For the past few quarters, inflation has been ruling the news headlines and it is impacting everything, from cost of essentials to cost of some of the most desirable diesel car models in the country.
In a fresh round of price hike, Toyota has increased prices of 4 of its key models. These include the Innova, Fortuner (Standard, Legender and GR-S variants), Camry HEV and Vellfire HEV. Thankfully, other relatively economical models like Glanza, Urban Cruiser and recently launched Urban Cruiser HyRyder have been kept out of the spectrum of current price hike.
