Audi took the wraps off the facelifted Q8 and SQ8 at the IAA Mobility 2023 in Munich. The coupe SUV flagship gains mild visual updates focused on the lighting units, and new options for the colors and wheels alongside a technology boost in order to stay relevant and desirable at the top of the automaker’s food chain.
The facelifted Q8 remains instantly recognizable with designers taking an evolutionary approach in line with Audi’s strategy. The highlight is the new optional HD Matrix LED headlights with a laser working alongside the high beams, and digital DRLs creating different kinds of light signatures. The taillights have also received updated graphics with OLED technology doing their own gimmicks.
The octagon Singleframe grille has also been redesigned with a new pattern featuring vertical slits on the standard Q8, or L-shaped accents on the S line package and the SQ8. The grille is flanked by the revised bumper intakes, highlighted by generously sized aluminum-style or black trim pieces. A fresh color palette and new options for the alloy wheels measuring up to 23 inches round up the visual enhancements.
