Serving Farmington Hills, MI

The Audi luxury SUV line is filled with beautiful, well-engineered models for you to consider, and our sales reps at Audi Farmington Hills are always happy to help our customers select the perfect model and trim level for their expectations and needs. If you are in the market for a larger SUV that is well-equipped with elite features, you may feel torn between the 2021 Audi Q7 and the Q8. The Q7 is a full-size luxury crossover, and it sits below the Q8 in the lineup. The Q8 is a more expensive model, and it is classified as a midsize SUV coupe. Notably, the Q8 is currently Audi’s flagship SUV. Are you eager to check out their other differences?


From a performance perspective, the 2021 Audi Q7 stands apart from the Q8 with its two engine options. These are a 248-horsepower, 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine, and a 335-horsepower, V6, 3.0-liter engine. The V6 engine is the only powertrain offered for the 2021 Q8 at all trim levels. Both models have a single option for the transmission and the drivetrain option. These are automatic eight-speed Tiptronic transmission with Quattro all-wheel drive.


Differences between the Q7 and the Q8 for the 2021 model year continue with their exterior style and features. These models have Audi’s large emblem and brand-specific, hexagonal grille, but the Q7’s façade has horizontal design elements subtly defined over the wheel fenders and across the hood. The Q8 has an extended profile with a coupe-style liftgate that angles dramatically to the rear bumper. The front end also has a more substantial angle. On the sides, the Q8 has robust definition through the side panels and over the wheel fenders.


All modern Audi models have an extensive selection of high-end features and high-tech equipment, so you can expect the Q7 and the Q8 to have some shared features. In the 2021 Audi Q7, you can find a hands-free tailgate release, a keyless starter, a virtual cockpit, side assist, a top-view camera, a Bang & Olufsen 3D sound system, a virtual 360-degree view with a top-view camera, paddle shifters, soft-close doors, and ambient lighting. The Q8 expands on this with a navigation system, a panoramic sunroof, front and rear parking sensors, a heads-up display, a four-zone auto climate management system, and a few other features.
