2021 Audi Q8 Review, Ratings, Specs, Prices, and Photos

As Audi’s most high-priced crossover on sale nevertheless, the 2021 Q8 is alone on Mount Flagship. Fortunately, it’s a at ease location to be.

This 12 months, not a lot variations for the Q8. It is nonetheless loaded with tech and conveniences, and performance variations heap on all of the over, smothered in added horsepower.

It is an eight for attributes thanks to great conventional tools, a great touchscreen, and gee-whiz attributes to woo customers.

Like final 12 months, the Q8 is readily available in Premium, Premium Moreover, and Prestige trim concentrations and begins at $69,195, together with vacation spot. Major trims command extra than $80,000 when loaded with possibilities, and the higher-horsepower SQ8 begins at extra than $ninety,000 for Premium Moreover models—it runs to six figures practically as speedily as it runs to 60 mph. The even higher-horsepower RS Q8 begins at extra than $113,000 and doesn’t appear again.

The Q8 Premium wants for minimal and is outfitted with 20-inch wheels, a twelve.3-inch electronic instrument cluster, ten.1-inch touchscreen, eight.six-inch touchscreen for automobile capabilities and climate controls, wireless Apple CarPlay compatibility, Bluetooth, a panoramic sunroof, active protection attributes, leather-based upholstery, wooden trim, and navigation.

There is minimal else we could check with for, but there’s a minimal white area involving Premium and Prestige styles that we’d sidle into easily. We recommend the Q8 Premium Moreover styles 21-inch wheels (c’mon, you are not heading off street anyway), 4-zone climate command, uprated headlights, premium audio, a surround-view digicam procedure, and readily available driver aid attributes that can decrease exhaustion on extensive drives or stupendously unexciting commutes. Included in a new government offer that incorporates people driver-assist attributes are rear seat heaters and leather-based upholstered armrests rely us in. An optional air suspension is readily available on Q8 Premium Moreover styles (conventional on SQ8 and RS Q8), and we recommend it, much too. That places our recommended Q8 at extra than $seventy five,000 simply because we know how to treat ourselves.

Audi’s conventional four-12 months/50,000-mile warranty is reasonably generous but doesn’t include complimentary routine maintenance. Shucks.
