Should I buy a pre-owned Audi Q7 or Q8?

First off, in order to understand the differences between these two high-end Audi SUVs, we must learn about what makes them similar. That size difference helps to offset a key structural difference between the two: the Audi Q8 features a sloping, coupe-like roof. That’s also the reason the larger SUV only features seating for five, very ample and spacious seating, mind you, versus the third-row seating available in the somewhat smaller Audi Q7.


Powertrain options are a key difference. Both SUVs share the same eight-speed Tiptronic engine and standard quattro AWD, but things diverge from there. The Audi Q7 features a choice of engines, one a 2.0 litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine that’s good for 252 horsepower, and the other a 333 horsepower turbocharged 3.0 litre six-cylinder engine. The latter engine makes a repeat appearance in the Audi Q8 but in a higher state of tune (335 horsepower and 369 lb-ft. of torque).

The 2019 Audi Q8 offers drivers a unique performance that blends sport, utility, and comfort into one dynamic design. This SUV is also equipped with quattro® all-wheel drive, allowing drivers to hit the ground running. The 2019 Audi Q8 provides drivers with seating for up to five passengers compared to the Q7’s eight. If you’re a family of four or are planning on cruising around town with a few friends, the 2019 Audi Q8 is perfect for your everyday drive.

Final thoughts…

The bottom line? If you can take the small hit in cargo volume and seating space, the Audi Q8 offers a level of indulgent luxury we think you’ll love. If, on the other hand, you really need the seating or a slight bump in cargo space with the third-row seats down, the Audi Q7 wins by a nose. You really can’t go wrong either way.
