To reliably start during all conditions and help handle large electrical loads, the Range Rover has a standard 1600-amp battery. The Q8’s 380-amp battery isn’t as powerful.

The battery on the Range Rover is in the trunk, which protects it from hot underhood temperatures that can degrade battery life. By keeping the Range Rover’s battery 20 to 30 degrees cooler, its life is increased by years. The Q8’s battery is in the hot engine compartment.

The Range Rover offers an optional full size spare tire so a flat doesn’t interrupt your trip. A full size spare isn’t available on the Q8, it requires you to depend on a temporary spare, which limits mileage and speed before replacement.

The Range Rover V8 has active sway bars, which help keep it flat and controlled during cornering, but disconnect at lower speeds to smooth the ride and offer greater off-road suspension articulation. This helps keep the tires glued to the road on-road and off. The Q8 doesn’t offer an active sway bar system.

The front and rear suspension of the Range Rover 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 Range Rover has a standard automatic front and rear load leveling suspension to keep ride height level with a heavy load or when towing. The Range Rover’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 Range Rover’s drift compensation steering can automatically compensate for road conditions which would cause the vehicle to drift from side to side, helping the driver to keep the vehicle straight more easily. The Q8 doesn’t offer drift compensation steering.

For better maneuverability, the Range Rover’s turning circle is 3 feet tighter than the Q8’s (40.5 feet vs. 43.5 feet). The Range Rover LWB’s turning circle is .6 feet tighter than the Q8’s (42.9 feet vs. 43.5 feet).

For greater off-road capability the Range Rover has a 5.8 inches greater minimum ground clearance than the Q8 (11.6 vs. 5.8 inches), allowing the Range Rover to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged.

The front grille of the Range Rover Diesel 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.

The Range Rover has a much larger cargo volume with its rear seat up than the Q8 with its rear seat up (31.8 vs. 30.5 cubic feet). The Range Rover has a much larger cargo volume with its rear seat folded than the Q8 with its rear seat folded (68.6 vs. 60.7 cubic feet).

The Range Rover SVAutobiography’s optional sliding cargo floor makes loading and unloading cargo easier and safer. The Q8 doesn’t offer a sliding load floor.

The Range Rover’s cargo area is larger than the Q8’s in almost every dimension:

To improve rear visibility by keeping the rear window clear, the Range Rover has a standard rear speed-sensitive intermittent wiper with a full on position. The rear wiper standard on the Q8 only has an intermittent setting, so in a hard rain visibility isn’t as good.

Optional air-conditioned front and rear seats keep the Range Rover’s passengers comfortable and take the sting out of hot leather in summer. The Q8 doesn’t offer air-conditioned seats in the rear.

The Range Rover offers an optional 115-volt a/c outlet on the center console, allowing you to recharge a laptop or run small household appliances without special adapters that can break or get misplaced. The Q8 doesn’t offer a house-current electrical outlet.

The Range Rover’s optional 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.
