The forthcoming 2024 Audi Q8 is a two-row crossover SUV, like the Q7 model. Two models are very similar, although the Q8 model is sleeker and more upright. On the other hand, Q7 comes with three rows of seats. The Audi Q8 model is known for its good ride quality and agile handling. Furthermore, it comes with premium interior and impressive performance.
You can choose between various trim levels, including the RSQ8, SQ8 and Q8 e-Tron. The next model will receive a nice refresh, which will cover numerous visual upgrades and interior updates. On the other hand, things under the bonnet should remain intact.
Changes and Upgrades
The first spy photos are here, and we saw the new 2024 Audi Q8 with numerous updates. For a start, we saw new bumpers and redesigned lights. Audi will also improve the vehicle’s aerodynamics. The e-Tron model will get a new grille and a light bar over the logo. This version will also receive new air suspension, adjustable ride height, and new air springs for better steering.
The interior will be better, as Audi plans to deliver more standard amenities. A 10.1-inch touchscreen will sit above the smaller 8.6-inch unit from now on. We expect to see additional optional features, including numerous safety aids. Thanks to various trim levels, the Audi Q8 is very customizable. You can choose between the base variant or opt for the sportier S-Line. Furthermore, you can buy one of the models with real luxury for a significantly higher price.
What we like about the 2024 Audi Q8 is its wide range of available engine options. The e-Tron variant is powered by two motors, providing 350 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque. There is also the S-Line model with 415 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque. Audi will once again provide the standard AWD Quattro system on those models.
Reportedly, Audi has no intentions to deliver more power, but we expect to see a higher driving range. Thanks to that, the next model will have 370 miles of driving range, which is a significant upgrade over the outgoing model.
Audi Q8 Features
Beside numerous trim levels, the 2024 Audi Q8 also offers numerous optional packages. For example, the Premium Package adds leather seats with massage functions, ambient lighting, and additional USB ports. The leather package is quite similar, although it focuses more on luxury and comfort than on technology.
If you are looking for more high-tech features, there is the Technology Package. This optional kit provides more driver-assistance aids, including adaptive cruise control, traffic sign recognition, and active lane assist. Moreover, Audi will also offer Black Optics package, which offers black interior, stealthier appearance and much more.
2024 Audi Q8 Price and Release Date
The price of the next 2024 Audi Q8 will start at around $75,000 and go over $90,000. The competition is fierce, and this crossover SUV will hit the roads in the latter stages of 2023.
