For, Hyundai Motor India Limited (HMIL) has announced that it will hike prices of cars by 2 per cent across its model range from January 2018. This will increase ex-showroom prices of Hyundai cars in India in the range of Rs 6,580 to Rs 50,380. The price hike will affect all Hyundai models including the Eon, Grand i10, Elite i20, i20 Active, Xcent, Elantra, Creta and the Tucson, as well as the recently announced Indian Car of the Year, 2017 Hyundai Verna.
