Audi’s ever widening portfolio of SUVs now starts with the Q2, the funky subcompact for the city. However, the German company has plans to launch the flagship Q8 model that embodies everything we like about the brand: innovative technology, sharp design, and performance.
At the dawn of the Detroit Auto Show, we got another glimpse of the Q8, well, one of the worst disguised production cars we have ever seen. It’s even got regular-sized door mirrors, and which you never see on studies these days, plus it’s road-worthy.
The Q8 earns Audi the place at the flagship SUV table, where BMW has aspirations to join with its mich-discussed X7. Well, this really is Marc Lichte’s masterpiece, taking Audi’s bold design language to the next level, while also promising even more luxury than the Q7.
Once you are able to look past the hexagonal chrome grille and the LED lights you can cut grass with, a paint gets you. It is called Bombay Blue suggests Audi wants to shake off the dull gray sedan look.
Does this combine the best elements of the coupe and an SUV? No. There’s no sloping roof, like on the BMW X6 and the Mercedes GLE Coupe.
The headroom for the rear seat passengers looks the same as in a front. The only coupe part of the design is the sloping side window, which makes a Sportback trunk stand out even more.
