4,986 millimeters (16.4 ft) long, 1,995 millimeters (6.5 ft) wide and 1,705 (5.6 ft) millimeters high – these dimensions describe the new Audi Q8, which exudes sportiness and prestige like no other SUV from the brand with the four rings. With its coupé-style roof line and the frameless doors, it is 38 millimeters (1.5 in) lower than its Q7 sister model. It is 66 millimeters (2.6 in) shorter, but has become 27 millimeters (1.1 in) wider. The distinctive front end, the short rear overhang, the high ground clearance of up to 254 millimeters (10.0 in) with the adaptive air suspension and the hefty 22-inch wheels with a diameter of 795 millimeters (31.3 in) paint a picture of powerful dynamics.
With a wheelbase of 2,995 millimeters (9.8 ft), the Audi Q8 offers ample space for five people. It is more spacious than the competition with respect to interior length, front and rear elbow and headroom, and rear legroom. The standard three-seat system in the rear can be slid longitudinally by ten centimeters (3.9 in). Large storage compartments and pockets, particularly in the doors, prepare the Audi Q8 for long trips. All together they have a capacity of more than 14 liters (0.5 cu ft).
The luggage compartment of the SUV coupe holds 605 liters (21.4 cu ft) as standard, which increases to 1,755 liters (62.0 cu ft) with the rear backrests folded down. Two golf bags can easily fit in crosswise. A power rear hatch is standard; foot-activated gesture control is available as an option. The electric luggage compartment cover is another convenience option. Guided on rails, it automatically retracts when the tailgate is opened and is extended again upon closing.
