Audi is inarguably among the most recognized vehicles of the 21st century, especially as far as reliability is concerned.

Apart from their unique appeal, luxurious comfort, tech integration, and eye-striking appeal, Audi’s renowned for offering impeccable performance on the road that most other vehicle brands would only dream of.

Plus, their safety ratings are superior, and their fleet includes many different vehicle styles, from sedans to convertibles, coupes, all-road wagons, and SUVs. And for anyone approaching the automotive market for a sleek and dependable SUV, Audi SQ8’s features might be compelling enough to make you choose it.

The Audi SQ8 

Launched in June 2019, and an improved version of the Q8, the SQ8 is a coupe-style SUV that combines superb performance on the road with a super-attractive appeal.

Boasting to provide most if not all the benefits of owning an SUV, the SQ8 is said to give the likes of the X6 BMW and Porsche Cayenne a run for their money.

It is currently available in four generations: 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022; with a 2023 model very much on its way.

The lavish model is equipped with multiple impressive features, which perhaps explains why the German automotive brand’s beast has a price tag some thousands of bucks higher than the average SUV price in places like the US.

Awesome Features of Audi SQ8

1. Outstanding Horsepower and Torque: 

Equipped with a V8 turbocharged petrol engine, perhaps the most striking features of the SQ8 are its solid power and great performance on the road.

Its 500 horsepower, 568 pound-per-feet of torque, and the sweet rumbling noise of the engine once you strike the ignition button is something many drivers find thrilling enough to brag about.

2. Superior Comfort and Luxurious Interior: 

Besides the immense power, the SQ8 is designed to offer superior comfort, you can drive through rough roads and bumps at speed without worrying about unending aches after your commute.

Together with the well-padded leather upholstered seats, the adaptive air suspension feature is expertly designed to ensure just this.

From the 2021 model and above, this spacious beast also boasts features like heated and ventilated (front and rear) seats, a heated steering wheel, and a premium stereo to keep your commute comfortable and enjoyable. The interior is simply elegant.

3. Robust Tech Integration: 

In addition to its 360-degree camera system, Audi’s SQ8 comes with a ton load of other tech-advanced features, most of them located in the vehicle’s cabin.

Some of these include a voice control system, smartphone-compatible infotainment system, and the adaptive cruise control feature that lets you better control braking and acceleration.

4. How the SQ8 Differs from the SQ7 

The Audi SQ8’s design draws inspiration from its earlier predecessor, the SQ7. The two SUVs share many similarities, including fuel capacity, engine type, fuel economy, and drivetrain type.

But as anyone would expect, there are a few striking differences between the two models. For instance, while its SQ7 sibling boasts more seating capacity (7-seater: 3 rows), the 2022 Audi SQ8 is a 5-seater SUV with only two rows.

Some of its cargo space is compromised by a sloping roofline that gives it a sportier look compared to the SQ7.

The total length and width vary slightly between the two, with the SQ8 being slightly smaller in both dimensions. Audi’s SQ8 also has slightly larger wheels, a bigger steering turning diameter, and a compact spare tire. Finally, SQ8 is a bit pricier than most if not all of its predecessors.

As much as the automotive industry is gradually taking a shift towards electric and hybrid electric vehicles, one thing remains true. It will take a considerable number of years (or decades) before the entire world goes purely electric.

Before then, a powerful, classy, and sporty combustion engine SUV can make your life easier, more convenient, and much better. The above are just some of the many reasons you may want to get the Audi SQ8 if you’re in the market for a new (or used) SUV.
