The increase on the Audi Q range SUVs is close to 2.5 percent and the sporty performance range – Audi R8 and Audi RS5 is close to 15 percent. The increase in price is effective from March 16, 2013.
“According to the 2013-14 Union Budget there has been an upward revision in Customs Duty and Excise Duty, based on conditional clause on select models.
