2020 Audi Q8 Overview

The 2020 Audi Q8 is a luxury midsize SUV that seats up to 5 people with plenty of space!

It also has a new octagonal grille, which is as aggressive as it is iconic. This design is a cue for the rest of the Audi SUV model line.

For those of you who like all-wheel drive, then you're in for a treat! This comes standard with this SUV and is called the Quattro system  unmatched by other brands.

The Audi Q8 is indeed an SUV, but it accelerates quickly. This vehicle goes from 0 to 60 MPH in under 6 seconds!

Interior Space

The 2020 Audi Q8 is very spacious on the inside. Passengers will feel comfortable no matter where they sit in the car.

This vehicle is built with a small incline, which combines both sportiness and utility. This design works well, as there's still plenty of space and visibility for rear passengers.

In the back, there are 40/20/40 split-folding seatbacks, as well as rear climate control to keep all passengers comfortable!

Also, you'll get 30.5 cubic feet of cargo space. If you fold down the rear seats, you'll get up to 60.7 cubic feet of space! When compared to other luxury midsize SUVs, this room in the back is boast-worthy.

Handling

When you're driving, the Audi Q8 is extremely responsive making twists and turns a breeze.

The 2020 Audi Q8 also comes with adaptive shock absorbers, which provide for an extremely smooth ride. You can also opt for adaptive air suspension, which will make you feel like you're driving on clouds.

This SUV also has large brakes, which ensures that you can stop on a dime, should you wish to do so.

Safety

One of the most important things you need to know when purchasing a car is how safe it is on the road. For the 2020 Audi Q8, it received a 5 out of 5 from the NHTSA. It was also named a 2020 IIHS Top Safety Pick!

For both the frontal and side crash ratings, this SUV got 5 out of 5 and a rollover rating of 4 out of 5, ensuring you're safe with every drive.
