The 2021 Audi Q5 crossover puts a new face on a best-selling formula that doesn’t show signs of getting old.

PROS
Chiseled looks
Great base engine…
…compelling performance engine too
Good standard safety features
Good touchscreen

CONS
Interior is a little bland
Plug-in hybrid fizzled for us
Not exactly revolutionary
Gets expensive in a hurry

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Pros
Feels very well-built
Lots of space for four
Comfortable and quiet

Cons
Not exciting to drive
Costly optional packs
Rear middle seat uncomfortable

By: 
carwow.co.uk

No significant changes for 2021.

Pros
Turbocharged 500-hp V8 moves the SQ8 with authority
Four-wheel steering keeps the big SUV feeling nimble
Surprisingly comfortable given its performance bent
Stylish, distinctive exterior

Cons
Infotainment system can be distracting to use
Driver's seat has few adjustments
Limited interior storage

By:

For its sophomore year, the SQ8 soldiers on with only one change: It now comes standard with a built-in toll-road-payment transmission feature.Upgrading to the Prestige trim costs $5500 but adds a host of driver-assistance and luxury features, such as adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, a head-up display with navigation guidance, fancier LED exterior lighting elements, soft-close doors, headlamp washers, heated rear seats, and power rear sunshades. If none of that sounds particularly important to you, save the cash and go with the Premium Plus. All SQ8 models come with the best performance-enhancing features Audi can throw at them, so no matter which one you choose, you're getting the same driving experience.

PROS
Powerful V-8 engine,
high-quality interior trimmings,
aggressive exterior design.

CONS
Some may regret not going with the RS Q8,
braking performance could be better,
thirsty powertrain.

Pros
Sports-car fast
Posh and spacious interior
Plenty of infotainment tech

Cons
Alternatives are more fun to drive
Cheaper Q8 50TDI makes more sense
Petrol-powered alternatives are more dramatic
