As Audi’s most high priced crossover on sale nevertheless, the 2021 Q8 is by itself on Mount Flagship. The good news is, it’s a cozy spot to be.

This calendar year, not a great deal alterations for the Q8. It is even now loaded with tech and conveniences, and effectiveness variations heap on all of the over, smothered in further horsepower.

It is an 8 for attributes many thanks to good conventional equipment, a good touchscreen, and gee-whiz attributes to woo buyers.

Like previous calendar year, the Q8 is readily available in Top quality, Top quality In addition, and Status trim degrees and commences at $sixty nine,195, such as spot. Top rated trims command more than $80,000 when loaded with solutions, and the larger-horsepower SQ8 commences at more than $90,000 for Top quality In addition models—it runs to 6 figures virtually as swiftly as it runs to 60 mph. The even larger-horsepower RS Q8 commences at more than $113,000 and doesn’t appear back.

The Q8 Top quality wishes for little and is equipped with twenty-inch wheels, a twelve.three-inch electronic instrument cluster, 10.one-inch touchscreen, 8.6-inch touchscreen for car functions and weather controls, wi-fi Apple CarPlay compatibility, Bluetooth, a panoramic sunroof, active security attributes, leather-based upholstery, wood trim, and navigation.

There is little else we could question for, but there is a little white area involving Top quality and Status products that we’d sidle into comfortably. We suggest the Q8 Top quality In addition products 21-inch wheels (c’mon, you are not going off road in any case), 4-zone weather regulate, uprated headlights, high quality audio, a encompass-check out digicam method, and readily available driver assistance attributes that can lower tiredness on long drives or stupendously tedious commutes. Bundled in a new government package deal that includes these driver-guide attributes are rear seat heaters and leather-based upholstered armrests depend us in. An optional air suspension is readily available on Q8 Top quality In addition products (conventional on SQ8 and RS Q8), and we suggest it, also. That places our advisable Q8 at more than $75,000 simply because we know how to take care of ourselves.

Audi’s conventional 4-calendar year/fifty,000-mile warranty is reasonably generous but doesn’t consist of complimentary servicing. Shucks.
