The Audi RS6 is the benchmark when it comes to practical performance, but it suffers from being an estate car in 2020. There’s nothing wrong with being an estate car these days, they're just not as popular as they once were.

These days, people prefer SUVs and – ever accommodating – Audi has gone ahead and released the Audi RS Q8 SUV.

It’s trendy enough to turn heads, practical enough to fit the whole family and the dog in and hits some eye-watering speeds.

In his video review, Rory takes a thorough look at life behind the wheel of the Audi RS Q8. Hit play to see if it justifies that price tag.
Audi RS Q8 at a glance
Audi RS Q8 price: from approx. £101,000 for the entry-level model. The top-spec Vorsprung edition starts from £117,000.

Audi RS Q8 engine: 4.0-litre V8 engine, that can get you 0-62 in 3.8 seconds officially, and 3.6 seconds if you’re Rory. The fuel economy is surprisingly decent for a car of this size, if you can avoid the temptation to hit that accelerator, that is.

Audi RS Q8 design: as a blend of SUV and coupe, it’s imposing yet understated. The RS Q8 has some seriously funky light animations, and 22-inch wheels as standard. There’re some premium touches like the soft-touch, frameless doors and the elegant sweep of the body.

Audi RS Q8 interior: working forwards; you get a 650-litre boot, spacious rear seats, plenty of storage space, decent materials and a sporty, comfortable (if not hugely practical) cabin. The controls are all via touchscreen, and the finish is glossy black – so you might want a micro-fibre cloth for those fingerprints.
