Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Audi Q8 4x4?

The Mercedes GLE Coupé may be the best in terms of boot space, but it's based on the old GLE, which in turn was a facelifted M-Class. This means it doesn’t benefit from all the latest technology that allows the Q8 to handle so well.

The BMW X6, on the other hand, handles incredibly well and offers some stonking diesel engines. Its interior isn't as accommodating, but it does feature BMW's iDrive infotainment system, which is one of the best in the industry. 

Overview

Fine handling and a classy interior make the Audi Q8 a fine premium SUV-coupé choice, but just be aware that the excellent Q7 is more practical and a lot cheaper

  • Spacious interior
  • Fantastic build quality
  • Very quiet
  • Limited engine choice
  • Expensive road tax
  • Fiddly infotainment system
