When we`ve heard that Audi is planning to release new Q8 we must say that we weren`t surprised because they are just following some other companies, such as BWM and Mercedes. This new 2018 Audi Q8 is greatest combination between coupe and SUV you could find on the market and we are even happier because he`s going to be released exactly from Audi`s factory because they`ve seen the mistakes others have made so they`ve surely made it better. Let`s see.
2018 Audi Q8 Redesign
It is obvious that overall look of this new Audi Q8 won’t be totally new and it is great that Audi already want to make him recognizable. New Q8 will look almost the same as Q7 just sportier version of him. Biggest difference that these two amazing models have are: larger grille on Q8, thinner and longer headlights and bigger air vents as well. Since this new Q8 will be made with larger air vents under the headlights, we can assume that he’s going to arrive stronger than before. Great thing about new 2018 Audi Q8 is that he’s going to be placed on new generation of Volkswagen’s MLB platform which will make him available to use more lightweight materials than before which means that his overall body weight can be dropped.
Because we already know that overall exterior design of this new 2018 Audi Q8 and last Q7 generation will be quite the same we can say that we expect the same Q7 influence inside this car as well. We are sure that new Q8 will feature some new things to make him a bit different but also, we can say that he’s going to be better equipped when it comes to the hi-tech functions. Entertainment functions inside new 2018 Audi Q8 will be raised to the highest level and the passengers on the second row of seats will enjoy it the most because they’re going to have two separated touchscreens jammed on the back of the seats from 1st row. Alcantara leather seats will be something you’ll enjoy when it comes to the driving inside new Q8 and great thing about him is that he’s going to be more than spacious and cozy.
