Audi Q5 headed for U.S. showroomsFri, 06 Feb 2009 00:00:00 -0800
It will take just a bit more than $38,000 to get into Audi's 2009 Q5 all-wheel-drive crossover.
Audi has set the sticker price for the Q5 Premium, which is the starter trim level, at $38,025 including shipping charges.
There are two steps up the trim-level ladder--the Premium Plus, which stickers for $42,325, and the Prestige, which carries a bottom line of $49,025.
All Q5s are powered by 3.2-liter V6s mated to six-speed automatic transmissions and Audi's quattro all-wheel drive.
Among the goodies on the Q5 equipment list are three-zone climate control and a 40-20-40 split rear seat that reclines and moves fore and aft.
The options list includes a Bang & Olufsen sound system and Audi's navigation system, with its third-generation multimedia interface.
Audi says the Q5 starts arriving in dealerships next week.
