The car is said to offer buyers a perfect combination between the versatility of a big SUV and the sophistication of a 5-door coupe. At first glance, the Q8 seems to get the same dimension as the Q7 but thanks to its sloping roofline design, the Q8 is much lower than its brother. Besides, with a 118’’ wheelbase, the Q8 boasts a surprisingly spacious cabin, which makes the new Q model can confidentially go head to head with some other serious rivals including the Mercedes-Benz GLE-Coupe and BMW X6.
