As Audi’s most pricey crossover on sale but, the 2021 Q8 is by itself on Mount Flagship. Luckily, it is a snug put to be.
This 12 months, not considerably adjustments for the Q8. It’s nevertheless loaded with tech and conveniences, and overall performance variations heap on all of the earlier mentioned, smothered in further horsepower.
It’s an eight for attributes many thanks to superior regular equipment, a superior touchscreen, and gee-whiz attributes to woo potential buyers.
Like very last 12 months, the Q8 is out there in Premium, Premium As well as, and Prestige trim amounts and starts at $69,195, including location. Prime trims command much more than $eighty,000 when loaded with solutions, and the bigger-horsepower SQ8 starts at much more than $90,000 for Premium As well as models—it runs to 6 figures almost as speedily as it runs to sixty mph. The even bigger-horsepower RS Q8 starts at much more than $113,000 and does not glance again.
The Q8 Premium needs for tiny and is geared up with twenty-inch wheels, a twelve.three-inch digital instrument cluster, ten.1-inch touchscreen, eight.six-inch touchscreen for motor vehicle functions and local climate controls, wireless Apple CarPlay compatibility, Bluetooth, a panoramic sunroof, active basic safety attributes, leather upholstery, wood trim, and navigation.
There is tiny else we could talk to for, but there is a tiny white area between Premium and Prestige products that we’d sidle into comfortably. We advocate the Q8 Premium As well as products 21-inch wheels (c’mon, you are not going off road in any case), 4-zone local climate control, uprated headlights, premium audio, a surround-view camera process, and out there driver assistance attributes that can cut down tiredness on extensive drives or stupendously unexciting commutes. Incorporated in a new executive deal that incorporates people driver-aid attributes are rear seat heaters and leather upholstered armrests count us in. An optional air suspension is out there on Q8 Premium As well as products (regular on SQ8 and RS Q8), and we advocate it, too. That puts our encouraged Q8 at much more than $75,000 simply because we know how to take care of ourselves.
Audi’s regular four-12 months/fifty,000-mile guarantee is reasonably generous but does not involve complimentary upkeep. Shucks.
