Audi has been teasing the upcoming Audi Q8 SUV for some time now, causing certain folks in the automotive industry to draw some comparisons between it and the Lamborghini Urus, which is also a coupe-based SUV. This isn't a huge surprise, considering the fact that the Audi Q8 and the Lamborghini Urus share a platform, making them almost-cousins!

Fun Fact: This is the same platform that underpins the critically acclaimed Audi Q7 SUV, too!


The Upcoming 2019 Audi Q8—What We Know So Far

  • The 2019 Audi Q8 is expected to pack a high-performance, high-efficiency plug-in hybrid powertrain. A powerful symphony of gasoline engines and an electric motor unite to serve up an anticipated-469 net horsepower and 516.3 pound-feet of torque.
  • While the Audi Q8 will encounter competition from other luxury-coupe-like SUVs like the BMW X6 or the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe, but it's worth noting that the Audi Q8's sloping roofline isn't quite so severe, which means it won't encroach on headspace or cargo room quite like the aforementioned competition.
  • Audi has been tight-lipped about the other features and specs we can expect, but considering the fact that an Audi flagship vehicle, like the Audi A8, is often a showcase for Audi's cutting-edge tech, we're expecting the cockpit of the upcoming 2019 Audi Q8 to be flush with awesome tech and driver-assist features.

If you're looking for an outstanding new SUV that will bring power, efficiency, and pure-luxe appointments, it's worth holding out for the upcoming release of the 2019 Audi Q8 SUV. While it's currently a test of patience, that patience will be well-rewarded for those Warrington, PA drivers who are able to hold on for the official release—it's not long off, now!
