so I rule it out
Vista QJD does not have much advantage compared to ritz as difference is just 13k and when u compare resale after 5 yrs it comes as costly to own.Micra does not have a basic PS varient.

They have increased the price of Innova by over a lakh in the last one year! Still it sells with a waiting period of 3 months and more. So why should they refrain from increasing the price? Even the price of Altis has increased significantly over the last year. There has to be a worthy competitor for these cars, otherwise they simply keep increasing the price. Civic upgrade is long overdue, and now Altis has comfortably crossed Civic sales figures.

What really concerns me is that even if I have Rs. 12.5 Lac at my disposal, I still won't get ABS and Airbag for a vehicle of this size. For V version I have to stretch my budget to 13.7 Lacs.

We have only 2 vehicles at present competing in this category are Xylo and Innova. One has to pay 30 %- 35% if one wants a better plastic, more refined engine and brand name.

Hi manoj,

This EMI scheme is valid for a loan amount of five lacs and tenure of 5 years. You can surely get some other discounts as well as this is not directly a cash discount.

Keep increasing the prices and keep pushing bare bones car models in the name of "India Specific" cars. Sweet.

Toyota big successes were in taxi sector, namely Qualis and Innova.

Bring the same attitude to the consumer car market at your own peril Toyota.
