Discover The All-New 2019 Audi Q8
With its always commanding presence, turn heads driving the all-new 2019 Audi Q8 from Velocity Honolulu. From its off-road quattro ® DNA to its sleek and roomy interior, this surprisingly comfortable ride dominates the road and is made for adventure. Onlookers will stare at the aggressive Singleframe ® front grille and signature LED accents that give the Q8’s sporty design an appearance that is unmistakably Audi.
But the Q8 is more than just a pretty face. The impressive Q8 offers available safety features and endless technology that makes this SUV a heavy-hitter in driving experience.
Performance and Handling
When your aluminum-intensive structure and suspension system is compared to the Bentley Bentayga, the Lamborghini Urus and the Porsche Cayenne, you can rest assure this high-end performer governs in a higher class. Equipped with a 3.0-liter TFSI® V6 with a twin-scroll turbocharger mated to an eight-speed tiptronic® transmission, this dynamic pairing offers 335 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. It ramps up at a 0-60 mph time of 5.6 seconds, proving buying an SUV doesn’t mean sacrificing performance.
Quattro® all-wheel drive puts the power to the road, and active torque distribution creates a handling experience you’d expect from a sports car. Power can be allocated to the wheel with the most traction, and individual wheel braking further enhances how well the Q8 handles on tight roads. Audi Drive Select allows the driver to adjust the suspension damping to different types of driving so that the Q8 is always glued to the road.
To get even more out of the new Q8, the Adaptive Chassis package adds adaptive air suspension, which allows ride height and stiffness to be adjusted through Audi Drive Select. Two additional drive modes—all road and lift/off-road—are also added with the package, as is all-wheel steering. The dexterity of the Q8 is impeccable with options for even more customization.
A revolution in interior design, the next generation dashboard makes its appearance in the 2019 Audi Q8. Offering tons of tech that checks every box, the MMI touch response® is offered on a 10.1-inch display, which controls all infotainment and navigation features that this SUV is equipped with. With an Audi connect subscription, information like parking and weather are only a touch away. In addition, rather than conventional buttons, there’s also a smaller 8.6- inch display for climate control and other comforts. This second display gives the interior of the Q8 a refined look.
Audi’s virtual cockpit is a 12.3-inch display screen that offers a high-resolution view of Audi Connect®, which features connected navigation and 3D city models. Displaying everything from audio to phone information, the Audi virtual cockpit instrument panel gives drivers a constant companion throughout the journey.
Other connectivity options, like the Audi phone box (which charges cell phones and amplifies their signals) and standard Audi smartphone interface, are available for Apple CarPlay™ and Google™ Android Auto™ so that you can use your phone without compromising safety.
The Q3 features a wealth of features that offer advanced safety and driver assist protection. Smarter than your average SUV, the Q8 has up to 24 sensors, depending on selected options, that read the surrounding area, so that it applies its driver assistance systems in the most informed way possible to help mitigate accidents and other unwanted road hazards.
Optional features, like Adaptive Cruise Assist, forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, top-view camera with virtual 360-degree surround view, intersection assist, turn assist, traffic sign recognition, Audi side assist, Audi pre-sense rear, vehicle exit warning and rear cross-traffic assist, all make the Audi Q8 a vigilant second pair of eyes on the road.
