Learn more about the 2020 Audi Q8
The 2020 Audi Q8 has one less row of seats and a lot more style than the three-row Q7 SUV that it is based on. With a coupe-like profile and bolder bodywork, the two-row Q8 kicks off the company’s line of ultimate crossovers, which also includes the separately reviewed SQ8 and RS Q8. The Q8 also provides a carlike driving experience that is both athletic and refined. Its cabin is beautifully appointed and solidly put together in typical Audi fashion. While it holds fewer people and has less cargo space than its three-row sibling, the 2020 Q8 is best suited for those who prioritize sportiness, luxuriousness, and style. If this is something that you are interested in, then our Pfaff Audi dealership in Vaughan, ON, is the place where you need to be.

What is new for the 2020 model year?
For 2020, Audi gave the Q8 newly standard features and revised option packages. All models now have blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. The Convenience package on the higher trim level adds a heated steering wheel and a top-view camera. A heated steering wheel is standard on the mid-level trim as well, and its optional Executive package now has even more content. This includes adaptive cruise control, heated rear seats, lane-keeping assist, Matrix-design headlights, and armrests covered in leather.
Engine and performance
Audi provides every Q8 with a turbocharged 3.0-litre V-6 that makes 335 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. It pairs with an eight-speed automatic transmission and Quattro all-wheel drive. A 48-volt hybrid-assist system aids stop-start operation, which was smooth and quiet. The Q8 can also tow up to 7700 pounds when properly equipped. Following the guidelines established by other crossover “coupes,” the Q8 provides high-riding capability with sporty driving responses. While it swiftly changes directions and obediently hustles around corners, the driver can reminisce about how relatable it is to other Audi sedans, like the high-end A7.
Interior and comfort
In typical fashion, Audi has crafted a sophisticated and sturdy environment inside the Q8. The materials are premium, and the panels are expertly aligned. While the base model doesn’t have some of the upscale features such as four-zone climate control and a leather dashboard with contrast stitching, it does have standard heated front seats and a panoramic sunroof. Only the top-of-the-line model offers massaging front seats, upgraded leather surfaces, and quieter dual-pane glass. The driving position remains sporty despite its elevated height, and two adults can leisurely stretch out in the back.
Infotainment and connectivity
With a pair of vivid touchscreens integrated into the dashboard and center console, every Q8 boasts a cutting-edge infotainment system. Instead of the intuitive rotary controller found on other Audi models, the displays respond to touch inputs with haptic feedback. Thankfully, receptive voice commands and handy steering-wheel controls provide alternate operations. Standard features include a Wi-Fi hotspot and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Wireless charging and two different Bang & Olufsen audio systems are optional. You should be particularly fond of the standard digital gauge cluster (called Virtual Cockpit), with its configurable settings and superb navigation.
