If you are in the market for a luxury SUV to drive around Danbury in, look no further than the 2021 Audi Q8. This vehicle has the power, space, and modern technology features to make it stand out against its competition.

Engine Performance

You want to make sure that you are getting an SUV with plenty of power to get you through your daily life all around Southern Putnam County.

  • The 2021 Audi Q8 gets its power from a 3.0L V6 engine that puts out 335 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. The engine gets combined with an eight-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive is standard on all the models for optimum driving on any surface. The Audi Q8 makes towing your boat to Cross River in Katonah easier with the ability to tow up to 7,700 pounds.
  • While both the 2021 Audi Q8 and the 2021 BMW X6 have a 3.0L V6 engine with 335 horsepower, the Audi Q8 has more torque. The Audi Q8 can tow 500 pounds more than the BMW X6 can tow.
  • The Audi Q8 bests the 2021 Acura MDX with its horsepower and torque. The Acura MDX gets its power from a 3.5L V6 engine that puts out 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque.
  • The 2021 Volvo XC90 has three engine options, including two gas-powered ones and a hybrid option. But while it has more engine options than the Audi Q8's one, the Audi Q8's engine is more potent than the two gas-powered engines on the Volvo XC90.
  • While the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLE has five available engine options to the Audi Q8's one engine option, the Audi Q8 has more power than the standard engine on the Mercedes-Benz GLE. The base engine on the Mercedes-Benz GLE puts out 255 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. All-wheel drive is available on the Mercedes-Benz GLE but standard on the Audi Q8.

Interior Space and Design

SUVs are well-known for having plenty of passenger and cargo space. You want to make sure you have the space you will need as well as the comfort features that will enhance every drive.

  • The Audi Q8 has plenty of space for you and your passengers to have enough space to stretch out on trips outs around North Westchester County. It also has the room to pack all the cargo you will need to move around New Milford. There is 30.5 cubic feet of cargo space in the SUV with all the seats in place. Seating dimensions in the Audi Q8 include:

    • 41.6 inches of legroom in the front
    • 37.1 inches of headroom in the front
    • 59.5 inches of shoulder room in the front
    • 40.2 inches of legroom in the second row
    • 38.1 inches of head room in the second row
    • 58.5 inches of shoulder room in the second row
  • The BMW X6 has less cargo space than the Audi Q8 at 27.4 cubic feet. The BMW X6 only has 35.7 inches of legroom, 37.5 inches of headroom, and 57.7 inches of shoulder room in the rear seats.
  • The Acura MDX also has half the cargo space than the Audi Q8 at 15 cubic feet of cargo space. The Acura MDX has less legroom in the front seat for you to stretch out in traffic around Bedford at 41.4 inches.
  • Like on the Acura MDX, the Volvo XC90 has faux leather on the base trim, unlike the genuine leather on the Audi Q8. The Audi Q8 also has standard heated front seats on the base trim, but you can only get heated front seats on all-wheel-drive on the Volvo XC90.
  • The Mercedes-Benz GLE has simulated leather seats while the Audi Q8 has genuine leather seats on its base trim level, bringing more comfort to you and your passengers.

Modern Technology Features

No drive around Ridgefield is complete without a little entertainment. These entertainment features also allow for more convenience while driving.

  • The Audi Q8 features two touchscreen infotainment displays and Audi's Virtual Cockpit, which is a digital gauge cluster. The displays have Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities. The wireless charging pad and cellphone signal booster allow you to stay connected with your friends and family back in Carmel.
  • The BMW X6 only has one touchscreen display and does not have a cellphone signal booster.
  • The Acura MDX touchscreen is smaller than the Audi Q8 at 7 inches. While this midsized SUV has USB ports to keep your phone charged, you will have to deal with wires, unlike with the wireless charging pad on the Audi Q8.
  • The Volvo XC90 has a 10-speaker audio system to enjoy your music. However, this is smaller than the Audi Q8's 17-speaker audio system.
  • While the Mercedes-Benz GLE has a touchscreen that is just as large as the Audi Q8, the Mercedes-Benz GLE does not have the head-up display that the Audi Q8 has. This feature casts the information to the bottom left-hand corner on the windshield.
