    Audi Q8

    Another day.................... another niche filled for Audi. More Russian doll styling from the masters of copy and paste design but buyers continue to lap it up so who can really blame them. No doubt it will be yet another car to wear the 4 ring badge that is praised for build quality and tech but is found lacking in the stir your senses driving department.

    RS Q8 is coming this year as far as I heard... Smiley Over 600 hp (less than Urus though).

    What is the problem with the car? The market wants it, the Q7 was/is a bestseller. Smiley

    Re: Audi Q8

    Looks more like a SUV than the sorry Q7. Never figured out if that was supposed to be a SUV or a bloated wagon.


    Re: Audi Q8

    I'm not sure they have made the grill large enough   People surely won't recognise it as an Audi with one that small on it  

    Here is the facelift smiley

    Doesn’t make a bit of difference as the Q7 is a sales success in many markets. 


    Re: Audi Q8

    I like the “poor man” Ursus. Visually Q8 looks much better than Q7. The proportions are fine. I wouldn’t call it a SUV coupe. 

    As RS Q8 it could follow my S8+ as next DD.

    Some sources state that the grey finished grille is with the S-Line trim package.  Standard treatments are body coloured with the de rigueur black optics option in, of course, a black finish. 


    Re: Audi Q8

    The tail lights are nicely executed.....  Much better than the ones on the Cayenne. 

    Other than that, it is just hideous. Maybe it is on purpose to make the Bentayga look good.

    Agreed. Why not? I drive the poor man's Huracan (R8). Smiley

    Lets wait for the Cayenne Coupe.

    I think it looks too clinically "clean", too perfect. We'll see...but right now, I like the Urus most, then the Q8 (the RS Q8 will add a bit of Urus "vibe").

    Re: Audi Q8

    I find it nice looking to be honest.

    what is the size of this whale compared to a cayenne? bigger, same or smaller?

    I think it would look better with a completely blacked out grille...true.

    Re: Audi Q8

    What is this car supposed to be? A large crossover?


    Re: Audi Q8

    No just a normal SUV - just like a Cayenne with a little bit of coupe design.

    Re: Audi Q8

    So what is the point vs the Q7?


    Re: Audi Q8

    Normally don't like cars in this segment, but must say I like this better than the competitors and would also pick this over a Q7.

    Reminds a lot of the E-tron prototype.


    Re: Audi Q8

    The United Kingdom Audi website has several embedded photographs of the Q8 with the body coloured grille surround. The link is www.audi.co.uk

    Re: Audi Q8

    Q8 looks just right for a large SUV to my eyes. Am a big fan of the front grill.

    The side profile works well at hiding the bulk; and the rear is the best of any Audi today.

    Not ugly, better looking than Q7 and the RS Q8 will certainly have a sportier look.

    Possible RS Q8 look...

    Re: Audi Q8

    not at all. The s-line trim fits better a darker color
