First revealed at the 2017 North American Auto Show as a concept, the Audi Q8 essentially is a sporty iteration of the car maker’s flagship SUV, the Q7. The production variant that you see here in the pictures isn’t too different from what the concept looked like. The sloping angle of the roof and the windscreen is almost similar, the humongous front grille is nearly identical and those sharp headlamps simply hit the spot.

Like the concept, the doors could lose their window frames and Audi’s single piece LED taillight which runs across the tailgate will remain. For the sporty intent to come through, tasty bits like a rear spoiler, sharp fins in the diffuser, trapezoidal exhaust pipes and hulk hogan haunches will be retained.

The Audi Q8 is based on the MLB Evo platform that carries the bigger Q7 as well. The interior of the Q8, however, will be radically different from the Q7 and will feature some of the best tech that Audi has to offer inside the cabin. The Audi Q8 will have new functions, including the streaming service Spotify, Google Play Music and Google Assistant – all of them running on the large MMI touch display in the centre of the dashboard. The information is also visible in the Audi virtual cockpit in the driver’s direct field of view. The futuristic styling of the interior will set the tone for all premium models of future Audi cars.

Power sources won’t have to really bother about efficiency and the Q8 may be powered by a 2.0-liter TFSI engine with 252 hp of power and 370 Nm of torque. There will also be a more powerful 3.0-liter TFSI V6 with 333 hp and 440 Nm.  While these are the petrol powered options, as 3.0-litre diesel burning V6 is an obvious choice for countries which have a liking for the dirty fuel like ours.
