Q8 vs X6: Deluxe Interior Features

With luxury vehicles, you can always expect high-class cabins. The 2019 Q8 and X6 impress on this front. Both come dressed to the nines with leather upholstery. Nappa leather is available in both, giving you a soft-touch feel that retains the look of the natural hide. The Q8 offers premium Valcona leather, too.

There's spacious seating for five people in both vehicles-and even the backseats are adult friendly. With 35.6 inches of rear legroom in the BMW X6, you'll have ample space to stretch your legs. For the tallest of passengers, the Audi Q8 is even roomier. Try 40.2 inches of rear legroom on for size!

Need a more temperate drive? Quad-zone automatic climate control is available in both SUVs for a more customizable level of comfort.

A Performance that Truly Elevates

The Audi Q8 and BMW X6 serve up thrilling performance on a silver platter. The BMW runs standardly on a turbocharged 6-cylinder engine with 302 horsepower on tap. That's enough to boost you from 0 to 60 MPH in 6 seconds flat.

However, the Audi SUV packs an even greater punch. Under the hood, you'll find a V6 engine with up to 335 horsepower on tap. With energy like that, you can make the jump from 0 to 60 MPH even quicker-do it in just 5.6 seconds!

In the Audi Q5, you'll have the benefit of standard quattro® all-wheel drive (AWD). Get the traction you need when those winter storms cover the roads in snow. The BMW X6 offers available AWD but only as an upgrade from standard rear-wheel drive (RWD).

SUV Capabilities: Towing & Hauling

Want to make your SUV a reliable weekend warrior? The 2019 Q8 and X6 sport some impressive towing abilities to make every adventure easier. The BMW can tow up to 6,000 pounds when properly equipped, which is ideal for small fishing boats or some jet skis.

The Audi blows that total out of the water, however, with a max towing capacity of 7,700 pounds. Even larger items like water ski boats and lightweight camper trailers won't be a problem!

You'll have a bit more cargo space in the Audi SUV, too. You can easily store luggage for your next family trip behind the rear seats with 30.5 cubic feet of space. The BMW is still roomy, but it offers just 26.6 cubic feet in the same configuration.

Audi Q8 vs BMW X6: The Final Showdown

There's no doubt about it: The 2019 Audi Q8 and BMW X6 are top-tier luxury SUVs. Now that you've had a chance to compare the two, which seems like a better fit for you? With two such similar vehicles, it may be a difficult choice for Burlington, Essex Junction, and South Burlington drivers to answer.

However, if you want a spacious cabin and those extra capabilities, including standard all-wheel drive, the all-new Audi Q8 stands out for the right reasons. Think it might be the right choice for you? Schedule your test drive at our Audi dealership and decide for yourself!
