The front and rear suspension of the I-Pace uses air springs for a smoother, controlled ride than the Q8, which uses coil springs. Air springs maintain proper ride height and ride more smoothly.

The I-Pace has a standard automatic front and rear load leveling suspension to keep ride height level with a heavy load or when towing. The I-Pace’s height leveling suspension allows the driver to raise ride height for better off-road clearance and then lower it again for easier entering and exiting and better on-road handling. The Q8 doesn’t offer a load leveling suspension.

The I-Pace HSE handles at .93 G’s, while the Q8 Prestige pulls only .83 G’s of cornering force in a Motor Trend skidpad test.

The I-Pace HSE executes Motor Trend’s “Figure Eight” maneuver 2.1 seconds quicker than the Q8 Prestige (24.8 seconds @ .77 average G’s vs. 26.9 seconds @ .69 average G’s).

For better maneuverability, the I-Pace’s turning circle is 4.2 feet tighter than the Q8’s (39.3 feet vs. 43.5 feet).

For greater off-road capability the I-Pace has a 2 inches greater minimum ground clearance than the Q8 (7.8 vs. 5.8 inches), allowing the I-Pace to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged.

The Jaguar I-Pace may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs about 50 to 200 pounds less than the Audi Q8.

The I-Pace is 1 foot shorter than the Q8, making the I-Pace easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

The design of the Jaguar I-Pace amounts to more than styling. The I-Pace has an aerodynamic coefficient of drag of .29 Cd. That is significantly lower than the Q8 (.35) and many sports cars. A more efficient exterior helps keep the interior quieter and helps the I-Pace get better fuel mileage.

The front grille of the I-Pace uses electronically controlled shutters to close off airflow and reduce drag when less engine cooling is needed. This helps improve highway fuel economy. The Q8 doesn’t offer active grille shutters.

Heated windshield washer nozzles are optional on the I-Pace to prevent washer fluid and nozzles from freezing and help continue to keep the windshield clear in sub-freezing temperatures. The Q8 doesn’t offer heated windshield washer nozzles.

The I-Pace’s Park Assist can parallel park or back into a parking spot by itself, with the driver only controlling speed with the brake pedal. The Q8 doesn’t offer an automated parking system.
