NEW DELHI: Automaker Citroen India on Tuesday said it will increase the price of its premium SUV C5 Aircross by up to 3 per cent from January next year to offset the impact of rising input costs.

The effective price increase will be up to 3 per cent on the existing ex-showroom prices of the Feel and Shine variants of the model, the automaker said in a statement.

A continued rise in the cost of commodities and ocean freight costs has necessitated this price increase of the vehicle, it added.

The price of C5 Aircross currently starts at Rs 31.3 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

Some carmakers such as Maruti Suzuki and luxury automakers Audi and Mercedes-Benz have already announced a hike in vehicle prices from next month.

The country's largest carmaker Maruti Suzuki informed that the price hike planned for January 2022 will vary for different models, while Mercedes-Benz said its hike will be on select models by up to 2 per cent due to feature enhancement and rising input costs.
