Audi Q8 2019 review
The Audi Q8 isn't cut from the same swoopy cloth as its direct rivals - the BMW X6 and Mercedes GLE Coupe - but that's a good thing. Because on first impressions, it's better than both of those cars.

Range Rover's Velar plugs the gap we didn't know needed plugging between the Evoque and the Range Rover Sport. Weaved into the price list is the R-Dynamic specification.
Off the bat, every Velar features all-wheel drive, an eight-speed automatic and five seats. When you're choosing your Velar, you start with the engine and trim level combination and you can then add R-Dynamic.
The R-Dynamic package is all about styling - a lot like M Sport or S-Line - inside and out adds different wheels, upgrades to seat leather, aluminium trim pieces and on some models an upgrade to the sound system. R-Dynamic adds around $6000 to the price of each trim/engine level.
Each Velar comes with JLR's new stacked touchscreen technology, Touch Pro Duo. With two big touchscreens, one high in the dash as before and one where the dash meets the console, it allows you to spread the different functions across the two screens. Annoyingly, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are a $520 privilege for the pair.
The Velar ships with six airbags, ABS, stability and traction controls, tyre pressure monitoring, reversing camera, lane-keep assist, forward AEB with pedestrian avoidance, and lane-departure warning.
