Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Having reviewed the GX, this time we take a look at the 2021 Toyota Fortuner GXL. It's a rugged 4WD that positions itself as the default family option for those whose budget can't stretch to the Prado.

Pros
Ride quality is excellent on any road surface
Power and torque increases translate to the real world
Cabin ergonomics are solid and build quality is robust

Cons
Needs more power outlets, especially in the second row
Third row should be viewed as occasional only
GXL is a steep climb in price from the GX, which remains solid value

PROS
Gutsier updated diesel engine
Nicer screen, now gets phone mirroring
Toyota's most affordable proper 4x4

Cons
Clumsy third-row seat stowage
Firm, sometimes unsettled ride
Short six-month service intervals

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:

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
