2018 Audi A8 Exterior

If we have to tell you what is on our mind when it comes to its redesign, we can answer it quickly. As far as we know, the company gave us some hints from all this year by showing the concept of Prologue. Marc Lichte is the one behind the reason for this prototype to develop. With this concept, the new 2018 A8 will get huge and wide hexagonal grille while the headlights will be redesigned with the more explicit look for its body as well as the bumper. The hood is also sculpted. It is safe to say that the design has been used by the current Audi A5 Coupe. To mark it as the latest version, it will be signed as D5 and the updated doors will be presented. Audi will also reduce the glazing part and the headlamps will get full LED look to its active turn signal. We also hear that they will use 100% of body under the latest MLB Evo platform and this way will be helpful to cut the current weight and to give more technical capabilities.

2018 Audi A8 Interior

Thanks to the use of the MLB Evo platform that will also give positive impact inside the cabin of this new generation. It has wider interior capacity and its ergonomics can be improved. For the drivers, they can use Virtual Cockpit, infotainment system that can be controlled via gestures, auto driving modes and other high-technology details in 2018 Audi A8.

2018 Audi A8 Engine

With the latest platform version, there is a big sign that it will get some new alternative engines such as electric motors. It gives you absolute power as what Audi always do in other cars. 2018 Audi A8 is expected to hit the market with several top powertrains. It is possible to use bi-turbo W12 engines and 6.0 liter that is borrowed from Bentley Bentayga which is capable to create even 600 hp and 663 lb-ft of torque power. The new top-end engine is the W12 that is for this car, we assume. For those who need the alternative, we think that the most reasonable engine can be TDI V8 4.0 liter that is from SQ7 which is quite unique to provide 435 hp, twin turbo as well as electric supercharger. For the rest, they will use the existing engines such as TDI and TFSI with V6 format. All-electric version of E-tron is quite potential to use.
