Audi Q8 is Coming as a Concept Car
Hitherto, Audi has had an obvious hole in the niche of luxury crossovers with the stance of a coupe. Tackling this challenge, the car maker has some big shoes to fill, because the most demand already belongs to the brilliant BMW X6 and Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe. If you still question the four-ring company’s expertise, look at the pictures of the upcoming rival.
Yes, so far it is a concept car. You are to meet the production model of the Q8 in 2019 and the vehicle will retain the concept’s underpinnings. But we have every reason to say that Audi’s product looks nothing like the almost identical BMW and Merc’s brothers.
1980 Ur-Quattro-inspired С-pillar together with the big wheel arches, prevalent horizontal lines and no common sloping roofline – this is the overall image of the new SUV. The e-tron caption hints at electric powertrain, but with such large air vents there has to be a place for the petrol or diesel engines.
The sheet will be whipped off the long-awaited Audi Q8 at 2017 Detroit auto show. Well, we’ll see it soon.
