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.
