2019 Audi Q8 Concept
2019 Audi Q8
2019 Audi Q8 Changes, Review – We heard the news of the new 2019 Audi Q8 and at the annual press conference, the manufacturer confirmed that in June they will present their luxury crossover SUV in Shanghai. The Q8 was seen almost without dissimulation and when we take a look at the spy photos, we can see that it will be based on the Q8 E-Tron concept and the Q8 Sport Conceptual models. He will ride on the same MLB-Evo platform that also supports the Q7. In addition, they will be approximately the same size. Unlike the Q7 that comes standard with a three-row seat configuration, the Audi Q8 will offer four seats. However, a five-seat configuration will be optional.
Visually, the new Audi Q8 will feature an octagonal grille and finer headlights that look a lot like the last Audi A8 2019 and give it a more spectacular look. under the hood, the new Audi will offer engine options, consisting of 4-cylinder, V-6, V-eight, but additionally a plug-in hybrid powertrain. In addition, it is most likely that the manufacturer adapts it to an autonomous technology. The main competitors of the Q8 will be the BMW X6, the Range Rover Velar, and the Mercedes-AMG GLE Coupé.
2019 Audi Q8 Exterior
The 2019 Audi Q8 will be based on the same MLB-Evo architecture as the Q7. However, compared to the Q7, the Q8 will be 0.3 inches shorter and 2.9 inches wider. As for the exterior design, the Audi Q8 will look very appealing. The front may be ruled by the big octagonal grille and slender LED headlights. On the back, there will be full-width modern taillights.
The Q8 Concept aims to conserve more space for the rear seats and more tailgate. The waistline Q8 (the line at the base of the side windows) moves upward from the front fenders to the rear pillar, giving it an aggressive position with forwarding lean.
The Q8 will share its platform with the more traditional Audi Q7 2017, with a place at the top of our ranking of medium-sized luxury SUVs. The conceptual version of the Q8 includes the Audi Matrix laser headlights. The fact that they are available in the production version depends on their use approved by the US government.
2019 Audi Q8 Interior
Unlike the Q7, the 2019 Audi Q8 will not have the third row and will offer a seat for four passengers. However, a five-seat configuration will be optional. There will be plenty of free space even for the rear passengers despite a sloping roofline. In addition, the cargo room is good and offers a space of 22.2 cubic feet. In the technology department, the Q8 will arrive with a large number of modern infotainment and security features.
A number of the issues that have an effect on the coupe-fashion SUVs are the loss of application because of reduced space for rear passengers and smaller shipment regions which can be extra difficult to get admission to due to deep back thresholds. it seems that Audi avoids these troubles with the Q8.
While the cargo space of the Q8 will surely be somewhat compromised by the steep rear window, it does not look as important as in other SUV coupes. The space for the rear seats seems generous within the concept.
There are four seats in the Q8 Concept but do not be surprised if the final production model includes at least the option to carry five. The shape of the rear Q8 Concept probably prevents the third row of seats.
