New 2018 Audi A8 Redesign, Release Date and Price
New technology is very quick. Everything can change in just a few second if it is all about technology. Do you know what goes faster than technology? The rumors! A few months ago, Audi confirmed that they would put the new 2018 Audi A8 on their list and they will send it to the showrooms as 2018 model. Now, it has been caught for its test at Nurburgring with dramatic change. Although it has the same size and shape, it seems wider with the new “Singleframe” grille from Audi. The grille is more pronounced which is the first advantage for those who anticipate it.
It was spotted with heavy camouflage and it will use a new MLB Evo platform that is also used by the Audi Q7. We believe that the new platform helps it a lot to cut the current weight for its engine performance especially the indication of using a plug-in hybrid. The tuned suspension is possible to add. The biggest change will be the reshaped grille up front with the longer slants on the upper corner and it seems goes parallel with the headlights. This makes the new 2018 Audi A8 has a sleeker look and it is so different from Chrysler 300 if you see the up front. About the front end, it has more slanted headlights because the reshaped and shorter grille so that the hood bends over in the front to give ideal nose. Its design is more muscular. We think that they do not have to change the side profile. It may have sharper door handles and the back may get slightly revised rear fascia as well as redesigned taillights.
Like others, we cannot give you even a single spy shot about the new look around the interior. It would not be easy for spy photographers to do that. 2018 Audi A8 is predicted to have minor changes because the current model is still good. It will only go with mild changes such as more simplified center console, refreshed instrument cluster, new HVAC vents layout, new steering wheel and those changes are a good starter to create an upscale cabin design. On the top of the center stack, the infotainment screen might be upgraded, we mean the software.
