Audi’s signature Q series is on the verge of a creative overhaul, fusing sleek coupe-like sensibilities to its rough and tumble SUV lineup. In comparison to its Q7 predecessor, the new Q8 can be described as a wide-bodied five-seater that sits considerably lower than the former, boasting an octagonal single-frame grille and a conjoined light fixture/taillight combo that artistically rips a page from its Audi Quattro counterpart.

Although engine specs still have yet to be confirmed, the new vehicle will power up from the system’s mild-hybrid technology with Quattro all-wheel-drive capabilities also included.
