A year and a half ago, Audi broke the news that it would be unveiling an all-new SUV in the form of the Q8. Teaser shots and a concept vehicle shown at motor shows like the North American Auto Show in Detroit gave us an idea of what the Q8 would look like. It was set to take on the likes of other premium coupe-SUVs such as the BMW X6 and Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe.
Well, the time has arrived as Audi just took the wraps off the all-new Q8. Dubbed as the top-tier model in the growing Q family, the new Q8 shows off new styling cues such as the larger Singleframe grille (first seen on the tatest-gen A8), sleek headlamps, a sloping roofline, large C-pillars, and tailgiths flanking a tin LED light bar. It’s an SUV wrapped in a sleek five-door coupe.
While the roof may be sleeker than most SUVs in the range, the cabin is actually quite generous in terms of space. The cargo hold, for instance, is pegged at 605L with the seats up. Fold those rear chairs and you get 1,755L to play with. Of course, the requisite power tailgate is part of the package, along with an optional motorized parcel shelf.
More Audi goodness can be seen up front with the two large touchscreens dominating the center dash. Another info display is placed in front of the driver and gives all the necessary driving data needed. It’s a mix of A8 but in a larger and more flexible execution.
