At NAIAS 2017 in Detroit the manufacturer is to present the Audi Q8 concept. The near-production study represents a synthesis of the styling of a coupé and the spaciousness that typifies an SUV. “With the Audi Q8 concept, we have created a new spearhead within our Q model line. Its design strongly evokes sportiness and prestige,” declared Audi Head of Design Marc Lichte. “What’s more, 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.”

The study vehicle’s front end is imposing. The octagonal Singleframe is considerably wider than that in Audi’s current production models.
