Audi Q8 - Consumer Reports

Current Model
This five-seat, coupelike SUV is based on the Q7 but is wider and lower. Some functionality such as access and visibility 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 and 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 FCW and AEB with pedestrian detection, BSW, and rear cross traffic warning. An RS Q8 super-high-performance version with a twin turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine is also available.
