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.

SQ8 Vorsprung comes with pretty much everything, so you'll want for nothing. This includes active anti-roll bars, a 360-degree parking camera, a sport differential, a 17-speaker/ 730-watt Bang & Olufsen premium stereo, power-closing doors, keyless entry, a panoramic sunroof, a heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, a head-up display, electric rear sun blinds, an Alcantara roof lining, extended leather trim, massaging and ventilated front seats, an electrically adjustable steering column, blind-spot monitoring and adaptive cruise control.

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.
