Audi Q8 Shows Off Stylish Lines In New Teaser Photos

Audi has been teasing a mysterious model on Facebook and Twitter recently and the company has finally released a revealing teaser image which appears to show the Q8.

The company isn’t saying much about the model but promised it will be introduced shortly and this suggests an unveiling at Auto China. Audi went on to say the crossover “carries the gene of the Urquattro” and sports a “new face with luxury class prestige engraved into every detail.”

That’s not much to go one but the teaser images show the Q8 will have a wide Singleframe grille and sporty styling cues. Details are hard to make out but the photoluminescent tape reveals a sloping roof which meets a rakish D-pillar. We can also see muscular rear fenders, massive alloy wheels and slender taillights. Since the model was previewed by the Q8 and Q8 Sport concepts, we can also expect a sporty front fascia with large air intakes.

The interior promises to be high-tech and luxurious as photos have shown drivers will sit behind a digital instrument cluster and find themselves surrounded by leather upholstery and metallic accents. Drivers will also find a leather-wrapped steering wheel, distinctive air vents and modern infotainment system.

Audi hasn’t said much about the model but it will ride on the MLB Evo platform and be offered with an assortment of different engines. The entry-level model is expected to use a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that produces around 252 hp (188 kW). Buyers can also expect a more powerful turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 with around 355 hp (263 kW).

A plug-in hybrid variant should eventually join the lineup and it will reportedly have a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine, an electric motor and lithium-ion battery pack. This could enable the model to produce a combined maximum output of around 443 hp (330 kW). More importantly, the crossover could have an electric-only range of up to 37 miles (59 km).

If that wasn’t enough variety, we can expect even more powerful S Q8 and RS Q8 variants. The latter is expected to have a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 producing around 530 hp (395 kW).
