Audi Q8

INTRODUCTION

One of the most awaited Audi’s variants is all set to be released in the Indian market. This time the four-wheeler is comparatively smaller and looks athletic. Audi Q8 is now the flagship SUV from the German manufacturer. The Audi Q7 is longer and taller than the new SUV, but the width of the Q8 is more than the Q7, which increases the aggressive stance of the SUV. The boot space of the Coupe SUV is 605 Litres. There is no doubt that the Q8 is one of the best looking coupe SUVs in the market. Audi Q8 will come as a CBU or Completely Build Units in India. Audi Q8 is available only in one petrol variant that is 55TFSI Quattro. Audi Q8 is priced at Rs. 1.33 Crores (ex-showroom)

 

 

EXTERIOR

EXTERIOR

Audi Q8 exteriors look nothing like any other SUV in the market due to its aggressive and striking styling. It features an exclusive design in the entire SUV series with a tough front façade due to the huge hexagonal front grille which is highlighted by a chrome surround. At the front you get HD Matrix LED headlamps with LED Daytime Running Lamps and dynamic turn signals. The bonnet follows the clean look as the washer jets have been cleverly positioned in the wipers. The side profile comes with 20-inches, which can be increased to 21-inches and aluminium roof rails. The highlight of the side profile has to go to the frameless doors.

The rear houses LED tail lamps with dynamic turn indicators and are connected by a light bar that runs through the whole boot. The sporty quotient is added by the roof-mounted spoiler and dual exhaust tips exiting the lower half of the rear bumper. The Q8 is smaller and sportier in size and due to its coupe stance, its outlook than its former Audi Q7.

INTERIOR

INTERIOR

Audi Q8 interiors come with a host of technology, luxurious elements and aluminium inserts throughout the interior. The interior features leather upholstery, leather-wrapped steering wheel, electric adjustment for the front seats with memory function for the driver. There are two touchscreen systems in the centre of the dashboard where the upper unit measures 10.1-inch and the lower one measures 8.1-inch. The larger screen is the infotainment system while the smaller one controls the HVAC system for the SUV.

The touch screens come with haptic feedback and are connected to Bang & Olufsen Advanced Sound System with 3D sound. Audi also offers voice commands, navigation and wireless charger for the phones that support this feature. Luxury features include ambient lighting, four-zone climate control, a frame-less auto-dimming rearview mirror and Electric sunshades for the rear side windows with a manual sunshade for the rear window. The panoramic sunroof opens up a sense of airiness in the cabin as it draws in a lot of natural light. The driver gets cruise control with speed limiter, multi-function steering wheel with electric adjustment and Audi’s Virtual cockpit which replaces the conventional dials with a digital instrument cluster that shows the vital information to the driver.

The engine is mated to an 8-speed Dual Clutch Transmission which shifts smoothly and drives all the four wheels via Audi’s Quattro all-wheel-drive system.

Audi Q8 mileage should be around 10 kmpl on the highways and 7 kmpl in the city. However, the mileage depends on the driving habits of the driver.

Audi Q8 sits on adaptive air suspension all around the four wheels which means that the ride of the SUV is absorbent and can be changed according to the liking of the occupants. The ride can be stiffened up for the highway runs and it can be soft, supple for the bad roads that we face in India. Audi offers 7 driving modes including an “Individual” mode that can be customized by the driver. Audi Q8 acceleration from 0-100 kmph in 5.9 seconds, which is pretty quick for an SUV.

Safety is taken care of by 8 airbags, tyre pressure monitoring system, stability control and Anti-lock braking system with Electronic Brake distribution. The brakes are complimented with hydraulic brake assist and a brake booster. There is also park assist with parking aid plus which can steer the SUV and the driver would just need to accelerate, change the gears and apply the brake. Audi pre sense basic closes the windows, panoramic glass sunroof and flashes the indicators in case the system detects an emergency and hard braking.

Things to keep in mind before Buying Audi Q8

 

When buying a new car in general one must look for things like body panels that are out of line, or load bearing beams that seem to have been damaged. The next thing to check whether the paint is original or it has been repainted, a quick check under concealed plastic panels is a great way to check for unmatched paint. Another thing to check for is underbody rust in humid or sea adjacent areas.

A good way to check if the car has been rear-ended is by checking the boot. Flip open the spare wheel cover and remove the wheel completely. If the car was repaired after an accident the floor will have visible signs as the surface wouldn’t be smooth as it would in an undamaged car.

In the end, always remember to check for complete documentation including service records. Also, do check with the insurance company for any past claims, which will make you aware of the accidents the car has been involved in. Last but not the least, get the car checked from a trusted workshop before closing the deal.

Low riding soft roader, fun to be in on tarmac
for Audi Q8

The looks of this SUV are pretty awkward. The front grille and it’s head on look has a striking resemblance with Datsun Ready Go. The ride quality is good though not as good as XC90’s, it feels more like a hybrid SUV than a full fledged one. The NVH levels are pretty low as is expected from a vehicle in this price segment but it’s low ride height also means it can’t go places most hardcore SUVs can. It’s more of a soft-roader.


Audi
for Audi Q8

Audi A8 is a great car. It’s an ultra comfortable and luxurious car. I drove it more then 40000 kms . It was a good experience. Only fuel economy of petrol is slightly low but it may be because of big size
