Meet The Audi Q8 Quattro

The Audi Q8 is essentially a sportier-looking and slightly more dynamic version of the Q7. The most notable difference between the SUV and coupé-inspired models is the gradient of the tailgate's slope.

The Q8 is 66 mm shorter and 35 mm lower than the Q7, but because it's 27 mm broader than its more traditionally-shaped sibling, it has a more imposing stance. 

The front of the Q8 with a long bonnet that caps a new interpretation of Audi’s single-frame grille, now with 8 sides instead of 6, as well as a re-worked headlamp design and gaping air intakes. The grille itself has a surround in either body colour, a curious dark matte grey, or glossy black.

The back is a riot of angular LED lighting elements, hollowed-out lenses carved with a whittling knife, and a mesmerising light show. In fact, the Q8’s lighting tricks perfectly explain the Q8’s appeal.

Powered by a 3.0-litre turbo petrol V6, sending 250 kW and 500 Nm into an 8-speed automatic gearbox.

Tech highlights include quattro all-wheel drive, Parking Aid Plus, Audi virtual cockpit Plus. Adaptive cruise control, Lane departure warning, Blindspot assist. A Head-up display with night vision camera, surround-view cameras\Keyless entry/startISOFIX child seat anchor points and a panoramic roof to bring some light into the cabin. The MMI infotainment system has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality, with MyAudi app connectivity.
