Combining modern technology with design cues taken from the original 1980’s road & rally car Ur-Quattro, the 2019 Audi Q8 introduces a new look for the brand’s popular Q line, one that is sure to raise mixed feelings.

The Q8 sits lower and wider than its predecessor, just like a svelte coupe, while its bold front-end with octagonal single-frame grille reminds us that this is an SUV at its core. Power figures are yet to be revealed, but we do know that each drivetrain will feature a “mild-hybrid” technology.

All-wheel-drive will be available on tap of course, and the latest MMI infotainment system will offer haptic and acoustic feedback matched with a Bang & Olufsen 3D sound system. The Q8 is set to be released by the end of this year.
