Audi to push up prices by 2% across range
The price increase will affect all new customer orders from 25 May – new customer orders placed up to, and including, 24 May will be fixed at currently advertised 2010 model year prices.
Among the core models in the Audi range, the three-door A3 and five-door A3 Sportback hatchbacks are subject to an increase of 1.9%, the A4 Saloon and Avant rise by 2.4% (in SE form) and the A6 Saloon and Avant by 2.0%.
A5 Sportback, Coupe and Cabriolet models increase by 2.5%, 2.4% and 2.2%, Q5 and Q7 by 2.0% and 0.6%, TT Coupe and Roadster by 0.9% and R8 V8 and V10 by 3.0%. Recently announced prices for the A1 hatchback, the R8 Spyder, the RS 5 Coupe and the A8 remain as before.
However, Audi says that the price rises will in some cases be partially offset by specification improvements and also points out that some models, such as the TT range and the Q7, have gained new engines while the Q5 has added an engine start-stop system for four-cylinder models.
