What You Will Like

The Audi Q7 blazed the way for the Audi Q8 to jump into the ring that is the luxury mid-size SUV segment. The Q8 changes the game as it stands however, with a 5-seater design rather than seven seats like its predecessor, this gives the Q8 adequate cargo capacity for a couple golf bags while providing a luxurious ride for a full boat of passengers. The Q8's Virtual Cockpit instrument cluster, its luxurious interior and superb drivetrain gives rivals like the BMW X6, Porsche Cayenne, Range Rover and Mercedes-Benz GLE real competition.

Based off Volkswagen's MLB Evo platform shared by the Audi Q7, Bentley Bentayga, Lamborghini Urus and Porsche Cayenne, the 2019 Audi Q8 debuts with its Ur-Quattro inspired exterior design powered by a Volkswagen Turbo Fuel Stratified Injection (TFSI) 3.0L engine and Quattro All-wheel drive system. Completing an already proven and impressive platform is the available fully-adjustable air ride suspension with all-wheel steering that brings the Q8 to new heights of versatility and comfort.

Loading Comparison...


The 2019 Q8 is Audi’s new flagship crossover SUV. It’s stylish, quick, graceful, and stuffed with technology, and it’s built for comfort and speed.

The Q8 seats five just fine, but four get the royal treatment. It’s related to the Audi Q7, and shares its 117.9-inch wheelbase. Since it omits the third row of seats, the Q8 is three inches shorter than the Q7.

The Q8 uses Audi’s proven and smooth turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 with its 8-speed automatic transmission and full-time all-wheel-drive system. A 48-volt mild-hybrid system cuts the engine at stoplights for better mileage—19 mpg combined, according to the EPA.

The Q8’s standard adaptive dampers give it a supremely comfortable ride; the available air suspension with rear-wheel steering delivers magnificent isolation.

Standard equipment includes automatic emergency braking that can prevent or mitigate forward crashes up to 52 mph. Optional safety equipment includes adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitors, and rear side airbags. Audi’s available driver-assistance feature can help pilot the car for long distances or in stop-and-go traffic for 60 seconds without driver input, but it’s not totally hands-free.


The Audi Q8 comes in Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige trims.

At $68,395, the Q8 Premium has leather seats, a 10.1-inch touchscreen for infotainment with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility,. an 8.6-inch touchscreen for climate and vehicle controls, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, Bluetooth and USB, panoramic sunroof, wood trim and 20-inch wheels.

For more than $72,000, the Premium Plus adds 21-inch wheels, premium audio, a surround-view camera system, four-zone climate control, and a driver assistance package.

The Prestige costs more than $77,000 and adds LED matrix headlights, a head-up display, leather dash, and cooled and massaged front seats.

Optional equipment includes Valcona leather, 22-inch wheels and red brake calipers. For the driver who wants assistance there is active lane control and traffic sign recognition. An adaptive air suspension is bundled with rear-wheel steering for $2,750. For $6,000 Audi fits the Q8 with brown leather, a silver headliner, and a gray leather dashboard.


The Q8 is sportier than the Q7, while its wide, strong face is more interesting than the three other Audi crossovers—the Q3, Q5 and Q7. The sideview reveals chunky sheetmetal, thick pillars, big wheel arches, and bulky rear doors.

The rear door cutouts spread to the wheel arches, where creases make the doors look smaller. Audi says the big doors mean smaller sills for easier entry and exit.


Every Q8 has acres of soft leather, piano black trim, and ambient LED lighting.

Like the Audi A6, A7, A8, and E-Tron, the new Q8 gets Audi’s latest driver info system using a 12.3-inch digital instrumentation screen, in addition to upper and lower touchscreens. The system has clear menus and is crisp and responsive. It uses satellite images for maps, curated lists for nearby restaurants from Yelp, has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and accepts voice commands for vehicle functions.

The standard heated leather seats are spacious and comfortable for long trips. Despite a low headliner to accommodate the standard panoramic sunroof, there’s enough headroom for very tall people—and that’s even with a high seating position that affords good forward vision. Thick rear pillars restrict rearward vision.

Despite being three inches shorter than the Audi Q7 (on the same wheelbase), the Q8 has two inches more rear legroom (more than 40 inches) as it’s not squeezed by a third row. The rear seat also slides forward four inches to make more room for cargo. The outboard seats are wide (wider than the Q7), while the center seat is best for a child or very slim person. Unlike Audi sedans, the floor is flat so the center passenger’s legroom isn’t compromised.

The cargo space is more than 30 cubic feet inside a big rear liftgate. That capacity doubles with the second row folded. With the optional air suspension, there’s a button inside the cargo space that lowers the car for easier loading.

Driving Impressions

As we said, the Q8 is built for comfort. It’s able to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 5.6 seconds, on the strength of its superb 3.0-liter turbocharged V-6 making 335 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. It’s mated exclusively to an 8-speed automatic transmission and rear-biased full-time all-wheel drive. The engine’s power comes on smoothly—triple-digit smoothly.

The Q8’s weight gives the steering a relaxed feel. The full-time all-wheel-drive system under normal driving sends 60 percent of the power to the rear wheels, but 80 percent is available if they need more. Despite its weight, the Q8 feels surefooted on loose surfaces.

The standard suspension with adaptive dampers has two modes, Comfort and Sport, but they should be named Comfort and More Comfort. It does an excellent job swallowing road imperfections.

The Q8 with the available air suspension is one of the most comfortable crossovers we’ve ever tested. The suspension comes with rear-wheel steering, which at slow speeds pivots the car for easier turning into parking spaces.


The Q8 looks great, and the drivetrain is flawless. It’s fast, smooth and grippy. With all the options, it gets quite expensive, but for those that can afford it, the 2019 Audi Q8 offers comfort on another level.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
