The company, however, did not specify by how much the prices of its vehicles would increase.
At present, the company is working out the range, a company official said.
"The cost of company's vehicles has been impacted adversely due to increase in commodity prices and foreign exchange rates," Maruti Suzuki India said in a regulatory filing.
It further said, "Hence, it has become imperative for the company to pass on some impact of the above additional cost to customers through a price increase across various models in January 2019."
This price increase shall vary for different models, it added.
At present, Maruti Suzuki sells a range of vehicles starting from entry-level Alto 800 to the premium crossover S-Cross priced between Rs 2.53 lakh and Rs 11.45 lakh.
Yesterday, utility vehicle maker Isuzu Motors India Tuesday said it will hike prices of vehicles by up to Rs 1 lakh from January to offset increasing input and distribution costs.
Last month, Toyota Kirloskar Motor had announced that it would increase prices of vehicles across models by up to 4 percent from January 1, 2019, to offset increasing manufacturing costs due to rupee depreciation.
