There is a great deal of excitement for the upcoming Audi Q8 which was shown in concept in Detroit. We are expecting this to be the flagship vehicle for the carmaker and it is coming with the best technology and luxury yet to be seen from Audi. There is another big luxury packed SUV coming our way though and this is the 2018 BMW X7.
Both of the big luxury SUVs are going to offer up plenty of tech and each will be the best the carmakers have to offer. There isn’t a great deal of information out there about either of the vehicles so we can only speculate right now.
The 2018 Audi Q8 is going to offer up the very latest in autonomous driving technology and it will bring a lot of the technology that was seen in the Audi SQ7 TDI, it is thought. We could see the electric turbocharger, a 48 volt electrical subsystem and active anti-roll bar. It is also thought that the Q8 will bring with it plenty of luxury equipment.
The BMW X7 is going to be built around the CLAR Platform of BMW and this is the same underpinning the 7 and 5 series from the carmaker. We are expecting to see it packed with the latest technology, possibly some of which comes from the 7 series.
We know that there is going to be an extra trim level on offer with the BMW X7 and an ultra-luxurious version is going to be offered. This means that it will be going up against the Bentley Bentayga along with the Audi SQ7 TDI.
We cannot wait for both the Audi SQ7 and the BMW X7 to make their way out and go head to head with each other. But which do you think will come out on top?
