A Q7 with only half a trunk?
Will FCA try to make them change the six vertical bars in the grille for looking too much like a Jeep?
I'm not sure if that new Audi steering wheel design works.
Omg that grille is both massive and hideous. I'm not sure what I think of it. Maybe I'll need to see one in the flesh.
i love the dashboard. they should take it out and put it in a car that isn't a knockoff X6.
It looks small and doesn't get along with the A8 in styling, not elegant like it should be, the limo SUV.
It's quite different. The X6 has a sloping roof with a decline that starts much sooner, and steeper. In the Q8, the roof stays flatter longer. And while the C-pillar is steep like the X6, the glass is actually much more deeply curved. giving more interior space.
Even ignoring all of that, the Q8 is a larger vehicle, so even if it had the same roof, it starts out leading off the base. The same roof on each would still hold more/larger items in the Q8 even assuming everything else was the same.
I took the side-on Q8 image, outlined it, and overlayed it over an X6. The Q8 is 6" longer than the X6, so admittedly that is an estimate here. I put their wheels on the ground...but again the X6's view was slightly lower, so I lowered the Q8's height a couple of clicks to try to even that out.
It's the age of the ultra-SUVs. Bentley, Rolls, Audi & BMW are now pushing into that market, I assume Merc will follow soon.....

True, Bentley and Rolls are in a league of their own, then again, them doing SUVs shows how the market shifts....
The GLS was a horrible horrible car (suprised that still exists), it didn't sell at all in Europe due to the atrocious build quality, which is why I left it out
I mean, even VW is kind of hopping on the bandwagon with their Atlas SUV thing:

Working in the G-wagen group must be fun. It seems like they have no limits to what they're allowed to do.
