When the budget for this year had come out, we knew it meant most cars (save for those below four metres in length with engines smaller than 1.2-litres) were going to get more expensive than they already are.
One of the first manufacturers to announce an increase in price is Mercedes-Benz India. Growing input costs and the revised tax structure is the the reason for the increases in price.
For their locally produced models, there will be a rise of 1-4 % but the ones that are really hit are the CBUs, some of which will end up costing a whopping 20% more!
These new prices are effective from 1st April 2013, so get your CBU Mercedes-Benzes before the price rise!
