    BMW, Toyota, Mercedes-Benz and Audi have announced a price increase across their model line-up from April 1, 2022. All carmakers have cited rising input costs as the major reason behind the hike.

    • BMW will increase prices by up to 3.5 percent across its model range
    • Toyota will hike prices by four percent for its models
    • Mercedes-Benz and Audi will increase prices by three percent for their model range

    BMW said it will be increasing the ex-showroom prices of its models in India by 3.5 percent.

Currently, the BMW India line-up consists of the 2-series Gran Coupe, 3 Series, 3 Series Gran Limousine, 5 Series, X1, X3 and others. The price hike is, however, not applicable for BMW-owned Mini cars.


    Toyota’s ex-showroom prices will be increased by up to four percent. After January, this is the carmaker’s second price hike in 2022. In India, Toyota’s line-up consists of the new Glanza, Urban Cruiser, Innova Crysta, Fortuner, Camry and the Vellfire luxury MPV.


    Mercedes-Benz has said that prices for all its models will go up by three percent Back in January, Mercedes-Benz had increased its prices by 2 percent on select models. Mercedes-Benz’s India line-up includes the  A-Class Limousine, E-Class, CLS, S-Class, GLC, GLE and GLS, among others.


    Audi has also announced a three percent price hike across its line-up citing the same reason of rising input costs. In January too, Audi had increased the prices by three percent. Audi India’s line-up includes the A4, A6, A8, Q5, e-tron, among others.
