Stonking acceleration from the twin-turbo V-8,
smoothest start-stop system around,
impressive ride and handling balance.

Lazy transmission tuning,
properly expensive,
heavier and less involving than a similarly capable sports sedan or wagon.

The Audi Q8 is a two-row SUV that radiates sportiness and luxuriousness.

Pros
Athletic enough to satisfy enthusiasts,
refined enough to coddle passengers,
great mix of luxury and technology.

Cons
Lower touchscreen can divert attention,
feels sluggish in city driving,
people-and-cargo room sacrificed to style.
