Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The GV80 is a brand-new entrant into the mid-size luxury SUV marketplace. It will go on sale in summer 2020 as a 2021 model.

Pros
Lovely interior ambience,
standard high-tech features,
agile handling.

Cons
Cramped third-row passenger space,
no diesel engine for the U.S.,
heavily weighted steering feel.

The gorgeous 2021 Genesis GV80 could pass for a six-figure SUV.

Pros
Handsome exterior
Sumptuous interior
Supremely quiet
Roomy rear seats
Attention to detail

Cons
Console dial confusion
Insecure active lane control
Infotainment dial
Touchscreen distance

The Genesis GV80 is finally on local roads, and it's hard not to be impressed by the new luxury flagship. It's a segment that Genesis needs to succeed in, too.

Pros
Choice of engines and match with eight-speed are excellent
Execution of the design and the cabin is first-rate
Styling provides a real point of difference

Cons
Lane-departure system is a little too enthusiastic on country roads
Two-spoke steering wheel takes some getting used to
Third row is still tight despite the GV80's size

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: 
caradvice.com.au

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:

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
