Luxury SUV coupés have become popular choices, as the success of models such as the BMW X6, Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupé and Range Rover Velar attests. Their popularity stems from the fact that they combine rakish, coupé-like looks with the class and most of the practicality of a conventional luxury SUV. However, Audi has never had a car to compete in this segment – until now.

The Q8 is Audi’s new flagship SUV, sitting above the Q7 – our 2018 Luxury SUV of the Year – in the firm’s line-up. It’s Audi’s most imposing SUV yet, with a sloping roofline, an aggressive new front end, larger-than-usual wheels and even hints of the influential Quattro sports coupé of 1980 in its styling – notably the bulging wheel arches. But what else do you need to know?
