Audi Q8 Leasing
Audi's New Coupe SUV
The Audi Q8 is different - different from the rest of the Q family, and taking a path of its own amongst all peers across the automotive kingdom. The Q8 is forward and fierce in looks, with the practical punch and technological innards that deliver a bite on par with its bark. The Q genes have taken a turn for the unexpected with this one, which delivers on criteria across the board.
Coupe Design and New 2020 Styling
The Q8 pays its respects to its successful cousin the A8 in its bulky proportions and snarling up-front design cues. The four-door five-seater also shows signs of Q heritage in its coupe styling, with a sloping rear roof and neat frameless doors. The wheel arches speak of muscly definition and powerful size, whilst LED lighting and feature lines add notes of sharp sophistication. Inside the Q8’s cabin, the dashboard shimmers through several tech panels - most notably the Virtual Cockpit, which delivers an in-situ sat-nav experience right there in the vehicle, delivering the driver a virtual representation of reality in real-time, just behind the steering wheel. The Q8’s rear is spacious enough for a family to clamber into, and the overall look is one of clean, dark, moody metallics.
Huge Specifications that Come as Standard
Giving two options for drivers working with differing budgets, the Q8 is available as the base S-Line or the Vorsprung. The S-Line is well kitted-out, whilst the Vorsprung comes with much of the best that Audi currently has to offer.
S-Line: the younger of the twins gets 21” alloy wheels, air suspension, and 48-volt mild hybrid tech, allowing for functions such as engine coasting off-throttle; an extended, smoother and improved stop-start function; and reduced turbo lag. The car also features Matrix LED lighting, leather trim, climate control, electrical assistance and the Virtual Cockpit, plus an eight-speed automatic gearbox and various safety features.
Vorsprung: twin number one gets additional items such as dynamic all-wheel steer plus a whole host of Audi’s other features all included as standard. There are 22” alloy wheels, heated rear seats, all-wheel steering and a panoramic glass sunroof. Audio kit comes courtesy of Bang & Olufsen.
A Powerful SUV Performer
Surprising for its size, the Q8 is a quick and comfortable cruising vehicle with a penchant for good, controlled cornering. Driving modes - seven in total - have a real, distinguishable effect on the car’s performance, with ‘Comfort’ providing a softer ride; ‘Dynamic’ feeling firm and responsive, whilst dropping the car by 40mm; and an off-road mode that takes the suspension up 50mm making it ready to hit slightly rockier terrain. A four-wheel steering option makes three-points a matter of ease.
- Standard engine size: 3.0-litre diesel
- 0-62mph: 6.30 seconds
