Audi Q8 in Poole Dorset
The Audi Q8 is Audi’s halo SUV. It offers luxury by the tonne, with powerful, imposing proportions and a sporty silhouette. It’s stunning on the outside and on the inside, with Audi’s Virtual Cockpit Plus, twin touchscreens, heated front and rear Valcona leather seats and exclusive interior inlays like polished oak. Think it’s all the car you need? Wait until you drive it. Your suspicions will be confirmed.
Driving the Q8 is a pleasure. It rides splendidly thanks to its air suspension and there’s quattro all-wheel drive for assured traction. The Audi Q8 now offers plug-in hybrid efficiency. Available in 50 TDI (286PS) or 55 TFSI (340PS) versions and with quattro all-wheel drive standard on both, Audi’s most progressive SUV coupé to date can now be driven purely with fuel, or battery, or an intelligent combination of both.
The Q8 is stacked. Its muscular body and powerful proportions dwarf most other SUVs. S line models sit on 21” alloys while Edition 1 and Vorsprung models sit on 22” alloys. Luxury is baked in with massaging front seats on Vorsprung models.
Powered by a 3.0 55 TFSI engine with 340PS or 3.0 50 TDI engine with 286PS, the Q8 gets a move on. For longer drives, a clever hybrid management system uses navigation data to predict when to switch between electric and combustion power – spreading the battery’s charge over the entire journey and charging it as you drive.
Powered by a 3.0-litre 55 TFSI petrol engine with 340PS or 3.0-litre 50 TDI diesel engine with 286PS, the Q8 gets a move on. All models have quattro all-wheel drive, a tiptronic transmission and adaptive air suspension for a smooth ride and sharp handling.
Living with it
Thanks to its high ride height, the Q8 is easy to drive and it comes with a reversing camera and sensors to help you manoeuvre safely. Heated seats, cruise control, lane assist, Keyless Go and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard features.
