Audi Q8 Concept: Design, Specs

The Audi Q8 Concept comes with the styling that redefines brand’s design philosophy. It looks more elegant and sportier than classic SUVs. The model features sleek body lines and rakish, coupe-like profile which add more dynamism to its presence.

The new wider and deeper grille design complemented with slender headlights also give the new identity to modern Audi. The new single-frame grille design features new shape and it includes horizontal slats and more vertical elements.  Audi also adds some design elements that get inspiration from the Audi Ur-Quattro from the 80’s. It includes wide and flat C-pillars and strongly flared fenders. There is also horizontally-oriented rear side design with full-length taillights.

As for the dimensions, the Concept model is similar in size to the latest Q7. The model has 16.5 feet in length and wheelbase of 9.8 ft. Its wheelbase is actually just 0.3 inches shorter than on the Q7 while it has 1.6 inches less in the length. With 67.2-inch height, it is 1.3-inches lower than Audi’s three-row SUV but with its pumped shoulders, the Q8 Concept has 2.9-inches more in width.

Interior, Technology:

Inside, the new concept model brings the new generation of Audi’s technologies. It includes large touch screens that replace physical controls with virtual ones. The expanded version of brand’s virtual cockpit is also present as well as the head-up display which projects the picture onto the windshield.

As the Audi says, Q8 Concept also provides ample rear legroom and seat comfort. The rear headroom is also generous despite its coupe-like roofline.
