Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E electric crossover needs to not only live up to its historic name, but it also needs to point Ford’s future direction.

PROS
All-electric powertrain
Captivating looks
Up to 300 miles of range
Thrilling performance promises
A new Mustang for a new generation

CONS
Will it live up to its name?
How small is the rear seat?
How will that big tablet work?
Small-ish range on base versions

The 2021 Mustang Mach-E is Ford's first all-electric crossover, and it was designed and named after the company's iconic pony car. The Mach-E also pays homage to the "Mach 1" moniker that has been used on high-performance Mustangs of old. Ford said it went with the name because it needed the electrified crossover to be as desirable as a Tesla to usher in its new era of electric vehicles.When the 2021 Mustang Mach-E finally goes on sale, we'd choose the Premium model. It's expected to provide 300 miles of driving range when paired with the extended-range battery and rear-wheel drive, but we'd still choose the all-wheel-drive version, which knocks its estimated range down to 270 miles. Compared with the base model, the Mach-E Premium has more powerful fast-charging capability, 19-inch wheels, a Band & Olufsen sound system, a panoramic sunroof, and a power liftgate.

PROS
Attention-grabbing design,
handsome and hushed cabin,
instantaneous acceleration.

CONS
Not particularly engaging to drive,
most range ratings are modest,
Mustang purists will miss the V-8 traits.

The first Ford designed specifically to be an electric vehicle.Available hands-free automated driving system.Choice of rear- or all-wheel drive and two battery sizes.Launches the first Mustang Mach-E generation for 2021.

PROS
Larger 98.8-kWh battery pack should provide 300 miles on a charge
Decisive thrust of a pure EV
New Sync 4A infotainment allows for multiple driver profiles
Upcoming GT Performance version boasts 459 horsepower

CONS
Infotainment system is menu-heavy and takes time to learn

By:

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

By:

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

By: 
edmunds.com

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
