After getting an exclusive peak at the Q8Autoexpress didn't waste any time sharing what they've learned about the car, both aesthetically as well as technically. To start off, it seems that even though it will have the same wheelbase as the Q7, the Q8 will feature a shorter rear overhang, sitting only five people. Also, the car will sit closer to the road by 70 mm (2.7 in), which will undoubtedly help separate it from its previously mentioned sibling.

By the way, Audi is planning on differentiating future Q models from future A models by giving the former octagonal grilles and the latter hexagonal grilles - with the Q8 set to receive the most imposing octagonal grille of the lot, featuring bold vertical strakes.

Those of you expecting the Q8 to be a run-of-the-mill Coupe-like SUV like the one rendered here by X-Tomi, might be a tiny bit disappointed by Audi design boss Marc Lichte's statement regarding how he didn't necessarily want to take the Q8 in that particular direction aesthetically.
