The pricing reflects a $25 increase compared to the base 2016 Q5 due to a slight hike in the shipping charge.
The top-of-the-line 2017 Q5 3.0T starts at $54,150, including shipping, and the performance-oriented 2017 Audi SQ5 starts at $54,250, including shipping.
The carryover 2017 Q5 offers more standard equipment for 3.0T Prestige models, including a three-spoke multifunction steering wheel with shift paddles, Audi Drive Select and adaptive cruise control.
All Q5 2.0T Premium Plus models now include 19-inch wheels with all-season tires as standard equipment.
The 2017 SQ5 Prestige models now come with standard dynamic steering.
Edmunds says: Audi holds the line on base 2017 Q5 pricing, which is good news for luxury shoppers in this hot segment.
