The 2022 Q8 is a midsize two-row SUV that sits near the top of Audi's lineup alongside the three-row Q7. The Q8 was just introduced a few years ago as a more stylish and sporty version of the Q7. Like all other Audis, the Q8 is loaded with tech and has a premium feel that's difficult to replicate. Combine that with sharp handling and a comfortable ride, and you get a well-rounded SUV that sacrifices some of the Q7's utility for a sportier look and feel. The Q8 was just introduced a few years back, so we don't expect any significant changes for 2022.
The Q8 competes against a handful of so-called SUV coupes including the BMW X6, Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe and Porsche Cayenne Coupe. While we slightly prefer the GLE over the Q8, the Audi manages to eclipse most other luxury SUVs in its class. If you're itching for performance in a practical package, the V8-powered SQ8 and RS Q8 are hugely entertaining and fare well against performance SUVs from Mercedes-AMG and BMW's M performance division.
