Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Infiniti has reconfigured the QX80 lineup to include a new mid-range Premium Select trim and a high-end Sensory model for 2021. It also added standard driver-assistance features such as adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assist. The QX80 Premium Select wears unique styling elements, including dark-chrome exterior trim, 22-inch wheels, and matte-brown interior embellishments with either a Sahara Stone or Truffle Brown color scheme.

Pros
Handsome styling,
standard V-8 power,
plush and spacious cabin.

Cons
Seems outdated compared with rivals,
Nissan Armada is almost as luxurious,
poor fuel economy.

Pros
Burly V8 engine
Surefooted handling

Pros
Powerful V8 engine delivers strong acceleration and a high tow rating
Commendable handling and braking for a big SUV

Cons
Interior design lags behind luxury competition
Engine is thirstier than others in the class
Optional 22-inch wheels can make for a poor ride

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
