Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The ultimate Audi crossover is convincingly sporty and properly useful.

Pros
Suave and tech-savvy cabin,
sporty and comfy ride,
more useful than Audi sedans.

Cons
Pricier than the more pragmatic Q7,
distracting touchscreens,
less fun to drive than Audi sedans.

The Audi Q8 is a luxurious, comfortable SUV but it isn't as sporty as its looks suggest, nor is it as practical as a Q7.

Pros
Imposing looks
Indulgent interior
Advanced technology

Cons
Numb handling
Limited versatility
Unproven ride comfort

By:

Audi's Q7 is undoubtedly a practical three-row SUV, but maybe you find it to be a bit plain Jane when compared against sleeker rivals such as the Land Rover Range Rover or Porsche Cayenne.

Pros
Comes well-equipped with many standard features
Comfortable ride and seats for all passengers
High-quality cabin
Front and rear seats offer all-day comfort

Cons
Less practical than the related Q7
New infotainment system can be distracting to use
Throttle response is too slow in the default driving mode
Limited interior storage space
