Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For those needing the performance of a supercar and the space and comfort of a family SUV, the Audi RS Q8 is quite possibly the perfect solution.

Pros
Stunning performance
Glorious engine sound
Superb ride
Interior comfort and space

Cons
48V 'mild hybrid' not a hybrid
Steering lacks a little feel
2.3 tonnes is a lot of weight to hustle through corners

By:

The RS Q8 is a new addition to the Q8 lineup for 2020.
Audi is going after the AMGs and BMW Ms of the world with the new RS version of its Q8 mid-size SUV. The 2020 Audi RS Q8 comes standard with a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 engine making 591 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque, with standard Quattro all-wheel drive to put all that power to the ground and an upgraded suspension and brakes to ensure it handles and stops as well as it goes. It looks a lot more aggressive than the standard Q8, too, thanks to 22-inch wheels, a wider body, and a rear spoiler. It will go on sale in the U.S. sometime in 2020.

2020 Audi RS Q8 will undoubtedly be a huge hit in the segment.With Lamborghini-esque power under the hood and the very latest Audi refinement in the cabin, it brings all the good stuff needed to run against the top competitors from BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Porsche.

Pros
More aggressive styling
Lamborghini engine under the hood
Impressively quick for a big SUV

Cons
How will it ride compared to the Merc and Bimmer?
Competition isn’t slowing down anytime soon
Might steal a few sales from the Lambo

PROS
Convenient size should fit many families
Ample feature content for the money
Stylish and high-class interior
Extra-long warranty coverage

CONS
Base four-cylinder engine is underpowered
Third-row seat is strictly for kids
Less cargo space than other three-row models

The 2019 Kia Sorento is a right-sized, well-priced three-row crossover SUV for those who can skimp a little on third-row space.

Terrific ride quality
Responsive, natural steering
High value
Solid, quiet feel

Cons
Second row sits too low
Turbo-4 engine bites the dust for 2019
Don’t bother with the base engine
