If you want that coupé–SUV look and are shopping with a hefty budget, then the classy, spacious and refined Audi Q8 will certainly not disappoint.

This is all you really need. It has 22in alloy wheels, air suspension, rear-wheel steering, a limited-slip differential, Matrix LED headlights, privacy glass, a powered tailgate, power-folding door mirrors, leather trim, electrically operated and heated front seats, two-zone climate control, ambient interior lighting, front and rear parking sensors, a rear-view camera, cruise control, a 10-speaker stereo with 180 watts, a 12.3in digital instrument screen, a 10.1in infotainment screen, sat-nav and Apple CarPlay/ Android Auto.

This wonderfully smooth and sonorous 500bhp 4.0-litre V8 petrol engine is capable of thrusting the near-two-and-half-tonne SQ8 from 0-62mph in just 4.1 seconds. It also has a number of efficiency-boosting features up its sleeve, such as the ‘cylinder on demand' system that can shut down half of the engine’s cylinders when possible to reduce fuel consumption. You're still unlikely to see much more than 20mpg, though.
