Audi Q8

Segment: Premium SUV

Drivetrain option(s): AWD

Powertrain(s): Gasoline, Hybrid, Electric

New 2018

The 2019 Audi Q8 features a wider, shorter stance than the three-row Q7, giving it sportier exterior styling. In North America, the 2019 Q8 will come equipped with a 3.0-liter turbo V-6 engine and a 48-volt mild-hybrid system with a belt start generator and lithium ion battery, similar to the redesigned A6 sedan. The all-wheel-drive system comes standard with damper control to smooth out ride and handling. The Q8 offers 10 inches of ground clearance, but the air suspension can alter the ride height by as much as 3.5 inches, depending on the driver's preference. Audi expects to begin Q8 sales in Europe by the third quarter and in North America later this year.
