Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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

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.
