Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

From the outside, the Mulliner is distinguished by its two-tone paint, chrome grilles in the lower fascia, color-matched lower bodywork, and 22-inch Paragon wheels with weighted centers that always display the Bentley logo upright. (The two-tone paint treatment, however, also will be offered on regular Bentaygas.)
Inside, the Mulliner continues to set itself apart with two-tone leather seating, a refrigerated compartment in the rear center console that also features storage for a pair of Cumbria Crystal flutes, customizable ambient lighting in 15 colors, illuminated sill plates, and special wood veneers that fade from burr walnut to black as they wrap around the cabin.

It's big, it's brash, it's heavy and it's officially the world's fastest SUV. Meet the Bentley Bentayga Speed.

Pros
It's the world's fastest SUV with a 306km/h top speed
Unique Alcantara upholstery is not only exquisite but holds you steady on track
Better throttle response and keener steering make this a more exciting Bentayga without any compromise to ride comfort in standard ride modes

Cons
You'll need a keen eye to spot the Speed over the standard W12 bar the badges
Styling will still be too discrete for some
Sports exhaust is optional as are carbon-ceramic brakes

By: 
caradvice.com.au

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.

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
