Large wheels, low ground clearance, sophisticated aerodynamics and a sporty yet elegant design. These are the words that perfectly describe the upcoming Audi Q8. According to German magazine AutoBild, Audi will introduce in 2015 a Q8 Coupe, a vehicle based on the next-generation Q7, that will take on cars such as the Bmw X7 or the Mercedes-Benz GL Coupe.
Audi will offer a splendid automobile featuring a striking design consisting of an updated front grille, redesigned LED lights, flared wings and futuristic taillights. Comparing it with the new Q7, the Q8 will be positioned higher and despite its size it will be an elegant vehicle. If the Q7 successor will offer a four-cylinder gasoline engine, the upcoming Q8 will probably ditch the powerplant as Audi wants to offer a more expensive third-row SUV.
Still, the Audi Q8 might receive the four-cylinder engine but only in the hybrid version. The well-known 3.0-liter V6 diesel and petrol engine will be the most popular choices on the Q8, but Audi will also offer a mower powerful V8 petrol engine with around 435 hp. Moreover, a V8 diesel engine will be available, developing around 400 hp. All Audi Q8 models will be offered as standard with an eight-speed automatic transmission. More details to be revealed!
