Safety

The Q8’s pre-crash front seatbelts will tighten automatically in the event the vehicle detects an impending crash, improving protection against injury significantly. The Urus doesn’t offer pre-crash pretensioners.

The Q8 has a standard Secondary Collision Brake Assist, which automatically applies the brakes in the event of a crash to help prevent secondary collisions and prevent further injuries. The Urus doesn’t offer a post collision braking system: in the event of a collision that triggers the airbags, more collisions are possible without the protection of airbags that may have already deployed.

To help make backing safer, the Q8’s optional cross-path warning system uses wide-angle radar in the rear bumper to alert the driver to vehicles approaching from the side, helping the driver avoid collisions. The Urus doesn’t offer a cross-path warning system.

The Q8 has a standard Audi Connect CARE, which uses a global positioning satellite (GPS) receiver and a cellular system to remotely unlock your doors if you lock your keys in, help track down your vehicle if it’s stolen or send emergency personnel to the scene if any airbags deploy. The Urus doesn’t offer a GPS response system, only a navigation computer with no live response for emergencies, so if you’re involved in an accident and you’re incapacitated help may not come as quickly.

Both the Q8 and the Urus have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, height adjustable front shoulder belts, four-wheel antilock brakes, all wheel drive, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, crash mitigating brakes, rearview cameras, available night vision systems, lane departure warning systems, blind spot warning systems and around view monitors.

Warranty

There are over 9 times as many Audi dealers as there are Lamborghini dealers, which makes it much easier should you ever need service under the Q8’s warranty.

Fuel Economy and Range

On the EPA test cycle the Q8 gets better fuel mileage than the Urus (17 city/22 hwy vs. 12 city/17 hwy).

Regenerative brakes improve the Q8’s fuel efficiency by converting inertia back into energy instead of wasting it. The Urus doesn’t offer a regenerative braking system.

In heavy traffic or at stoplights the Q8’s engine automatically turns off when the vehicle is stopped, saving fuel and reducing pollution. The engine is automatically restarted when the driver gets ready to move again. (Start/Stop isn’t accounted in present EPA fuel mileage tests.) The Urus doesn’t offer an automatic engine start/stop system.

To lower fuel costs and make buying fuel easier, the Audi Q8 uses regular unleaded gasoline (premium recommended for maximum performance). The Urus requires premium, which can cost 20 to 55 cents more per gallon.

The Q8 has 2.7 gallons more fuel capacity than the Urus’ standard fuel tank (22.5 vs. 19.8 gallons), for longer range between fill-ups.

Chassis

The Q8 is 5 inches shorter than the Urus, making the Q8 easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

Cargo Capacity

The Q8 has a much larger cargo area with its rear seat up than the Urus with its rear seat up (28.6 vs. 21.8 cubic feet). The Q8 has a much larger cargo area with its rear seat folded than the Urus with its rear seat folded (67.5 vs. 56.4 cubic feet).

Ergonomics

The Q8 has a standard remote vehicle starting system, so the vehicle can be started from inside the driver's house. This allows the driver to comfortably warm up the engine before going out to the vehicle. The climate system will also automatically heat or cool the interior. The Urus doesn’t offer a remote starting system.

The Q8’s rain-sensitive wipers adjust their speed and turn on and off automatically based on the amount of rainfall on the windshield. This allows the driver to concentrate on driving without constantly adjusting the wipers. The Urus’

To improve rear visibility by keeping the rear window clear, the Q8 has a standard rear wiper. The Urus doesn’t offer a rear wiper.
