Current Model
This five-seat, coupelike SUV is based on the Q7 but is wider and lower. Some functionality is compromised for the more dynamic styling.
The Q8's 335-hp, 3.0-liter turbocharged V6, with a 48-volt mild-hybrid system, is paired to a smooth eight-speed automatic. It's quiet, luxurious, and among the more sporty-driving SUVs. The dual touch-screen control interface is daunting at first but isn't too difficult to master. The Q8 features standard forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning and lane keeping assistance. For 2021 blind spot warning and rear cross traffic warning are standard. An RS Q8 super-high-performance version with a twin turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine is new.
