Audi's Q5 and Q7 SUVs may offer the most streamlined trim levels and packages in its U.S. portfolio. A good thing considering the Audi released 2012 pricing.
The Q5 line's base model is powered by Audi's 2.0T with the Tiptronic transmission connecting it to Quattro all-wheel drive. Prices range from $35,600 for Premium to $39,900 for Premium Plus. The only other drivetrain option for the Q5 is the naturally-aspirated 3.2 V-6. Premium Plus is the base package and starts at $43,000. Adding the top-line Prestige package to the V-6 brings the total up to $50,100.
Audi's top level SUV, the Q7, starts at $46,250 and features Quattro standard. Adding the Premium Plus package adds another $6300 to the bottom line. The only way to get the Prestige package in the gas-powered Q7 is by stepping up to the S line for a grand total of $59,950. The clean diesel 3.0 TDI model starts at $51,450 and tops out at $63,950.
