Default Hyundai to hike prices (2%) 1000-18000 from 1st week of June

Hyundai will hike prices of cars including hatchback models Santro, i10, Getz along with sedans Accent, Verna, Sonata Embera in the country.

Price hike would be 2% which would be between 1000-18000.

So, all you people, considering to buy i10 or Verna or the newly facelifted Sonata Embara, HURRY UP. Prices would be increased form 1st week of June, 2008.

That means all car companies will follow now. Inflation is really hitting us hard now.

Will speak to Hyundai and see what they say.

they will deliver your car after the price hike like maruti is doing.

but since there is waiting period i think you should hurry up,whats the point of losing rs 8000 on same car within few days.

Spoke to Hyundai an hour back - he says the price hike is not confirmed, BUT he thinks it will happen soon as MUL has also done.

He says give a deposit of 5k or so and no price hike will be there for you.

Usually the price on date of registration is considered as the price of the car. If they are taking booking of 5k means they already have stock of the car and they will sell you the same old model in stock which they got from hyundai in old price stock. If you cancel the booking then they will charge ~5k as cancellation money.

Here we go again. Now this would make overpriced cars like i10 even more overpriced.

@vkochar:
just confirm what will happen to 5k incase of cancellation.if you will get full refund back then there is no harm in giving 5k.
but if it is non-refundable then i think you should make your decision fast.

All companies will follow suit now. As the i/p costs have gone up drastically. The plastic parts, the fabric parts, the steel parts every thing have gone up. The crude is at $130/barrel today. Very difficult to maintain at the same cost. Even I saw the news of price increase in news CNBC today.

OT: Even the idli/dosas we eat at hotel are costing more nowadays leave alone automobiles. ;-(

Yes, you are right. I mis-read it.

Yes, the money is refundable since I know the owner of the dealership personally. But why would I cancel once I pay ?

I feel i10 is the best small petrol car one can buy at its price. i10 Magna is costing me less than 4 Lacs OTR after discounts ( 3.96 L to be precise ). What more do I need ?

I have to sell my Santro tommorrow, lets see. Will keep you guys updated.
