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.

Third on the Velar tree (or 33rd through to 40th if you count the engines and R-Dynamic combos) is the SE. The D180 starts at $87,873, with prices stretching through to the P380 R-Dynamic's $114,702.
The SE arrives with 20-inch alloys, a 17-speaker stereo, side parking sensors, digital dash, self parking, ambient interior lighting, electric front seats, sat nav, auto high beam, LED headlights with signature DRLS, puddle lamps, Wi-Fi hotspot with on-board SIM card slot, powered and heated folding mirrors, leather interior, dual-zone climate control, cruise control, reversing camera, keyless entry and start, front and rear parking sensors, remote app, auto LED headlights, auto wipers, leather and suede trim, power tailgate and a space-saver spare.
The R-Dynamic package, which is a part styling part, technology pack for inside and out, adds different wheels, upgrades to seat leather, aluminium trim pieces and, on some models, an upgrade to the sound system. It also adds air suspension and bigger front brakes, depending on the engine spec. 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.
