Self Study Program 990793 – The 2019 Audi Q8 Introduction

VAG SSP 990793. The Audi Q8 combines the best of two worlds – the refined elegance of a four-door luxury coupe and the practical versatility of a large SUV. The new top-of-the-line model of the Q family demonstrates luxury-class prestige in every detail. Its generously sized interior with variable luggage compartment, cutting-edge operating and running gear technology and its intelligent driver assist systems make the Audi Q8 an assured companion for business and leisure.

A powerful yet efficient 3.0l V6 TFSI engine with mild hybrid technology provides the dynamic characteristics promised by the muscular design. With quattro permanent four-wheel drive and ground clearance of almost 10 inches (254 mm), the SUV coupe is equally at home away from paved roads.

The coupe-like roof line gives it a significantly flatter look than its sister model the 2017 Q7. The Q8 is 2.6 inches (66 mm) shorter but approximately 1.1 inches (27 mm) wider. Strong contours and taut, athletic surfaces convey power, high quality and the special dynamics of the permanent four-wheel drive system. The Q8 offers its very own interpretation of the progressive design language which was introduced with the Audi A8, fusing the attributes of an elegant four-door luxury coupe with those of a handsome SUV, and including echoes of an Audi icon: the original quattro. With the striking single-frame grill in octagonal design, the Audi Q8 presents the new face of the Q family.

Like the Audi Q7, the Audi Q8 is built at the Bratislava factory.

As Audi’s SUV crossover model, the Audi Q8 features expressive design with a new octagonal single-frame grill and characteristics reminiscent of the original Audi quattro.

Like the 2019 Audi A8, , the Audi Q8 is based on Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) technology. Below is a summary of the key features of the new Audi Q8.
