How much monthly finance payments are for South Africa’s newest cars

Whether you want to pay R5,000 or R60,000 per month for a new car, November’s vehicle launches have you covered.

Three standout vehicles which were released in the local market this month are the electric Audi e-tron, the Chery Tiggo 4 Pro small SUV, and the Lexus ES 250 luxury sedan.

The Chery Tiggo 4 Pro is aimed at weekend adventurers and starts at R269,900.

At the other end of the spectrum is the Audi e-tron, the latest luxury electric vehicle in the country – which goes up to R3,300,000 for the RS e-tron GT version.

In the middle we have the Lexus ES, with the 250 EX version selling for R719,900.

How much you will pay

To work out how much a prospective buyer will pay per month when buying one of these vehicles using a finance plan, we can use the formula below.

  • Car Price – Vehicle Price
  • Payment Term – 60 terms (5 years)
  • Interest – 9%
  • Deposit – 10%
  • Balloon – No balloon payment
  • Extras – No optional extras

The results of these calculation are detailed below.

Audi e-tron

The “entry-level” Audi e-tron 55 Advanced sells for R1,990,000.

This works out to a monthly finance instalment of R37,200. The total amount of interest you will pay over the contract is then R439,900.

At the top end sits the Audi RS e-tron GT, at R3,300,000

You will pay R61,700 per month in instalments to take this car home – with total interest coming in at R729,400.
