The standard Q8 comes with three rows of seats, allowing you to accommodate up to seven passengers. The LX offers three-row seating, but you will need to pay more for a higher trim level to take advantage of it.

Each also offers color multi-information displays, although the Audi Q8 is the only one to boast a 12.3-inch screen. A Wi-Fi hotspot is also standard to the Audi Q8, but not with the Lexus LX. However, the Audi Q8 delivers a similarly-equipped experience as the Lexus LX without costing nearly as much.

When it comes to getting there on time, both the Q8 and LX SUVs offer performance that won't back down. The Audi Q8 comes standard with a 3.0-liter six-cylinder twin-turbocharged engine that delivers 335 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque, while the Lexus LX equips a 5.7-liter V8 with 383 horsepower and 403 pound-feet of torque. With large SUVs, you might not expect to get excellent fuel economy, but the Audi Q8 makes it a priority. It offers impressive efficiency, with 18/23 mpg city/highway - the Lexus LX can't quite match these numbers, with 12/16 mpg city/highway. You will find that you need to stop to pump gas more often in the Lexus SUV.

Both models come equipped with all-wheel drive, but the Audi Q8 equips the legendary quattro® all-wheel drive, which provides superior traction and control when taking corners. The Lexus LX offers full-time four-wheel drive, but it won't offer the same capability as the Q8's drivetrain.

Both earned top marks from the NHTSA for performance in crash scenarios, but the Audi Q8 does it with a more affordable price tag.

From standard quattro® all-wheel drive to a variety of standard features and amenities, the Audi Q8 knocks it out of the park.
