Pros

Awesome off-road capabilities

Cons

Land Rover is introducing a V-8 engine into the Defender lineup for 2022: the 518-hp Supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 that's found in the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport models. The V-8 will be available on both the two-door 90 and four-door 110 models; a high-end Carpathian Edition model will also sport the V-8 engine.

Pros
Ultra-capable off-road,
surprisingly refined on-road,
well-equipped interior.

Cons
Disappointing fuel economy,
desirable features carry high price tags,
six-cylinder isn't as quick as we'd hoped.

By:

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

By: 
carwow.co.uk

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.

By:

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
