For $38,025, the 2009 Audi Q5 arrives in showrooms outfitted with a plethora of standard features.

Automobile Magazine lists standard features as “power seats, windows, and locks; leather upholstery, a ten-speaker stereo, 60/40-split rear seats that recline and also slide fore and aft by four inches; and a new-and-improved version of Audi's MMI, or Multi-Media Interface, system that controls climate, radio, and navigation functions through a central knob and a display screen.” Regarding the MMI system, MotherProof says it “is easier and more intuitive than ever. It even understands voice commands, including statements like, 'I need coffee.’”

Motor Trend states that other available features include LED taillamps; full leather seating; "a 180-watt, 10-speaker sound system with iPod and Bluetooth synchronization; heated and ventilated front seats; a thermal heated/cooled cupholder; and a roof-rack sensor that signals the Q5 to adjust its suspension dynamics when the rack's crossmember is deployed.”

According to Automobile Magazine, “Audi of America plans two major options packages plus a number of stand-alone options. The first options package will include bi-xenon headlights and a power-operated tailgate, among other items. (Cornering headlights will not be offered.) The second options package will offer keyless start, a blind-spot detection system, nineteen-inch wheels, and a 14-speaker, 504-watt, Bang & Olufsen stereo system.”

TheCarConnection.com’s Premium Plus Q5 adds $4,300 for a panoramic sunroof, a power tailgate, power heated seats, Bluetooth connectivity, an iPhone/iPod interface, and a six-CD changer. MotherProof’s Q5 also comes with the Premium Plus package: “A power-sliding sunshade covers as much or as little of the sunroof as you like. The Q5 almost feels like a convertible when the sunroof is open. Surprisingly, the wind buffeting isn’t too bad, at least at moderate speeds.”

Motor Trend notes that stand-alone options include "bi-Xenon headlamps; a power tailgate; the largest sunroof in class; sideview assist; 19-in. wheels; Audi Drive Select; and a 505-watt Bang & Olufsen sound system with 14 speakers and digital radio reception. The S-Line will ride on 20-inchers, also available with a chrome finish.”

Conclusion

Bluetooth’s an option, but standard Sirius and available iPod connections give the 2009 Audi Q5 a state-of-the-art set of SUV features.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
