The new Audi Q8 has been officially revealed and we can’t wait to meet the very latest Q model to join the Audi family. With its coupe-like styling, and all the versatility of an SUV, the new Q8 is the perfect family car for long journeys, offering style, comfort and the very latest in high-tech Audi technology. Slightly shorter than the current Q7, the Q8 still seats five passengers in comfort and provides a huge boot space of 605 litres.
Full quattro all-wheel drive combined with a six cylinder, 3.0 TDI mild hybrid system mean the Q8 is not just beautiful on the outside, but is beautiful to drive too, with maximum precision and assured handling for when the road gets tough. 286PS, a 0-62mph time of just 6.3 seconds and ground clearance of up to 254mm prove the Q8 is more than capable, wherever your road takes you.
The Q8 utilises mild hybrid technology in order to provide efficiency in every journey. A rechargeable battery stores electricity and allows the SUV to coast between speeds of 34 to 99mph with the engine off. The engine is then restarted quickly and efficiently when needed and recovers energy through deceleration. Start stop technology allows for further fuel savings.
Inside, two sleek touchscreens allow full control for the driver, without the need for buttons and dials. The top 10.1 inch display is used for the navigation and all infotainment functions, whilst a 8.6 inch screen sits below and controls heating and air conditioning as well as comfort functions. The navigation is further displayed in front of the driver on the beautiful Audi Virtual Cockpit, which arrives as standard with the new Q8. If you haven’t yet seen this feature, we recommend visiting your local Vindis Audi centre to take a look, because it’s a truly stunning addition to your Audi vehicle.
Available from launch, the S line specification arrives with a high specification, including navigation plus and HD matrix LED headlights with dynamic turn signals. Shortly after launch we will be seeing a high end Vorsprung edition which gains Valcona leather, 22 inch alloy wheels, full leather and dynamic all-wheel steering.
The new Audi Q8 will arrive in the UK this summer so make sure you get in touch with us to register your interest.
All vehicles that are sold by the Vindis Group are subject to an administrative / preparation fee of £90 inc VAT. For new vehicles this charge covers the cost of mechanically preparing the vehicle for delivery, the administration of new ownership documentation and final preparation for customer handover.
For used vehicles, this charge covers a full history and provenance check prior to being advertised for sale ensuring no financial risk or charge has been levied against the vehicle, that the vehicle has never been written off or stolen and final preparation for customer handover.
Vindis Group believe this level of preparation is crucial in ensuring we provide the highest level of customer satisfaction, for which the Vindis Group is renowned for.
For this reason, and in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, as of 6.00pm 23/03/2020 we made the decision to temporarily close all Vindis showrooms to members of the public. Whist we know this may cause some disappointment, our priority is to protect the well-being of our employees and customers in line with the latest Government guidance. For customers due to take delivery of your new vehicle we will be in contact and will aim to complete your transaction in a safe and compliant manner.
For those customers that are booked in for Aftersales care, all bookings other than those for Key Workers (as identified by the Government’s latest listings), urgent MOT’s and breakdowns are in the process of being cancelled; and each existing booking will have been confirmed with our team in advance of your visit to site. For other routine service and maintenance items, we will be in touch to re-arrange your booking for as soon as we re-open.
In order to facilitate the above, and in order to protect both you and our staff, our dealerships will be locked for the foreseeable future, and so upon arrival, please follow the instructions on the door in order to gain access. Additionally, it is vital that we ask that you do not attend any of our sites without having had a clear and specific communication that you qualify under one of the above guidelines, and we thank you in advance for complying with this difficult and possibly disruptive decision. Please also note that we have amended our service opening hours during this period to 08:30 – 17:30 Monday to Friday and closed during weekends.
Finally, although our showrooms are closed, should you wish to contact us we would be delighted to help you remotely in anyway possible; the best methods in which to contact us is either via email or through the live chat function found on our main Vindis Group website.
Please stay safe through this unprecedented period and we know that by working together, we will come through this stronger.
