Highlights from the Audi Q8 Launch

Published:Thursday | January 17, 2019 | 8:25 AM
The Q8 features a low roofline, strongly contoured quattro blisters over the wheel arches and large wheels up to 22 inches. In keeping with Audi’s mandate of Vorsprung Durch Technik, the Audi Space Frame is in multi-material construction: the doors, front fenders, rear hatch and many other parts are made of aluminium while ultra-high-strength components of hot-shaped steel form the backbone of the occupant cell for high rigidity.

The interior of the Audi Q8 features a fully digitised interior with two large touchscreens with diagonals of 8.6” and 10.1”, Audi virtual cockpit auto-dimming interior rear-view mirror (frameless), Bang & Olufsen Premium Sound System and natural language voice control, accentuated by the glass panoramic sunroof, all features which come standard.

The Audi Q8 brings together the best of both worlds - the elegance of a four-door luxury coupe and the practical talents of a large SUV. The vehicle is designed to compete with the BMW X6 and Mercedes-Benz GLE coupe, which means it's both luxurious and spacious. The generously dimensioned interior with variable luggage compartment, state-of-the-art operating and suspension technologies, as well as intelligent assistance systems make the Audi Q8 a companion for business and leisure.
