Hyundai cars ready for shipment are parked at a port in the southern Indian city of Chennai October 1, 2013. A surprise increase in interest rates and rising car prices in September have tempered hopes for a turnaround in India's struggling autos sector, with some analysts pushing back forecasts for a sustained recovery to next financial year.
