Toyota Innova Crysta, Fortuner Prices Hiked Post Cess Increase

September 14 2017

Prices for the Innova have shot up by up to Rs 78,000, while the Fortuner’s prices have increased by a massive sum of Rs 1,60,000

Effective from September 12, Toyota Kirloskar Motor has announced a price hike across its portfolio – the Innova Crysta, Fortuner, Corolla and the Etios - following the decision of the GST council to increase cess on mid-size cars, luxury cars and SUVs. The Japanese automaker decided to share the increased burden of prices with its customers after the cess went up by 2-7 per cent. The good news is that hybrids (Camry) and small cars (Etios Liva) are kept out of this price rise.

Here’s a look at the approximate price rise including the newly added cess (all prices ex-showroom Delhi):

CAR NAME

PRE CESS

POST CESS (EXPECTED PRICES)

Toyota Fortuner

Rs 24.41 – 29.18 lakh

Rs 26.01 – 30.78 lakh

Toyota Innova Crysta

Rs 13.30 – 20.78 lakh

Rs 14.08 – 21.56 lakh

Toyota Corolla Altis

Rs 14.88 – 18.67 lakh

Rs 15.60 – 19.39 lakh

Toyota Etios

Rs 6.66 – 8.60 lakh

Rs 6.79 – 8.73 lakh

The prices of the Toyota Etios will go up by Rs 13,000, while the MPV, the Innova Crysta will see prices rise by Rs 78,000 across its variants. Prices for Toyota’s mid-size sedan, the Corolla Altis will be hiked by Rs 72,000, whereas Toyota Fortuner buyers will have to shell out a huge sum of Rs 1.60 lakh more than the previous prices.

However, it’s not all over for Toyota car buyers. Despite this price rise, buyers can still enjoy the GST price cut benefits though by a lesser amount now. For instance, after the GST came into effect on July 1, 2017, the Etios’ price was reduced by Rs 23,000 (base variant). After the implementation of the additional cess of Rs 13,000, the customer would actually benefit by Rs 10,000 on its base variant. Have a look at the gains that you can still enjoy on Toyota cars post cess hike.
