Indian car maker Maruti and American Car giant General Motors have given a hike to car prices by up to Rs 17,000. The hike was impending in January and the industry has been forecasting it since December following the rise in commodity prices and fall in the value of rupee. With this the prices of Chevrolet Spark, Chevrolet Tavera and Chevrolet Cruze besides the best selling Chevrolet Beat Diesel have witnessed an increase from Rs 3000 to Rs 15,000.  Compared to Maruti, GM India has only hiked the prices between 0.5 per cent and 1.75 per cent for its offerings in India.
