Audi Q8 series crossover revealedJune 5, 2018
The official premiere of the coupe-like crossover Audi Q8 will be held in China today. However, a detailed photo session of the production car has already leaked into the network: it allegedly was published in error by the Portuguese edition of the Observador. The publication from his site has already been deleted.
However, the company did not hide the appearance of the new car much earlier. Almost non-camouflaged copies as early as the last year met on the roads of Europe.
However, nothing surprising: judging by the photos published by the Portuguese, the car differs little from the Detroit show car Audi Q8 concept, not only externally, but also in the cabin. Except, perhaps, the configuration of the air ducts on the front panel and a solid rear sofa instead of separate seats.
The pictures clearly show the 50 TDI quattro nameplates on the stern of the SUV. Obviously, they belong to the all-wheel drive car with a three-liter strong diesel engine with a power of 286 hp. It is expected that the gamma at the outset will also include versions of 45 TDI (231 hp) and 55 TFSI (340 hp), all of which will be the so-called “soft hybrids” with an auxiliary starter generator. Later, full hybrids and a charged version of SQ8 will appear. However, this is only an assumption so far. Full official information will appear throughout the day.
