Expressive design, pioneering technology and luxuriously appointed – the all-new Audi Q8 combines everything the brand stands for. Strong contours and athletically tight surfaces convey a feeling of power, sophistication and the dynamics of the quattro all-wheel drive. Inside, the styling is elegant and clean, finished with the highest quality materials. Intelligent operating systems and high-tech infotainment lead into the digital age, from MMI touch response to voice control with natural speech recognition.
With the four rings. 4.99 meters (16.4 ft) long, 2.00 meters (6.6 ft) wide and 1.71 meters (5.6 ft) tall, the SUV coupe is wider, shorter and lower than its Q7 sister model.

A new design era
With the imposing Singleframe in octagonal design, the Audi Q8 is the new face of the Q family. The brawny radiator grille stands upright and, together with the spoiler that has been drawn toward the front and the large, highly contoured air inlets, emphasizes the self-confident look. The elegant roofline slopes gently into the D-pillars and rests against the quattro blisters above the wheel arches, which house up to 22-inch wheels. A light strip connects the units at the rear.
Two high-resolution 10.1- and 8.6-inch HD touchscreens are integrated into the centre console seamlessly with an impressive level of detail to make every journey comfortable. The upper display provides access to the infotainment systems and the lower display provides access to air conditioning, comfort functions and text input. The haptic and acoustic feedback gives this state-of-the-art technology a very ‘real’ feel, while reducing the number of buttons and controls required in the cabin.
The optional HD Matrix LED headlights provide more precise, higher-resolution illumination of the road ahead without blinding other road users. Instantaneous and seamless, the systems can detect an on-coming vehicle and the intelligent system masks the appropriate light-emitting diodes in the other vehicle’s field – while still lighting the area around them.
quattro all-wheel drive
Audi is a pioneer in all-wheel drive technology, creating the revolutionary quattro all-wheel drive – a system that delivers superb handling and traction, while giving extra security and stability on wet or low friction surfaces. The purely mechanical centre differential transfers the forces to the front axle and rear axle at a ratio of 40:60 as standard. When required, it transfers the majority to the axle with the better traction.
