The Audi Q8 has been spotted testing in India along with 2018 Audi A8. While the Audi A8 was revealed in the beginning of this year to the whole world, Audi Q8 specs are still under the wrap. As per reports, both the new cars are expected to hit the Indian market next year, that is, 2018.

India is a vast country and so the climatic and geographical conditions vary immensely within the boundary itself. Hence, auto-giants, like Audi, use this place for their global testing program. Generally, the new models are tested in a disguised manner, but Audi A8 test has been performed without any camouflage.

As per reports, the launch of Audi A8 in India will take place in 2018 and as usual, the Indian-spec model will get the long wheelbase format, the Audi A8L. The A8 has a unique feature on offer which can prove beneficial to the brand and to the customers alike. It will come with Audi AI, which is the latest Level 3 Autonomous capability. Along with this, Audi AI traffic jam pilot will be on offer that helps to take the responsibility of the car in slow-moving traffic and up to 60 km/hr.

Audi A8 is a gem of a car that takes care of steering, braking, starting and accelerating on its own. In other words, the driver gets the liberty to take his/her hands off the steering wheel completely. But, unfortunately, this feature is not expected to be available in the Indian specification.

The Audi Q8, which is still under production, will offer the same design as its concept form. The car would possess the dimensions of 1.70 metres in height, 5.02 metres in length and 2.04 metres wide. The latest model from the company will ride on the MLB-Evo platform like the previous Audi Q7. The Audi Q8 is likely to give tough competition to Mercedes GLE Coupe and BMW X6.
