2022 Audi SQ8 – If you’ve been paying attention to auto news over the last couple of years, you probably know by now that Audi is once again gearing up to release its flagship sedan, the Audi Q8. Last year’s model was an aggressive concept that really grabbed attention. The idea behind it was that the new sedan could do everything that its bigger brother, the Audi A8, could do while keeping the space in the trunk relatively small.
Yes, the new Q8 has a lot more trunk space, and this improvement is so great that some buyers opted to buy the new car instead of the A8. However, in light of the new model’s better size, does the new Audi Squeeze deserve its new name?
What You Have to Get From 2022 Audi SQ8
With a new generation of sedans hitting the market almost every year, manufacturers struggle to keep their name at the top of mind. After all, who wants to buy a small, low-powered, high-emission SUV when you can get a much larger luxury car with better power and more refined ride and handling? With the new Audi Squeeze, manufacturers hoped to remedy that problem. It is they hope that they have done enough to fix the flaws that the previous models of the Squeeze had while at the same time improving on the luxury experience and providing a little more storage space in the back seat.
One of the most noticeable changes with the new 2022 Audi SQ8 is that it comes with new, lighter front and rear suspensions. The new units use high-performance air springs and shock absorbers that are stronger and return a higher value for the money. The front airbag and dual-link rear suspension on the Audi Squeeze are both new designs that feature high-tension design elements. They work well to reduce the body roll while improving passenger and driver safety.
The new Audi Squeeze sport coupe uses a new four.0-liter turbocharged V-8 making it one of the most powerful vehicles in its class. The Audi Squeeze also features front and rear airbags with variable air pressure deflection performance and front and rear side airbags with unique rebound damping technology.
The cabin of the Squeeze is also highly ergonomic with fully-contoured, fully adjustable seats, front and rear seat armrests, headrests, and a center console with fully-stocked cup holders. For drivers looking for an extremely long drive, the Squeeze offers eight doors and cargo space that allows for six adults to comfortably fit inside. This, in addition to its great gas mileage and superior ride and handling makes it one of the best cars to have in your garage.
A significant change that the Audi Squeeze is getting is the new Audi Sport Turismo Tour model. The Audi Sport Turismo Tour model is equipped with a mid-mounted V-8 engine, which is two inches larger than the older V8, and it has been completely redesigned for maximum driver enjoyment.
The new Audi Sport Turismo Tour model boasts a higher torque converter, and the turbo-charged engine offers up to sixty more horsepower than the current Gen five TDI. With all these power upgrades, the new Sport Turismo Tour gets a sporty, aggressive look that is sure to please the most avid of audi enthusiasts. There are also some exterior changes, such as a deeper, dual-line grille, front fender scalloped lines, front and rear bumper extensions, and a set of low-profile exhaust pipes.
On the inside, the new 2022 Audi SQ8 continues to make improvements. New and updated technologies such as the new nine-pin digital real-time torque converter enable stronger, faster shifts and greater steering control. For those who need stronger brakes, the new torque converter also incorporates a stronger brake force, delivering improved braking performance. Other technology features include:
If you are looking for a little relaxation and a bit of an edge in the ride, the new Sport Package on the 2022 Audi SQ8 will give you both. Available as a standard on the models with standard V-8 engines, the sport package on the new model includes a sport bar, active rear diffuser, front air dam, sport bucket hood, and front side air ducts.
The sport package also features a sport steering feel, adjustable suspension, and stronger brake calipers. Other standard features on the Audi sedans in the sport package range include front and rear deck locks, vehicle tracking system, auto shut off facility, leather interior, and front seat passenger package. The luxury sport package on the 2022 Audi SQ8 also offers auto shutoff facility, ambient temperature control, front seat side air vents, front seat head and fold down defrost system, and a nine-month warranty.
Audi has provided customers with a wide selection of vehicles in its lineup. However, 2022 Audi SQ8 seems to have missed out on its niche by not including any vehicle with massaging front seats. The new Multimedia Package on the Audi is aimed at providing a complete entertainment experience through its superior audio and video systems.
Available as a standard on sedans with gasoline engines, the multimedia package offers TV screens with surround sound, DVD players with dual zone controls, Bluetooth hands free operation, an audio satellite radio, front and rear cameras, and so much more.
