"With the rupee depreciation and rising inflation, we have increased the prices of Camry Petrol and Fortuner. The prices have been increased by one percent," Sandeep Singh, deputy managing director and chief operating officer, was quoted as saying in the statement.
"The market is still sluggish, however we hope to see the market improve with good monsoons and the upcoming festive season," he added.
