The Audi Q8 is a big luxury SUV that is aimed at people who just don’t need a seven-seater, and are more focused on style than outright practicality.

It’s essentially a competitor to the likes of the BMW X6 and Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe, though the design of the Q8 isn’t as exaggeratedly swoopy as those two. In fact, you might prefer to consider how it lines up against a Range Rover Sport.
