The 2019 Audi Q8 recently debuted at the Audi Brand Summit in Shenzhen, China. The Q8 will serve as the flagship SUV for Audi, which delivered nearly two million vehicles worldwide last year.
Technology and Connectivity
The MMI operating system uses tactical and acoustic feedback, which is easy enough to get used to. Similar to a smartphone, the driver will hear and feel a distinctive “click” when a certain function is activated. The MMI system can be personalized.
Those who drive the Audi Q8 every day will appreciate wireless phone charging and a Bang & Olufsen stereo system.
Style and design
The 2019 Audi Q8 represents a new direction in terms of SUV design. The body design includes an octagonal grille, contoured air intakes and a sloping roofline.
The manufacturer promises enough space for cargo and passenger traffic, since the Q8 is wider and lower than the Q7.

All-wheel drive will form the basis of the new Audi Q8. With a mechanical center differential, the car operates with a power spread of 40:60. If necessary, a significant amount of power can be diverted to the axle with the most traction.
An adaptive damping suspension is standard, but air suspension is available with various driving modes.
Pricing and Availability
The 2019 Audi Q8 will be available in Europe later this year. So far, the manufacturer has not disclosed the official release date and prices for the new model.
