Audi Q8 review – a master of comfort and refinement - MPG and running costs
Audi’s first coupe SUV isn’t the last word in driving thrills, but it serves up an easy to live with and satisfying package
MPG and running costs
The official MPG figures for the Q8 suggest that over 40mpg will be achievable on a combined run. With a careful right foot that may well be possible, but we only managed low-30s during our drive. That said, even our economy results are impressive for an SUV that weighs more than 2000kg.
The Q8’s huge wheels may not have a detrimental effect on the car’s comfort levels, but it does on the cost of tyres. The 285/45 R21 Hankooks that are standard on the S-line are over £200, while tyres that size from other brands are at least twice as much. The 285/40 R22 Continental Sport Contact 6 tyres on the Vorsprung are over £300 each.
