MMI is "easier and more intuitive than ever
MotherProof

The 2010 Audi Q5 sidles up to potential buyers stuffed with a plethora of standard features, as well as a few options that can boost its price to nearly $50,000.

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." Audi lists other standard features for 2010 as including Sirius Satellite Radio; LED taillamps; heated power mirrors; wood trim; steering-wheel multifunction controls; and three-zone climate control.

The base Premium edition is augmented by a $42,225 Premium Plus edition that adds "bi-xenon headlights and a power-operated tailgate, among other items," Automobile reports. Audi's music interface with iPod controls and Bluetooth are standard on this edition, as is a HomeLink garage door opener. A $49,675 Prestige edition adds "keyless start, a blind-spot detection system, nineteen-inch wheels, and a 14-speaker, 504-watt, Bang & Olufsen stereo system," Automobile reports.

Automobile also notes on some models, there's 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.'"

MotherProof's crew admires the panoramic sunroof, too: "The Q5 almost feels like a convertible when the sunroof is open," and "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."

Audi's media site lists a handful of new features for the 2010 model year, including 20-inch five-spoke wheels; a Luxury package for Prestige editions that includes more leather trim and ventilated seats; and new "fine grain ash" wood trim.

Conclusion

Bluetooth and iPod connections are options, but availability gives the 2010 Audi Q5 a state-of-the-art set of 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.
