2019 Audi Q8 Ratings & Reliability
The Q8 is a coupelike SUV based on the Q7, an impressive three-row luxury SUV that is among the best we've tested. The Q8 is wider and lower than the Q7, and it has seating for five passengers. Some cargo versatility and visibility were compromised for the more dynamic styling. The Q8 employs a 335-hp, 3.0-liter turbocharged V6, with a 48-volt mild-hybrid system, mated to a smooth eight-speed automatic. All-wheel drive is standard, and air suspension is optional. The new dual touch-screen control interface is daunting at first but isn't too difficult to master. The Q8 features standard forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, but blind spot warning, rear cross traffic alert, and lane departure warning are optional. More safety features should be standard for a luxury SUV with $67,400 base price.
