Audi has made some achievements with their new release, the RS Q8. The 2020 Audi RS Q8 will be the strong challenger in the SUV market. The design and especially, the performance are very satisfying.
Speaking about performance, this car even sets a better result than its competitor, Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S, at Nurburgring testing track for a lap time. With all kinds of this achievement, it is not surprising if you are also interested in this car. And, the first question that every car enthusiast asks in this condition is always about Audi RS Q8 price.
2020 Audi RS Q8 Actual Price
The initial price for this new car is $113,000*(Price MSRP). This price includes the destination charge, as well as other optional features that you also can get from this car. Compared to the previous SQ8 series, it is indeed $24,000 more expensive. However, it is reasonable; because this new car has better specifications which make it become one of the best choices in the SUV category.
The main reason why the price is more expensive than other cars in a similar category is mainly because of the new improvement that Audi did in this car. One of the biggest changes is the new V8 engine in RS Q8. This engine is also the reason why this car successfully set the record in the Nurburgring testing track and beat its competitor record. So, we can expect a good performance from this car with this kind of price.
The Specifications and Performance
Speaking about performance, as we mentioned before, the V8 engine is the main character here. This new engine has successfully produced 592 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque. With this kind of output, the new 2020 Audi RS Q8 can run from 0-62 mph in just 3.8 seconds. Moreover, the top speed this SUV can reach in a good condition is 189 mph.
So, by looking at the engine part, we can see that this is not an ordinary SUV. Compared to other SUVs, which mostly focus on handling and power, this one has speed as its weapon. It is not wrong if we call the new RS Q8 as one of the fastest SUVs in its class.
However, the speed and acceleration don’t come only from its new V8 4.0 liter engine. The AWD system is also the other reason why you can reach that acceleration and speed level. In its driving system, you can find the RS-Mode button you can use to change between two driving modes, RS1 and RS2.
The button is located on the steering wheel, so you can easily reach and press it. By using these two configurations, you can adjust how this car will run, allowing you to get the maximum performance from its engine.

The specs are not the only thing that Audi tries to sell in this car. It seems that this car manufacturer also gives the interior and all the features in it, a great boost. And, if we have to describe how the interior looks and feels like in one word, it is futuristic.
The most noticeable change is how Audi removes most of the button type controller. Most of the control panel inside is using a touchscreen panel. You can see it clearly in the driver area. You can find a virtual cockpit here. Everything is work by slide or touch the panel screen. Furthermore, it also displays detailed information about your car, from g-forces to lap times.
The controller for other features, such as the climate system, AC, and others, is also improved by using touchscreen design. The design of the menu is also intuitive, which gives you a very comfortable experience using this new system.
On the other hand, the comfort level in the interior is also quite satisfying. Audi uses the Nappa leather and Alcantara trim for this car, similar to the other RS models. They even add ambient lighting to create a nice atmosphere inside.
The New 2020 Audi RS Q8 is indeed a great car. The specification, design, and interior are all considered to be at the top level in its class. More importantly, the price is quite reasonable, as we will get quite sophisticated and comfortable features from this car
