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

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.

By:

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 2020 Cadillac Escalade is ripe for a redesign, so check out rivals before making a call.

Pros
In-your-face design
V-8 thrust
Comfortable interior
Good towing ability

Cons
Ride not as composed as rivals
Curiously cramped for passengers
So, so thirsty
Too in-your-face for most

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Fully redesigned for 2021.More interior space, especially for rear passengers.New driver aids, including Cadillac's Super Cruise.

Pros
An extensive suite of standard and optional driver safety aids
Optional diesel engine a class-exclusive
Significantly more interior space than outgoing model
New interior design is among best in the class

Cons
Lacks off-road prowess of some rivals
Large footprint makes it difficult to park

By: 
edmunds.com

From its massive displays to its independent rear suspension, Cadillac's redesigned Escalade is a supersized icon of luxurious extravagance.

Pros
All the tech bits GM offers,
lovely interior,
status ensured.

Cons
Look-at-me styling,
overly aggressive stability control,
a loaded Suburban or Yukon XL is a far better deal.
