Check Out Audi’s New Q8 In Galaxy Blue Metallic

Audi‘s first dab into the SUV Coupe segment has so far impressed reviewers upon first contact. So if you decide to buy one, how should you spec it?

We could argue in favor of a Galaxy Blue Metallic exterior, because as with the Q8 (a dynamic and aggressive utility vehicle), there’s more to this shade of blue than meets the eye.

What’s interesting about this color is that it changes a lot based on light. If your Audi is parked somewhere in the shade, the Galaxy Blue Metallic paint will look considerably darker, whereas in the light it’s almost Turquoise.

Another positive is that this isn’t an Audi Exclusive colorway, which means you won’t have to spend a great deal of money in order to see it smeared all over your new car.

What we don’t know is how much it will cost on the Q8, but if it’s the same as on the Q7, then you’re looking at an extra $575 in the U.S., and £675 in the UK. You’re also getting a more “interesting” shade of blue that you would with say Navara Blue Metallic, also Audi’s own.

As for this particular car, on display at the Audi Forum in Neckarsulm, aside from the color, it’s identical to the one Audi unveiled last month when official images of the Q8 were shared around the world.

    visually this car looks really small… the front grille makes it look like a cheap compact SUV. :-/

      It’s large. Hard to tell in pictures just like the Q7. Looks small and presents itself as small in photographs, but when you see a 16 1/2 foot suv that’s over 80 inches wide in person, you’ll forget the size it looks in the pictures.

      • Miknik

        Itz is indeed huge, I have seen one in traffic (press car in that bronze/orange), whilst it does look Q5 sized in pics, it is massive in flesh.

  • chippers

    Nice color but I doubt we’ll see many. They’ll mostly be various shades of white, silver, gray, and black.

  • Paul

    It’s a beauty that’s for sure.

  • Trocadero

    AUDI have managed it, made the Bentley Bentayga look tasteful. The staircase in picture two looks more interesting

    • Matthew Boyd

      I don’t agree with you, but that was funny as hell lol!

  • Rocket

    You know how sometimes you see a new car, and you think Meh? But then you see it more and more, and it goes from dislike, to neutral, to like, to adore? Well, for me this absolutely is NOT one of those times. It looks as juvenile today as the first time I saw it. Audi designers are lost.

    This lowkey looks better than Lamborghini Urus.

  • An Existing Person

    These images just changed my whole perspective on the design. It looks stunning in that color that draws out the details.

    My favorite SUV-Coupé at the moment. Let’s see what Mercedes and BMW come up with.


    I don’t like it. Looks like a wagon.

  • Matthew Boyd

    Yeah… that works for me.

  • Bob

    I, for one, am glad that SUV coupe doesn’t have to mean anything shaped, even vaguely, like an X6.
