The Audi Q8 combines the spaciousness and ergonomics typical of an SUV with the elegant body line of a four-door coupé. Richly equipped, comprehensively connected and tough enough for off-road duty, it is a composed companion for business and leisure.
With the imposing Singleframe in octagonal design, the Audi Q8 is the new face of the Q family. The elegantly sloping roofline terminates in gently inclined D-pillars and rests against the quattro blisters above the wheel arches, which house up to 22-inch wheel.
Numerous details echo the design of the Ur-quattro. Strong contours and athletically tight surfaces convey a feeling of power, sophistication and the special dynamics of permanent all-wheel drive. The spoiler, wheel arch trims, door trim strips and diffuser are in a contrasting color, to further emphasize the off-road look.
The purely mechanical center differential transfers the forces to the front axle and rear axle at a ratio of 40:60 as standard. Besides the standard progressive steering, Audi also offers the option of all-wheel steering. It can turn the rear wheels as much as 5 degrees to increase agility for better stability. All drive systems are particularly efficient thanks to the new mild hybrid technology (MHEV).
Clarity is the new premium: the interior Easy-to-understand symbols stand for the digital precision from Audi and for the high level of integration of architecture and operation. The central element is the top MMI touch response display. With its black-panel look, it almost dissolves into a large, black surface when switched off.
All elements refer logically to one another, from the flat air vent strip to the wide console on the center tunnel bearing the tiptronic selector lever. In the dark, the contour light traces the distinctive design lines of the interior and provides backlight for the three-dimensionally lasered quattro badge above the glove compartment – an example for the love of detail at Audi. Options including customized contour seats with massage function and ventilation, four-zone automatic air conditioning and the air quality package with fragrancing and ionizer further enhance the elegant ambiance.
