Among car aficionados, the term “grocery getter” is less than complimentary, most often used to describe a boxy minivan. Audi followed a different path, resulting in the Audi SQ8, a luxurious yet much more powerful version of their Q8. To allow full use of the 4-liter, twin-turbo 500-hp V8, a track-ready suspension keeps the SQ8 firmly planted at all times. Delicate passengers might suggest the ride is a bit stiff, but the driver will be too busy grinning to notice. Fans of Audi’s A7 mini-limo will feel right at home in the SQ8’s cabin featuring generous use of leather; South Floridians will especially appreciate the cooled seats. Vehicle information is monitored via the Virtual Cockpit display while passengers control entertainment options afforded by the stacked monitors controlling the navigation system and vehicle climate, while CarPlay turns the SQ8 into an iPad on wheels. The SQ8 will have you fighting over who gets to go for groceries; AudiUSA.com.
