For the next coupe of days we’ll be rolling around in a 2009 Audi Q5 3.2 quattro Triptronic. Starting MSRP for the 2009 Audi Q5 comes in at $37,200; however, our test-drive vehicle is priced at $52,950 with an $11,000 Prestige Package.
Is the Prestige Package really worth $11,000? Well, it all depends. If things like a Panorama sunroof, xenon plus lights, power tailgate, heated front seats, driver side memory, 19-inch wheels are important to you – than yes, $11,000 is worth it. Oh, and let’s not forget, the Prestige Package also includes Audi’s mmi navigation system – which we’ll get to later on this week.
Power for the 2009 Audi Q5 comes from a 3.2L V6 that produces 270-hp mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission with Triptronic and Audi’s quattro all-wheel-drive system.
As usual, make sure you ask us questions about the Q5 throughout the week. We’ll provide you daily updates and answer as many questions as we can during our test-drive. Look out for the full review next week.
