Tata Motors said on Friday it has increased prices of its passenger vehicles, except small car Nano and premium crossover Aria, by up to Rs 12,000 to mitigate the impact of high input costs.

The company said the price hike has been effective from Thursday across the country.

"The high input costs have been impacting us for quite some time. We have decided to pass on some burden to our customers.
"The quantum of the hike will vary between Rs 7,000 and Rs 12,000 depending on the model," a company spokesperson told PTI.

"The price hike has been effected since Thursday," the spokesperson added.

Maruti Suzuki India hiked prices of its vehicles, except for entry-level sedan DZire, by between 0.3 per cent and 3.4 per cent.
