AUDI is giving its flagship Q8 large SUV an update with new exterior looks including OLED rear lights, matrix LED units at the front and updated technology.

With new front and rear bumpers as well as prominent air intakes, the car looks more aggressive and will be available in S line, Black Edition and Vosrprung specifications.

The high performance SQ8 will come in only Black Edition and Vorsprung trims.

For the first time, Audi is equipping the Q8 with HD Matrix LED headlights, including a laser as an additional high beam on top-specification models. These headlights feature digital daytime running lights and selectable light signatures.

Digital OLED rear lights with four selectable rear light designs complete the expanded light offering.

Similar to the Audi A8 and Q5, the digital OLED rear lights in the Q8 incorporate a proximity indication feature that works in tandem with the assistance systems.

When vehicles from behind come within two metres of a stationary Q8, the control units trigger the activation of all the digital OLED segments.

Additional functions include dynamic turn signals as well as various coming home and leaving home sequences.

The Q8 range now starts with a 50 TDI quattro powered by a 268ps, six-cylinder, 3.0-litre diesel engine giving it a top speed of 150mph and a 0 to 62mph acceleration time.

Petrol models are fitted with a 3.0-litre six-cylinder engine with direct fuel injection that delivers 340ps with performance limited to 155mph and 5.6 seconds 0 to 62mph.

The SQ8 has a 4.0-litre TFSI engine with 507ps on tap endowing it with an acceleration time of 4.1 seconds and a maximum governed to 155mph.

Audi says sales are due to start in October and prices will be announced closer to the date.
