With numerous S-specific elements, the Audi SQ8 TDI proves its sporty appearance. Its powerful front is characterised by the standard fully painted S-bumper. The octagon single-frame grille features vertical twin blades, while the progressively shaped side air intake grilles are matt titanium black. The dynamic, coupé-like outline really stands out, especially in the side view. S-specific side skirts and standard 21-inch wheels further highlight the sporty character of the Audi SQ8 TDI. Optionally, you can also opt for 22-inch wheels and callipers painted in red. A horizontal design language dominates at the rear with the continuous light strip, the S-specific diffuser and the four permeated tailpipes.
The Audi SQ8 TDI is powered by a 4.0 litre TDI engine. The twin-turbo V8 engine produces 320 kW (435 hp) and generates a maximum torque of 900 Newton metres. A standard electrically-driven compressor supports the turbocharger, therefore ensuring a particularly good starting performance and homogeneous power development over the entire engine speed range. The acceleration time of the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h is 4.8 seconds, and the maximum speed is regulated at 250 km/h. The likewise standard 48-volt mild-hybrid system reduces fuel consumption through energy recovery and a situation-dependent shutdown of the engine while driving – the “sailing mode”.
A pioneering operating concept, including a large range of standard infotainment and Audi connect** – this is what is waiting for you in the Audi SQ8 TDI. In the high-resolution 12.3-inch display of the standard Audi virtual cockpit in front of you, you will find all the important indicators such as the tachometer, speedometer, clock, fuel level and remaining range. The standard top infotainment system MMI navigation plus with MMI touch response with its two displays in the centre console area is your gateway to the digital world.
