This is according to a calculation done by TopAuto.
Audi’s latest Q5 has been updated with a sportier look and more technology – and now starts at R852,000.
A flatter grille, larger trapezoidal air intakes, new LED daytime running lights, a new side sill, and a redesigned rear diffuser have also been included on the SUV.
The specification lines on offer are then: Standard, Advanced, and S Line – with the SQ5 packing a 3.0-litre, V6, petrol engine.
This motor produces 260kW and 500Nm, and takes the car to 100km/h in 5.4 seconds.
On the inside, Audi also made few changes to the Q5’s cabin.
The rotary control knob on the centre console has been removed, while the body’s width and height are identical to the previous model.
