Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Audi SQ8 adds a heady dose of diesel performance to the regular Q8's style-led form, creating a compelling new variant in the Audi Sport range.

Pros
Enticing low rpm performance
Impressive dynamics for the size
Comfortable and quiet as a family SUV...
But able to transform itself when asked to angry-up

Cons
Not different enough from a cheaper Q8 inside
Minor wind noise interruption at highway speeds
Hides its size well on the open road, but not on city streets

The SQ8 is new for 2020.Kicks off the first SQ8 generation.

Pros
Twin-turbo 500-hp V8 moves the SQ8 with authority
Four-wheel steering keeps the big SUV feeling nimble
48-volt hybrid system provides added acceleration from a standstill

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

Put simply, the Audi SQ8 is one of the fastest diesel-powered SUV in the world and can be had with loads of high-tech kit. Sadly, lots of these features are reserved for top-spec Vorsprung cars.

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

The 2020 Armada carries over mostly unchanged except for a new standard feature and a newly optional package. Every model now has heated exterior mirrors. Also, the Armada is now available with a 22-inch Wheel package that adds uniquely style 22-inch wheels wrapped in all-season tires.

Pros
Tranquil cabin environment,
upscale styling,
mighty powertrain and tow rating.

Cons
Not exactly fuel efficient,
obsolete infotainment system,
overly light steering.
