  • The Hyundai cars prices will be hiked in the country by up to Rs 9,200.

  • The hike in price is due to increase in input costs owing to the addition of safety features. 

  • These safety features are now mandatory as part of the AIS 145 norms implemented recently.

Hyundai cars in India will undergo a price hike as announced by the company lately. The revised pricing will come into effect from August 1, 2019. As claimed by Hyundai, the change in prices will range up to Rs 9,200 across range save for Hyundai’s recently launched sub-four-meter SUVs, Venue and Kona Electric. Hyundai reveals the price hike is the outcome of higher input costs due to the addition of new safety features, as part of the new AIS 145 safety norms that were implemented from July 1, 2019.

This mandates all cars to get at least one airbag, a speed alert system, rear parking sensors and seatbelt reminder for driver and co-driver as standard. Coming to the Hyundai Venue and Hyundai Kona Electric, the new entrants in the company’s line-up are retailed at a starting price of Rs 6.50 lakh and 23.50 lakh respectively (ex-showroom prices, pan-India). These two models already comply with the new AIS 145 safety norms, hence the price hike is ruled out. One must note though, Hyundai Venue prices will be revised later, as currently is available at introductory prices.
