Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
The Q8 has the capacity to be almost as smooth, comfortable and easy-going as its Q7 sibling. In Dynamic mode, the car’s steering takes on plenty of weight, its suspension firms up to a taut but not bothersome level. The car changes direction keenly, and although it doesn’t swivel underneath you like the Cayenne can, it has the abundant lateral grip and mid-corner stability you expect of a fast Audi.

Cons
  • No panoramic sunroof
  • Lack of practicality

The Q8 is based on the same MLB Evo architecture that underpins the Porsche Cayenne, Volkswagen Touareg and, of course, the Audi Q7. The 282bhp 3.0-litre diesel V6, designated 50 TDI, remains the only engine presently available to order with this £65,040 Audi. At least until the 335bhp petrol V6 will arrive early next year.

The Q8 60 TFSIe Quattro Competition is a plug-in hybrid version of Audi’s flagship SUV. Instead of buying a conventional V6 petrol engine, you’re committing (for more money) to a powertrain whose main virtue is a 22-to-27-mile electric-only range. This is the seventh modern Audi PHEV to be offered in the UK.

The RS Q8 has the same twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 petrol that serves in the Porsche Cayenne Turbo and Lamborghini Urus. There’s also a 12kW starter/generator that gives the unit mild-hybrid status, plus cylinder deactivation. Drive is transmitted to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic to four-wheel drive that can channel up to 80% of the torque to the back axle.

The SQ8’s air suspension is capable adjusting ride height through 90mm of travel between its lowest and highest settings. That fact, combined with those clever anti-roll bars and the proper, centre-diff based four-wheel drive, ought to make the car pretty capable off road. Those looking for the biggest, loudest, fastest, most exciting bombastic 4x4 for the money should probably apply elsewhere.

The big Audi is a sister model to the Q7 off-roader, and shares its underpinnings. The sleek body is lower, wider and shorter than its more practical stablemate. There's a diesel mild-hybrid and petrol engine available at present, but more engines are to come. All Q8s feature quattro four-wheel drive, along with an eight-speed auto gearbox.

The Q8 is a new flagship for the German brand, positioned above the Q7 as a more stylish and desirable choice. The design centres around the crisp-looking new MMI Touch dual-screen infotainment system, again found elsewhere in the upper echelons of Audi's range. There's plenty of room up front for driver and passenger, and even rear occupants aren't penalised too much by the pert back end.

's no loss of refinement. However, when on a motorway the Cayenne is a little louder inside than the Q8 due to tyre roar. For all this performance and driver appeal, you might think the Porsche sacrifices ride comfort. While the ride isn't perfect, it's smoother more of the time than both of its rivals here.

The new Audi SQ8 TFSI moves away from diesel refinement and frugality, which strengthens its principles as a performance SUV. It's slightly better to drive than the SQ7, but perhaps more importantly it risks making the RS Q8 redundant. It serves up similar straight-line performance as well as greater levels of comfort at a much cheaper price.

The £111,400 super-SUV is as quick as a Porsche 911 and as heavy as a Rolls-Royce Phantom. Everything about the RS Q8 is supersized, from its enormous 23-inch alloy wheels to its 591bhp 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 powerplant. The response from the engine is explosive, while the big SUV's quattro set-up ensures all of that performance is efficiently put down on to the tarmac.

The RS Q8 uses many engineering elements plucked from different areas of the VW Group. chassis is based on the MLB evo platform, while the engine is Audi's own version of the 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8. The chassis features a multi-link layout at each end, with RS-specific adaptive air suspension that changes its characteristics with the drive mode. There's also active roll stabilisation to help keep the big, heavy SUV as flat as possible and therefore more stable through quick corners.

Porsche Cayenne GTS is the only coupé-SUV that delivers genuine driving fun. It's fast, responsive and goes round corners like a car that's half its size and weight. Back-seat space is good, but the sloping roof means that headroom is compromised. It costs more to buy, especially if you add the recommended rear-steer option.

Reviewers from carmagazine have found the following***:
The Q8 feels noticeably more agile and positive ­despite its 2.1-tonne kerbweight (almost 100kg heavier than the Q7) The air suspension deals with all but the worst potholes and bumps with aplomb, only occasionally becoming unsettled as the suspension fails to react in time to large ruts in the road. Legroom is far more generous and is akin to what you get in the back of an A8, while four-zone climate control and heated outer rear seats help keep the back satisfied.

The Q8 on steroids comes with carbon ceramic brakes, quattro sport differential and a deregulated top speed of 190mph, up from 155mph. With Drive Select in Dynamic, overtaking distances shrink to half a dozen car lengths and are more often than not completed in second or third gear. More than anything, this car loves quick esses and multi-lane roundabouts built halfway up a mild slope.

The Audi Q8 is one of the most imposing SUVs on sale. Its huge octagonal grille, piercing two-piece headlights and vast 21-inch alloy wheels make it look more like a naval warship than a Q7. Things feel just as titanic when you step inside. The roof is a little lower than in the Q7, but you won't struggle for headroom unless you're the sort of person who can replace lightbulbs without using a ladder.

The Audi SQ8's cabin looks and feels uber posh. With launch control engaged, this near-2.4-tonne SUV will crack the 0-60mph sprint in less than 4.8 seconds. Standard-fit quattro all-wheel drive means the SQ8 won't be left floundering should you decide to take it across a few muddy fields.

Right now, the Q8 only has one engine on offer, although a hotter SQ8 is likely on the way. The EPA's numbers of 17 miles per gallon city and 22 highway aren't great, but I am able to reach those numbers. Not only is it rewarding to drive, it looks like you're driving the future.

The 2020 Audi SQ8 is an expensive proposition, starting at $89,995 including destination.

The adaptive cruise control is mighty smooth, with no major braking or acceleration events causing unwanted head bobs.

The Q8 has a combination of power and refinement that makes it easy to reach extralegal speeds. It handles corners better than an SUV without a Porsche badge has any right to. The only blemishes are a ride that's a bit on the choppy side (even in comfort mode), and a too-quiet exhaust.

Reviewers from topgear have found the following***:
The Q8 disguises its size brilliantly, and has a decent stretch of dynamic change from the seven different – selectable –modes. ‘Comfort’ really is leggier and softer, ‘Dynamic’ noticeably firmer and more responsive with a 40mm drop. There's also an off-road mode, which raises the suspension 50mm from the Comfort/Standard position in case you need to potter down atrack. The seats are excellent front and rear, there's acres of space in the back and a decent boot, ultimate volume slimmed slightly by the beetle back.
