THE 2017 Audi Q8 concept will be showcased at the upcoming North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit in January. Until its premiereai??i?? scheduled for 6.30 pm IST on January 9ai??i??everything reported about this car will be pure speculation.
Audi claims that there are plenty of design cues on the Q8 that are inspired by the 1980sai??i?? Ur-quat tro ai??i?? for instance, the ai???extremely flat but very wide C-pos t , and the prominent, flared shoulders above the wheelsai??i??.
The ai???octagonal singleframeai??i?? of the upcoming SUV is also said to be wider than anything in the German carmakerai??i??s current range of cars. From the images teased, itai??i??s evident that the singleframe front grille thatai??i??s a signature of the four rings, bears a slightly tweaked design, emphasised by the thick black chrome strip bordering it and the sharp dual fins running perpendicular to the horizontal slats.
The arrangement of the daytime running lamps and LED cluster inside the headlights looks different too. Thereai??i??s also a mention of ai???dynamic three-dimensional sculptingai??? highlighted by the muscular front bumper with massive air intakes integrated into it. The ai???e-tronai??i?? badge on the chin blade connecting the two air dams hints at the electric-hybrid powertrain of the SUV.
Once the Q8 e-tron is launched, its contenders would be the Porsche Cayenne, the BMW X6, and the Mercedes- Benz GLE. According to Audi head of design, Marc Lichte, ai???The design strongly evokes sportiness and prestige.ai??? The press release further quotes him saying, ai???We believe an important aspect of this showcar is that it offers a spacious interior with four equally comfortable seats, even with the flat roof line.ai???
