Padtoets: 2019 Audi Q8 55 TFSi

Audi se nuwe groot baas?

Sedert 2006 het Audi die tree geneem na die SUV mark met hul Q7 model. Met die groei van die mark na kleiner en meer stedelike-vriendelike SUV’s het die Duitse vervaardiger die Q5 en Q3 bekend gestel. Aanvraag het gegroei en Audi het dus in 2017 die kleinste Q uitgebring, naamlik die Q2. Met bykans 14 jaar se ervaring (meer sodra Volkswagen se produksie van die Touareg ingebring word) het Audi besluit om nog die grootste Q-voertuig tot op hede uit te bring.

Tested: Audi Q5 TFSI Quattro Tiptronic

I’m not a huge fan of oversized, pricey SUVs. I find them a bit pointless really. And initially, I wasn’t particularly taken with the Audi Q5 either. My first impressions were very negative, I disliked its bulbous bonnet, I felt too far removed from the whole driving experience with its clever driver assist technology and I really couldn’t see the point of its existence – halfway between a Q3 (which is quite big enough for the school run in my opinion) and a Q7 (which is somehow just magnificent).
