2021 Audi Q8 Review

Overview
Practical. Dynamic. Versatile. Innovative. The Audi Q8 is everything you want in a luxury-performance SUV. It’s not just ready to go wherever you need to go it’s ready to go wherever you want to go. The Q8 is available in Premium Premium Plus and top-of-the-line Prestige trims. High-performance SQ8 and RS Q8 versions are available too. From its driver-focused cockpit to its turbocharged engine the Q8 combines luxury and performance. Quattro all-wheel drive adds confidence and the available 48-Volt Mild Hybrid system adds efficiency and power. Every Q8 comes with a hands-free tailgate panoramic sunroof and enough room inside for five passengers or over 60 cubic feet of cargo. It’s ready for a date at the country club—or a trip to the cabin. And from Audi MMI Navigation Plus to Audi Pre Sense driver-assistance features every Q8 comes with technology that connects and protects you. Choose from a variety of colors options and Audi Genuine Accessories5 and build a Q8 that’s all yours. The Audi Q8. It’s your place of quiet confidence.
Technology
The Audi Q8 is loaded with technology. Whether you use Apple CarPlay or Android Auto Audi MMI Touch Response brings your compatible smartphone to a 10.1-inch screen. Natural Language Voice Control adds even more convenience. Audi Connect links your Q8 to the world. Find gas parking spots the best route to avoid traffic and more. Instead of a traditional gauge cluster every Q8 comes with a customizable 12.3-inch digital display. Called Audi Virtual Cockpit it displays Google Earth the song you’re listening to and more—and of course your gauges. The Audi Q8. All the technology you need.
Safety
The Audi Q8 was built with the greatest luxury in mind—safety. Standard Audi Pre Sense driver-awareness features help prepare seat-belts and windows for imminent front-end collisions. It can initiate visual and acoustic warnings—and when needed it can even apply emergency braking. Take the stress out of rush hour with available Audi Adaptive Cruise Assist. It even works during traffic jams. Available Intersection Assist monitors cross traffic at intersections alerting you to oncoming vehicles and applying the brakes if necessary. The Audi Q8. Because no luxury is more important than safety.
Performance
When it comes to performance the Audi Q8 delivers. Q8 models come with a turbocharged V-6 and SQ8 models get a twin-turbocharged V-8. Both come with 48-Volt Mild Hybrid technology for added power and efficiency. Or go all out with the brilliant 591-horse RS Q8. Whichever you choose it comes with Audi quattro All-Wheel Drive and can tow up to 7 700 pounds. Add Audi Drive Select available Audi Adaptive Air Suspension and available All-Wheel Steering your Q8 can handle just about anything. The Audi Q8. This is high-performing luxury.
