Not much has improved within considering that the auto was new final calendar year, besides “base” models get a lot more of the typical good stuff. (Foundation, by the way, in a crossover that starts at virtually $70,000 is totally relative.)
We give the Q8 details earlier mentioned ordinary for good typical tools and a good infotainment method. Other people in the course pile significant the options checklist with shell out-up extras, although Audi’s baked in most of the well-liked characteristics in as typical tools. It’s a seven right here.
Like final calendar year, the Q8 is readily available in Premium, Premium Plus, and Status trim ranges. The base 2020 Q8 Premium expenses $sixty nine,195, which include obligatory spot prices. Entirely loaded, a major-conclusion Q8 Status can operate up to virtually $eighty,000—the forthcoming SQ8 and RS Q8 may well very easily crest 6 figures when those rates are introduced.
Each and every Q8 gets heated front seats, 20-inch wheels, a 12.three-inch digital instrument cluster, ten.1-inch touchscreen for infotainment with smartphone-compatibility program, Bluetooth connectivity, panoramic sunroof, lively security characteristics (that we include earlier mentioned), leather upholstery, wooden trim within, navigation, a panoramic sunroof, and an eight.6-inch touchscreen for automobile capabilities and weather controls.

We’d hit the goldilocks spot in the middle at the Premium Plus trim degree that expenses $5,five hundred considerably less than the major-greenback product and only skips the head-up exhibit, leather dashboard, and matrix headlights. All 3 trim ranges are luxury-grade crossovers, but the revenue saved on the major-greenback version is better expended on an air suspension which is optional on Premium Plus and Status trim ranges and expenses $2,750. We’d also include Audi’s lively driving assistants for $1,750 that can assistance maintain the Q8 centered in its lane, cease and go in major targeted traffic, and involves a stoplight timer compatible in some towns that will exhibit how long the auto will sit in an intersection. It’s significantly useful for occupied moms and dads or multi-tasking motorists to know how long they can anticipate keeping stationary although achieving for objects in other seats.
