Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Pros
Handles very well for its size
Impressively comfortable too
Loads of infotainment tech

Cons
Muted engine sounds
Auto gearbox isn't the best
Lots of expensive optional extras

By:

Audi has made no changes to the RS Q8 for 2021.

Pros
Mega-powerful V-8 engine,
nimble chassis,
styling is more restrained than the mechanically similar Lambo Urus.

Cons
Slower and more expensive than the RS6 Avant,
brake feel isn't particularly confidence inspiring,
not quite as poised as a Porsche.

The RS Q8 is unchanged for 2021.

Pros
Turbo V8 delivers devastating straight-line performance
Nimble, lively handling puts most sports cars to shame
Comfortable, well-trimmed interior

Cons
Infotainment system can be distracting to use
Limited interior storage
Less practical than the related Q7

By:

The BMW X6 has powerful engines and a luxurious, high-tech cabin. You’ll forgo some space and practicality versus a BMW X5 though, and spend more doing it.

Pros
SUVs don’t come much quicker
Fantastic infotainment system
Impressive interior quality

Cons
X5 equivalent has better rear headroom
Audi RS Q8 is easier on the eyes
Smaller boot than every alternative

By: 
carwow.co.uk

The X6 M enters the 2021 model year with only the smallest of changes. The list of standard features grows with the addition of Android Auto and a one-year subscription to SiriusXM satellite radio with 360L. However, the M's roster of standalone options has been shortened with the elimination of night vision with pedestrian detection, the rear-seat entertainment system, and the satin aluminum roof rails and exterior trim. BMW also changes the Competition designation from a model to a package.

Pros
Transcendent SUV performance,
stocked with popular standard features,
sumptuous cabin space.

Cons
Compromised rear visibility,
rough ride on some roads,
pricier than the more practical X5 M.

By: 
caranddriver.com

For 2021 Now available with Android Auto smartphone integration.Minor changes to feature availability and option packages.

Pros
Massive power from its turbocharged V8
Impressive handling performance
High-quality interior packed with features

Cons
Stiff and sometimes unyielding ride
Distinctive styling limits rear headroom and cargo capacity
Compromised rear visibility
