Even if you have seen one single James Bond movie, you know who Q is: the delightful gentleman who equips the titular hero with his impressive and often life-saving gadgets. Audi Mister Q perhaps draws inspiration from the character. The latest addition to the Q family – that already includes models Q2, Q3, Q5 and Q7 – the new Q8 is the ideal partner for leisure driving. A successful and attractive mix of a luxury four-door coupé and a versatile USV, the Q8 leaves a strong first impression with its Singleframe radiator grille borrowed from the beloved Audi Quattro. Sporty and dynamic without compromising on comfort, the new Q8 is an SUV like no other in the Audi range. As robust as it is sporty, Q8 is an off-road beast that will be just as happy on asphalt. Wider, shorter and lower – at 4.99 m length, 2.00 m width and 1.71 m height – than the previous model, the new Q8 has that easily recognizable sturdy off-road look. Obsessive about details, the designers at Audi have made the interior all about clarity. Easy-to-understand symbols stand for the digital precision from Audi and for the high level of integration of architecture and operation. The central element is the top MMI touch response display. With its black – panel look, it almost dissolves into a large, black surface when switched off. All elements refer logically to one another, from the flat air vent strip to the wide console on the center tunnel bearing the tiptronic selector lever. The online services from Audi connect add predictive features to the route planning process. In addition to all this, the natural language voice control turns the Audi Q8 into an intelligent dialog partner – it can even understand shorter sentences like, for example, I am hungry, and suggest nearby restaurants. Whether parking, in the city or on long journeys – the Audi Q8 supports its driver in many situations. Among the systems contributing here are the adaptive cruise assist, efficiency assist, crossing assist, lane change warning, curb warning and 360 degree cameras. Options including customized contour seats with massage function and ventilation, four-zone automatic air conditioning and the air quality package further enhance the elegant ambiance, as well as parking assistance accessible via myAudi smart-phone app. Q would definitely be happy with the Q8 – and so would James Bond.
