Volkswagen to hike prices from 1st October

German carmaker Volkswagen will hike the prices of its vehicles by up to 2 percent from 1st October, 2022 onwards. The hike in prices is being attributed to a rise in input costs. The hike comes just ahead of the festive season in India, which generally sees a rise in the sales of cars in India.

Volkswagen currently sells the Taigun, Virtus and Tiguan in India.

If you have been thinking about bringing home a Volkswagen, then, you should get moving, as Volkswagen India will be hiking the prices of its models from 1st October 2022 onwards. The company revealed in a statement that the increase in costs is attributed to the rise in input costs of vehicles.

The Taigun is now a year-old model, and this won’t be its first price hike. The Virtus, on the other hand, is a relatively new model, having been launched a couple of months ago, and this will in fact be the first time it undergoes a price hike. The Tiguan is the third and last model in the carmaker’s line-up, and is not only built on a different platform, but also utilises different powertrains.

For your reference, the Volkswagen Taigun is priced between Rs 11.40 lakh and Rs 18.60 lakh, whereas the Virtus is priced between Rs 11.22 lakh and Rs 17.92 lakh. The Tiguan is available in only one variant and it is priced at Rs 32.79 lakh. All prices are ex-showroom.

The Taigun and Virtus are not only similarly priced but they are built on the same MQB A0-IN platform as well. Apart from that, they also share the same engine and transmission options. There is a slight difference in their feature list though.
