Nice vehicle, interior is better than before, new exterior is nice, but the seats are much too firm.
Front Seats Ranked 2019 Audi Q8 3.0t quattro Prestige AWD better.
"Comfy with just the right support, seats in Porsche were WAY too firm for drives of any length."
Would Buy Ranked 2019 Audi Q8 3.0t quattro Prestige AWD better.
"New styling inside and out, more comfortable, more room, and superior interior. Overall a much better value, it would have cost $20,000 more to get the same equipment in the Porsche, I did the math!"
