2018 Audi Q8 Is Sticking It To BMW X6

By  | 

Audi is showing BMW that they are not going to be left behind when it comes to coupes. BMW came up with the BMW X6, the coupe spin-off of the BMW X5, so Audi have come up with the 2018 Audi Q8, a coupe sibling to the Audi Q7.

We haven’t yet seen the 2018 Audi Q8 properly as spy shots have only revealed the vehicle on the Q7 frame. This was the reason why Audi didn’t bother to camouflage it.

Just as with the X6, the 2018 Audi Q8 is going to show off a roofline that is sportier but it will have the MLB platform of Volkswagen. This is what helped the Q7 to lose more than 700lbs.

The new SUV is thought to be offering up a new V8 turbocharged powertrain and this was used by Porsche on their second generation Panamera.

The BMW coupe offers up three rows and the refreshed model of 2017 comes with a small price hike and it doesn’t offer any changes that are notable, other than the WiFi hotspot and the smartphone wireless charging.
