At the North American
International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit in January 2017, Audi is to present
the Audi Q8 concept. The near-production study represents a synthesis of the
emotional styling of a coupé and the spaciousness that typifies an SUV. With
this move, the brand is unlocking a new segment for the full-size category.
“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,
adding that “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 octagonal Singleframe is
considerably wider than that in Audi’s current production models. It is
positioned well forward, with three-dimensional sculpting. Many design elements
of the Q8 concept are reminiscent of the Audi Ur-quattro of the 1980s. They
include the extremely flat but very wide C-post, and the prominent, flared
shoulders above the wheels. These balanced proportions give equal emphasis to
the front and rear wheels – typically quattro.
