Q8 vs X6: Engine Specifications

2019 Audi Q8

Powering the 2019 Q8 and X6 forward are some exceptional engines under the hood. Both crossovers run standardly on turbocharged 3.0L 6-cylinder engines. From the Audi SUV, you get 335 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. The BMW SUV falls a bit short, with 302 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque available.

Due to its incredible power output, the Q8 achieves a slightly faster acceleration time. It can race from 0 to 60 MPH in a mere 5.6 seconds, while the X6 clocks in a bit slower at 6.0 seconds. Both SUVs make merging and passing a breeze on the highways. 

Looking for intelligent traction on the road? The Audi Q8 offers standard quattro®all-wheel drive (AWD) for a more gripping experience. While the BMW X6 offers its own AWD system, xDrive, you'll need to upgrade from standard rear-wheel drive (RWD) to experience it. 

Advanced Technology Features 

The Audi Q8 and BMW X6 include highly responsive and user-friendly infotainment systems. When you use the Audi MMI®system or the BMW iDrive system, you can stay connected to the road, your contacts, and your music like never before.

The iDrive multimedia system comes standard with a 10.2-inch touchscreen and a touchpad controller. Apple CarPlay™ comes standard as well, so you can pair your iPhone with the touchscreen and use all your favorite apps on the road. 

As nice as that system is, the new MMI® system gives the Audi an advantage here. Its system includes not one but two touchscreens (10.1 and 8.6 inches, respectively), so you can see navigation and audio info at the same time. This system includes both Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, so Android users won't be left out of the loop. 

The Cabin: A Versatile Interior 

2019 Audi Q8 Interior

The practicality of an SUV stems from having a flexible interior. The 2019 Q8 and X6 offer spacious cargo areas. Fold the rear seats, and you'll reveal roughly 60 cubic feet in both vehicles. However, with the rear seats in use, the Audi SUV has a bit more room.

With 30.5 cubic feet available, it can fit plenty of vacation luggage for a family of five. The BMW SUV has just 26.6 cubic feet in the same configuration, giving you less space to work with.

In both vehicles, the backseats are suitable for adults. However, you'll find significantly more legroom in the Audi crossover. It offers 40.2 inches of rear legroom, compared to just 35.6 inches in the backseat of the BMW.
