The New Audi Q8.
Now at centres!
A new face for the Q family: the exterior design
The Audi Q8 further brings to life the progressive design language that Audi first brought onto the road with the new A8. Strong contours and athletically tight surfaces convey a feeling of power, sophistication and the dynamics of the permanent all-wheel drive.
Compact proportions, paired with a low roof and a flat window form the rear end. A narrow, black high-gloss element with an integrated light strip extends between the rear lights. This light feature accentuates the width of the Q8. It creates a striking light signature day or night, channeling its roots in the original quattro. The distinctive rear diffuser is finished with four vertical fins and an integrated tailpipe trim on each side.
Digital character: lighting technology and design
The Q8 headlights include the benefits of HD matrix LED headlights fitted as standard, not only featuring the dynamic turn signal front and rear, but also an impressive light show during locking and unlocking. Future integration with the myAudi app allows the Q8 to activate various lighting functions all from a smartphone, to experience outside the vehicle - a unique feature for the Q8 in the competitive field.
Each headlight unit consists of 24 individual LEDs and, from afar, the two-part lights appear flat, with only the top section visible. They integrate the daytime running light and the low beam, among other functions. The high beam is positioned underneath, darkened and offset to the back.
On-and off-road: quattro drive and air suspension
Audi is quattro and quattro is Audi – this of course applies in particular to the Q8, our range topping SUV.The purely mechanical centre differential transfers the forces to the front axle and rear axle at a ratio of 40:60 as standard.
The suspension makes a crucial contribution to the precise handling. The five-link front and rear suspensions are made largely of aluminium, delivering a precise and accurate drive.
Simplicity is the new premium: the interior design
The upper MMI touch response display is the central element of the interior of the Audi Q8. With its black-panel look, it almost dissolves into a large, black surface when switched off. Simple, easy-to-understand symbols stand for the digital precision and for the high level of integration of the architecture and operation – simplicity replaces complexity.
