Yes, it is.
Even the cars booked one day before the price hike will attract the new price.

As I stated earlier, whatever is the price on the day of billing would be applicable to you.

Are the prices quote for all variants or as per the variants i.e. for Swift P has the price increased by 9k for all the variants or its 9k for the ZXi & less for other variants?

I have booked a Dzire VDi on April 18th and followed up with the sanctioning of the loan amount for the rest of the car(ie i have paid 6.35 lacs upfront), and am waiting for the delivery of the car.Will i have to pay the extra amount due to the price increase?

p.s i had paid the full amount as i was told by the dealer that customers paying full will be given preference.

someone please kindly enlighten.

Don't know if anyone had noticed. Maruti had reasoned that this hike was necessary due to increased input costs. That would mean that input cost has increased for all models. If that is true, then why a hike of only 9k for Swift P and 15k for Diesel. Only difference being the Engine. Also, DZire P share most of the parts with Swift P, why the price has been hiked by 15k (6k more than Swift P). Now, SX4 is the newest car re-designed etc. This has been increased by 9k only. Again a diff of 6k when compared to Dzire P. Don't know if I am missing something here.

I guess there is tradeoff on the sales as well. The cars which sell well will continue to do so like swift D irrespective of price hike. The cars which are not doing so well need to be impacted the least as their sales will get hit real bad with a higher price increase.

That's the reason why Honda has increased the Civic's price as well but has not increased the City's price as it is already priced higher than the competition. It may sell well but you don't want it out of reach of the mid size segment buyer's mind.

In case of DZire, the hike is more due to the introductory price offer ending. Read this somewhere.

by cancelling the booking,the dealer has nothing to lose in this case,he may add some accessories and then sell the car at a high price with ready delivery.

BIMAL was asking me to pay the new price for it.

Booked my Dzire on 1st April, thats within a week of launch and was told 30 days for delivery, have not received the car yet and now the price hike. If introductory price was the concept by MSIL then they should have maintained the santity of it. I actually feel cheated and am thinking of cancelling the booking.

Maruti has increased car prices citing sharp increase in input cost & the new BS IV norms.

The prices have been increased by 1000 on Ritz and the A-Star,2500 on Estilo, 3750 on Swift, 7000 on Dzire and 9000 on SX4.

Introductory price of Eeco has been withdrawn & the price increased by 10,000.
