The Audi Q8 is a luxury SUV (E-segment in Europe) manufactured by the German marque Audi. It shares a platform with the rest of the Volkswagen Group’s high-performance SUVs, such as the Bentley Bentayga, the Lamborghini Urus, the Porsche Cayenne, the VW Touareg and its big brother, the Audi Q7.
This Audi flagship SUV is a smaller Crossover than the Q7, but with a sportier design. It was presented in 2017 and went on sale in 2018 with the intention of competing against the BMW X6 and the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupé. Thus, it began a new category within the automobile: the ‘SUV Coupé‘.
