model highlights

The Q8 introduces a refreshing and civilized option in a segment full of a wide variety of options. With every trim level getting the same 3.0L TFSI VW powerplant producing 335 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque, standard rear-wheel bias all-wheel drive and a ZF 8-speed automatic transmission for lightning quick shifts, its no wonder the Q8 performs so well. All Q8s are also equipped with Audi's new 48-volt mild hybrid system, which permits extended stop-start functionality and extended engine-off coasting at highway speeds.

The Q8 is available in three trim levels -- Premium, Premium Plus and Prestige.

Standard features on Premium models include 20-inch wheels, dual 10.1-inch infotainment multimedia touch screen and an 8.6-inch touch screen for climate control and data input, MMI Navigation plus with touch response and virtual cockpit, a panoramic moonroof, a parking system with rearview camera, leather-appointed seats and Fine Ash wood inlays.

An optional Convenience Package adds an Audi phone box with wireless charging and antenna booster, Audi side assist with rear cross-traffic assist and vehicle exit warning. Also included are heated and power folding auto-dimming wing mirrors that even include memory settings.

Stepping into the Premium Plus includes the Convenience Package, adds 21-inch 5-spoke W-design wheels, a 3D Bang & Olufsen surround sound system, 4-zone climate control and a Top view camera system with virtual 360 surround view.

The fully-loaded Prestige adds a heads-up display, a leather dashboard with contrast stitching, Alu touch-sensitive buttons as well as sophisticated LED headlights that can shape headlight patterns to adapt to road obstacles and oncoming traffic.

Optional packages like the Luxury Package will set you back $5950 dollars but include an Alcantara headliner, dual pane glass, individual contour seats with ventilation and massage and the extended Valcona leather package that includes wrapped center console and armrests.

The Q8 features a full roster of advanced safety and driver assist features, including forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind-spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, traffic-sign recognition and adaptive cruise control.

model news

Based off Volkswagen's MLB Evo platform shared by the Audi Q7, Bentley Bentayga, Lamborghini Urus and Porsche Cayenne, the 2019 Audi Q8 debuts with its Ur-Quattro inspired exterior design powered by a Volkswagen Turbo Fuel Stratified Injection (TFSI) 3.0L engine and Quattro All-wheel drive system. Completing an already proven and impressive platform is the available fully-adjustable air ride suspension with all-wheel steering that brings the Q8 to new heights of versatility and comfort.

value writeup

The Audi Q7 blazed the way for the Audi Q8 to jump into the ring that is the luxury mid-size SUV segment. The Q8 changes the game as it stands however, with a 5-seater design rather than seven seats like its predecessor, this gives the Q8 adequate cargo capacity for a couple golf bags while providing a luxurious ride for a full boat of passengers. The Q8's Virtual Cockpit instrument cluster, its luxurious interior and superb drivetrain gives rivals like the BMW X6, Porsche Cayenne, Range Rover and Mercedes-Benz GLE real competition.
