A8/S8: Though it was shown this summer in Barcelona, Spain, the redesigned flagship A8 sedan won't come the U.S. until the second half of 2018. When it arrives, it will feature Audi's Traffic Jam Pilot, which the brand claims will be the first-ever Level 3 autonomous driving system.
Traffic Jam Pilot allows hands-free driving on separated highways at speeds of up to 37 mph. However, as Automotive News reported, the system will function only in regions of the country where such autonomous driving is legal.
TT/TTS/TT RS: In July, the TT RS became the final version of the redesigned sporty coupe to arrive in the U.S. on the MQB platform. Normal product cycles suggest a freshening of the series will begin in 2019.
R8: The redesigned supercar arrived in spring for the 2017 model year with a pair of V-10 engines. A Spyder version arrived in July, and a Spyder V10 Plus is due in the first half of 2018. A freshening isn't scheduled before 2021.
Q1/Q2: The brand's two smallest crossovers won't make it to the U.S.
Q3: The Q3 was freshened for the 2016 model year and will be redesigned onto the MQB platform in 2019.
Q4/TTQ: Audi is pondering an addition to its growing crossover portfolio between the Q3 and Q5, to be built on the MQB platform — possibly based on the TT Offroad concept. But no decision has been made.
Q5/SQ5: The redesigned Q5/SQ5 appeared in U.S. dealerships this year and are due for a freshening in 2021.
Q7: Audi's large crossover was redesigned in 2016. A freshening is due in 2020 based on the brand's standard product cycle.
Q8: The next utility vehicle at the larger end of Audi's lineup will arrive in late 2018 as a sportback crossover with coupelike proportions and seating for five. The Q8 also will be among the models to get a plug-in hybrid powertrain.
E-tron crossover: Audi's EV crossover will go on sale in 2019 in the U.S. to lead the brand's bid to capture EV market share in the premium segment.
Similar in size to a Q7, the e-tron Quattro crossover is expected to hew closely to the concept's 310-mile range and serve as Audi's answer to the Tesla Model X.
