Should I Buy the 2021 Audi Q8?
Even though the Q8 puts style ahead of functionality with its sleek looks, it still has a large backseat. Interior quality is impressive, and so is the Q8’s ride quality and outward visibility. Acceleration lag, however, is a problem, and the drivetrain’s stop-start system isn’t great. The SUV also gets expensive in upper trim levels.
