2020 Audi Q8: News, SQ8, RS Q8, Price

Audi’s recently introduced, full-size, luxury SUV provides
seats for five in a premium cabin and gets attention with the
sporty, coupe-like appearance. The model equips also the top
tech and safety features. The power comes from the single
turbocharged V-6 engine and all-wheel drive is standard. The Q8
goes against BMW X5 and X6, Mercedes GLE, Volvo XC90, Range
Rover Sport, etc.

The model debuted for the 2019 market year and Audi is already
preparing new versions to expand the lineup. The next 2020 Audi
Q8 will get more potent and aggressively styled SQ8 and RS Q8
versions. Two models were already spotted testing but Audi
still hides their specs and release date. Other changes for the
new model year could include new trim option and color and
wheel choices.

2020 Audi Q8: Powertrains

The handsome and well-equipped Audi Q8 can be had with the
single engine in its first model year. Under the hood of the
model is a 3.0-liter turbocharged V-6 engine paired with the
8-speed automatic transmission. This unit makes 335 hp and
torque of 369 pound-feet. The model also gets the
all-wheel-drive system by default which distributes 40 percent
of the power to the front wheels and 60 percent to the rear
under normal conditions. Depending on the road and conditions
the system can route up to 70 percent of power up front or up
to 80 percent to the rear wheels to provide optimal traction
and performance.

With this setup, Audi Q8 needs 5.9 seconds for 60 mph and EPA
estimated its efficiency to 22 mpg combined. The model comes
also with the standard adaptive suspension with the air
suspension available as an option.

SQ8 and RS Q8:

The SQ8 and RS Q8 will provide better performance and get an
upgraded suspension and tweaked chassis. It’s still unconfirmed
what powering options models will use.

The SQ8 could adopt something similar as the Q8 Sport Concept
model which combined a 3.0-liter turbocharged V-8 engine and
electric motor for the total output around 469 hp and torque of
516 pound-feet. If that would be the case, the model would be
able to hit 60 mph in about 4.7 seconds.

The RS Q8 could reportedly use the powertrain from the Panamera
Turbo S E-Hybrid. This setup mixes a 4.0-liter bi-turbo V-8
with the electric motor for the total output around 670 hp and
626 pound-feet of torque. Another possibility could be a
4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 like the Lamborghini Urus with the
output around 641 hp. In any case, the model will use a
sophisticated all-wheel-drive system, adaptive suspension and
upgraded brakes to keep the model on the
track.

2020 Audi Q8: Design

The Audi Q8 has a sportier appearance than the closely relative
Q7. The massive, single-frame grille dominates up front
combined with the sharp headlights and sporty front bumper. The
line of the hood, profile sculpting and roofline give it a
racier look than the Q7. The rear is also modern defined with
nice taillights, sculpted tailgate and nicely fitted rear
bumper.

The 2020 Audi Q8 should appear with two even sportier versions.
The new models will highlight their performance orientation
with the larger air inlets in the front bumper, larger brake
rotors and dual-pipe exhaust setup.

Interior, equipment:

Inside the cabin, Audi Q8 has modern dash design and employs
high-quality materials combined with the latest tech features.

Even the base version will get keyless entry and ignition, a
sunroof, tri-zone climate control, leather surfaces, heated
front seats, etc. The standard tech equipment will include the
brand’s new MMI system with larger 10.1-inch center screen for
the navigation and entertainment and smaller 8.6-inch unit
positioned below to manage inputs and climate controls. The
base equipment will also cover forward collision warning and
low-speed auto braking.

With more money spent for upper trims, buyers can get
19-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system, wireless charging,
head up display, upgraded leather upholstery, multi-contour
seats with massaging function, a night-vision system, etc. The
additional safety equipment will include blind-spot monitoring,
active lane control, adaptive cruise control and traffic sign
recognition system.

2020 Audi Q8: Release, Price

Audi should reveal more details about new sportier versions by
the end of the year. The 2020 Audi Q8 should again cost from
around $67, 400. The RS Q8 could cost as much as $130, 000.
