Audi Q8 – SUV’s now account for nearly 50% of new car sales each year, mostly in the smaller and mid-sized segments. But this week Rob Fraser lets us know about the Audi Q8
I have to admit I love driving large SUVs and Audi’s new Q8 is a beauty.
Sitting on the same architecture as the Lamborghini Urus, Bentley Bentayga and more, the Q8 comes with a choice of a powerful diesel or petrol engine and an extensive standard features list.
Add to this a beautiful design, typical Audi interior and a balance of ride and handling that will make some manufacturers go back to the drawing board. Oh and for the audiophiles there is a stunning Bang and Olufsen audio system.
We tested the 3.0L V6 55 TFSI with an eight speed tiptronic transmission, quattro drivetrain, adaptive air suspension and a drive select program that engages the driver.
Priced from just under $130,000 plus the usual extras and options, its actually good value.
