World premiere Audi Q8
Parkplatz-Esser Deluxe: With the Q8, Audi now has its own X6
World premiere: Audi Q8
Site author Stefan Grundhoff
You know that? The Audi Q8 offers no surprise – it is based almost one to one on the concept study. While electric drives are outsourced on Audis e-tron, the Q8 becomes a classic steam hammer SUV with strong engines.
Little surprise in the Audi Q8: The appearance with the mighty grille grille grille is particularly fat, massive and impressive, while the fitting light strap is more reserved during the rear. The wheel arches are discreetly worked out and the rear door is almost as lavishly dimensioned as the front. The Q8 presents itself more sporty, optically more dynamic than you know from the past models and, above all, not as a boring as the Audi Q5 that resembles its predecessor like a twin. Audi has already sent an almost identical series car to a much -noticed study: When the Audi TT in 1998 came on the market, the differences to the TT sports car study shown in 1995 were marginal.
Audi now has its X6
Maybe a good omen for the Q8 that it also needs. Because while BMW, especially in its second generation, attracts many financially strong customers with the X6, who are simply too ordinary, Audi has painfully overslept the trend towards SUV coupes. In the meantime, competitors Mercedes with the GLE Coupe also offers a beefy X6 imitation and in the class below, BMW X4 and Mercedes GLC Coupe also sell splendidly, where Audi also only offers a model gap.
Find out how much your used car is worth: Audi has used a top model in the SUV league, especially with a view to the profitable markets in Asia and the USA. Here the Q7 is often a seven -seat family crossover; And then it becomes difficult for the splendid motorized Audi S Q7 with its 435 hp V8 diesel to lure real sports car fans. The 4.98-meter-long Audi Q8 is much easier.

Designer Marc Lichten and his team went a different way than BMW or Mercedes and did not drop the roof line towards the rear; Therefore, the Q8 is less a coupe than an independent body variant that differs significantly from the Audi Q7. Platform and technology are largely identical to the well-known Audi Q7, but especially in the interior, the newcomer can score a lot, because while the seven-seater is still traveling with the old brand cockpit, the Q8 already shines with the new dashboard, with which A6, A7 and A8 are traveling. The Q7 only gets this with the model maintenance.
Sixted design and new branded cockpit
Precisely because the Audi Q8 does not use the third row of seats, the space available in the interior is lavish, not least thanks to the three -meter -long wheelbase. The cockpit works by the digital instrument cluster and the two touch displays for navigation and climate work with 10.1 or. 8.6 inch screen diagonal in the center console emphasizes modern. In front there are four different seats up to sports chairs or comfort armchairs with ventilation. At the back, at least two people can find their place for longer trips very comfortably. The cargo space behind the mandatory electrical tailgate is between 605 and 1755 liters.
The engine power is transmitted via a mechanical middle difference in a ratio of 40:60 on both axes. If one or more wheels losing liability, the power distribution is adjusted accordingly. At the market launch, the Audi Q8 can be obtained as 50 TDI with a 210 kW / 286 hp three-liter commonrail diesel, which thanks to 600 Nm maximum torque speed 100 in 6.3 seconds and a top speed of 232 km / h. At the beginning of 2019, a smaller V6 diesel with 170 kW / 241 hp and a three-liter V6 petrol engine with 250 kW / 340 hp will follow.

Eight -cylinder with 435 hp
However, it shouldn’t stay that. The 435 hp eight-cylinder diesel in the Audi S Q8 is likely to be as set as a 600 hp RS petrol variant with a charged V8 engine that competes against BMW X6 M and Mercedes AMG GLE 63. The 448 hp hybrid motorization of the Audi Q8 Concept, which also easily modifies a motor variant of the Q7, is likely. However, the normal engines have a belt starter and a 48-volt section network with lithium-ion battery. Between 55 and 160 km/h the crossover can sail with a deactivated engine and the start-stop area begins at 22 km/h. In real operation, fuel consumption should reduce up to 0.7 liters per 100 kilometers.
