The interior of the new RS Q8 features a deliberately clean design. All elements beneath the completely black cloth headlining have a logical connection and harmonize with one another. The headlining is optionally available in lunar silver cloth, Alcantara lunar silver or Alcantara black.
The slim instrument panel and the strongly horizontal lines convey a feeling of spaciousness. The central element in the cockpit is the top MMI touch response display. With its black-panel look, it almost dissolves into a large, black surface when switched off. Another primary design element is the wide, symmetrical console of the center tunnel. Framing it are metallic design elements in Aluminum Race, anthracite, which underscore the sporty character of the RS Q8.
Sporty luxury: RS-sport seats with ventilation
The sport seats in black pearl Nappa leather / Alcantara fit in perfectly with the athletic atmosphere of the high-performance SUV coupé. An even more luxurious option is available in the form of RS sport seats covered with Valcona leather in black or cognac, featuring a honeycomb pattern and an embossing of the RS logo. In addition to a massage function, the RS sport seats are perforated to also provide ventilation.
Detail-focused: the RS-specific interior
In the interior, the RS emblem is found on the steering wheel and on the selector lever. The illuminated front door sill trims sport an RS Q8 logo. Logo projectors on the front and rear doors beam the Audi Sport emblem onto the ground when the doors are open. The fully perforated RS sport leather steering wheel flattened at the bottom with shift paddles also integrates multifunction buttons. The driver can directly select the new Audi drive select modes RS1 and RS2 via the RS MODE button. This automatically opens the RS-specific displays in the Audi virtual cockpit.
Individual: RS design packages, inlays and expanded leather package
The two RS design packages include red or gray contrasting stitching on the knee pads, steering wheel rim, floor mats, selector lever and the edges of the seat belts. With both design packages, the center console, selector lever and RS sport leather steering wheel are designed in Alcantara. Additional choices include inlays in carbon matt, gray oak or aluminum spectrum. The extended leather package also includes the upper door panels and takes the ambiance even further upscale.
Dynamic lighting: the atmosphere LED light
The contour atmosphere lighting package in the new RS Q8** underscores the interior design in darkness and presents the space, volume and materials. The ambient light makes the dashboard and center console seem to float, and in the door it enhances the sense of space. The contour light traces the large lines on the center console and in the door panels and can be set to any of 30 colors.
Generous: the variable space concept
With a wheelbase of 2,996 mm (118.0 in), the RS Q8 offers ample space for five people. A three-seat rear bench that slides up to 10 cm (3.9 in) is standard. Large storage compartments and pockets, particularly in the doors, prepare the large SUV coupé for long trips. Together, they have a volume of more than 14 l (0.5 cu ft).
The luggage compartment of the RS Q8 has 605 l (21.4 cu ft) of space as standard; with the backrests folded down, it has up to 1,755 l (62.0 cu ft). An electric tailgate is standard; foot-activated gesture control is available as an option. The electric luggage compartment cover is another convenience option. Guided on rails, it automatically retracts when the tailgate is opened.
