Audi Q8 vs Range Rover Velar: Power Capabilities

Did you know one of the many benefits to driving a luxury sedan is a powerful engine? The Audi Q8 and the Range Rover Velar are two examples of this. Of course, while both SUVs offer engines that are like rogue beasts, not all engines are comparable.

When looking for more power, the Q8 is the engine that provides the extra power you'll need up front. While the Range Rover Velar offers an optional 3.0L engine that pumps out 335 horsepower, why upgrade when you can get the same power standard from the Q8?

Audi Q8 vs Range Rover Velar: Premium Style

When driving a luxury SUV, you expect your vehicle to be full of premium features sure to make heads turn. From the dazzling LED headlights found on both the Q8 and the Velar to the interior cabin lighting that will help set the mood for your commute, both luxury SUVs provide premium style.

Where the 2021 Audi Q8 takes the lead is with the optional Luxury package. This package includes features like 18-way power adjust heated and ventilated seats, massage capabilities, and Valcona Leather upholstery.

Audi Q8 vs Range Rover Velar: Advanced Technology

You'll always have access to the latest digital attributes thanks to the features found inside your luxury SUV. Still, with the ever-changing digital world, one multimedia touchscreen is no longer enough.

Thankfully, both the Q8 and the Velar come with two touchscreens-an upper touchscreen for infotainment, like music and navigation, and a lower touchscreen for climate control and other comfort features.

Additionally, both SUVs come standard with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™  that make selecting the digital features you want to listen to while traveling the town a breeze.
