New for 2019

The Audi Q8 is all-new for 2019. An available Year One package includes 22-inch aluminum wheels finished in anthracite; black optic exterior trim; unique bumpers, fender badges, and door sills; and red brake calipers.

Trim Levels (Interior and Exterior Options)

Shorter and lower than the Q7 it's based on, the Q8 is designed to do battle with the BMW X6 and Mercedes GLE Coupe.

2019 Q8 Premium: The base trim of the Q8 features 20-inch aluminum wheels, a 12.3-inch Virtual Cockpit fully digital instrument cluster, a dual-screen touch-response infotainment system with a 10.1-inch upper and 8.6-inch lower screen with satellite navigation, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto connectivity, a 10-speaker audio system with SiriusXM and HD radio, three-zone automatic climate control, heated eight-way power front seats, and a panoramic sunroof.

2019 Q8 Premium Plus: The midline trim level adds 21-inch aluminum wheels, a 17-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system, heated power-folding auto-dimming mirrors with memory, ventilated front seats, a wireless charging pad, four-zone automatic climate control, and a top-view camera system with virtual surround view.

2019 Q8 Prestige: The highest trim level offers LED headlights and taillights, a head-up display, a leather dashboard with contrast stitching, and adaptive cruise control.

Performance and Fuel Economy

Every 2019 Q8 is powered by a 3.0-liter turbocharged V-6 making 335 hp and 369 lb-ft connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission driving all four wheels. Fuel economy is rated at 17/22 mpg city/highway. A 48-volt mild hybrid system can recoup up to 12 kW of energy during braking.

Safety

The 2019 Audi Q8 was rated a Top Safety Pick by the IIHS, scoring Good across all categories except for headlights, which were rated Acceptable. The IIHS also gave the Q8 a front crash prevention designation of Superior, thanks to its ability to fully avoid collisions both in the 12-mph and 25-mph autobrake tests. The 2019 Audi Q8 received a five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA (out of a possible five stars).

Standard active safety features on the Q8 include front and rear parking assist, rain-sensing wipers and headlights, and Pre-sense Basic, which tightens the seat belts and closes the window and sunroof when an accident is imminent. Premium Plus models add Pre-sense Rear, which adds rear collision detection to the system, top- and corner-view cameras, side assist, rear cross-traffic assist, and automatic high-beams. Prestige trims add adaptive cruise control, active lane assist, and traffic sign recognition, and it's available with a night-vision assist featuring pedestrian detection.

Utility (Cargo Space and Interior Room)

The 2019 Q8 has room for up to five passengers and features 30.5 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats, which increases to 60.7 cubic feet with the rear seats folded. Front-seat passenger have up to 41.6 inches of legroom, while rear-seat passengers will find 40.2 inches.

Technology

The 2019 Audi Q8 communicates with the driver through several large screens in its cockpit. Audi's Virtual Cockpit comes standard and features a 12.3-inch display in the instrument cluster. Drivers can select between analog-style gauges or an infotainment setup that prominently features navigation across the expanse. Audi's MMI system comprises wo screens in the console, with a 10.1-inch upper display for infotainment and navigation, an 8.6-inch lower display for climate control, and a touchpad featuring full-word handwriting recognition. Prestige models add one more "screen" in the form of a full-color head-up display.

In terms of audio, Q8 Premium models come standard with a 10-speaker audio system with HD and SiriusXM Radio. Premium Plus and Prestige models feature a 730-watt, 17-speaker Bang and Olufsen audio system.

What We Think

In our First Drive of the 2019 Audi Q8, we found it to be more than just a truncated Q7. "Plenty of headroom and legroom," along with a "sleek interior" and "simple, elegant lines" revealed a stylish, tech-forward cabin with plenty of room for four. Add a fifth passenger, however, and they would have to straddle a "notable drivetrain hump." And although the majority of Q8 owners are unlikely to go off-road, it's more than up to the task. An available air suspension offers up to 10 inches of ground clearance, and "the Q8 displays the inclination and roll angles on the infotainment screen." Amid all the tech, a minor quibble lay with device charging. "One thing we hope to see in the future are more USB ports," we lamented.
