Having already updated the appearance of the 2024 Audi Q8 e-tron, the German luxury automaker unveiled a similarly revised look to the gas-powered Q8 lineup on Tuesday.
The biggest modification comes up front, where Audi uses HD Matrix LED headlights on the Q8 for the first time, along with a laser high beam and multiple, selectable light signatures. The grille’s design has also been reworked, with a sleeker appearance that better integrates with its new headlamps. Larger front air inlets and a reworked front spoiler complete the front-end facelift.
The design updates are mirrored in the rear by four configurable digital OLED rear lights, along with redesigned exhaust outlets and rear diffuser. Finally, Audi is offering new wheel designs, with sizes ranging from 21 through 23 inches. And in case you forget what you’re driving, the model name is now displayed on the B-pillar.
Inside, all models now come with contrast seat stitching and modified trim inlays. Audi has also upgraded its infotainment system to work with more third-party apps, including Spotify and Amazon music. Audi has also upgraded the Q8’s standard equipment list to include 20-inch alloy wheels, a rearview camera, park and high beam assist, and a convenience key.
But the Q8’s powertrain lineup remains unchanged, with the Q8’s 3.0-liter V-6 and 48-volt hybrid system generating 335 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. There’s also the SQ8, rated at 500 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque. Both come with an 8-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.
Look for the 2024 Audi Q8 to go on sale this winter, with pricing and further specifications announced closer to its launch.
