Audi interiors are arguably the best in the business and the Q8 is exactly as you'd expect from the firm's flagship SUV. You won't find a cheap-looking finish anywhere, while the two central touchscreens give the Q8 a modern look, leaving few buttons for the essentials like starting the engine and turning the lights on.

Said touchscreens are easy to use and quick to respond, with the lower screen allowing you to control things like the air conditioning and allowing you to create shortcuts to features you use regularly (your favourite radio station, for example). The upper touchscreen, meanwhile, provides access to the audio system and displays the navigation.

The Q8 uses Audi's Virtual Cockpit in place of conventional dials. This is intuitive to use, allowing you to choose what you wish to prioritise during driving - be it driving information such as your current speed, or navigation info or even what's playing on the infotainment. It might sound needlessly complex, but it's actually very simple and a useful system to have.

One surprising feature of the Q8 is the amount of space on offer. Yes, the boot is marginally smaller than the Q7, and there are only five seats. But it'll suit most needs.

Sitting in the rear doesn't feel like the compromise you might expect. In fact, it almost feels like the Q8 is the ultimate car to be chauffeur driven in, such is the comfort and space on offer in the back. The rakish roofline doesn't impede space like it does in rivals, and large windows make it feel airy and pleasant.
