Audi has designed a decidedly handsome exterior for the Q8, which draws attention no matter where you go. This sleek SUV comes packed with a ton of exterior features from the base model upward. The Premium derivative features new 21-inch five-segment-spoke design wheels (up from last year's 20-inch items), full LED headlights with high-beam assist, LED tail lights, and a power rear liftgate. Premium Plus models look the same on the outside. The Prestige includes LED taillights with animation. The Black Optic package on the Premium Plus adds 21-inch W-spoke wheels, along with unique front and rear bumper inserts, black roof rails, and black trim around the side windows. The S line Style package (not available on the base trim) includes S line fender badges, illuminated door sill inlays, 21-inch five-W-spoke alloy wheels, and an S line exterior body kit. Via the S line Plus package, red brake callipers are added, housed in 22-inch wheels; this package automatically includes the Black Optic package too.
The Audi Q8 SUV is classified as a mid-size luxury crossover SUV coupé, and its dimensions are similar in size to that of the Porsche Cayenne Coupe. The Audi Q8 quattro rides on a 117.9-inch wheelbase and is 196.6 inches long, making it over two inches longer than the Porsche. Height comes in at 67.2 inches and width is 86.2 inches with the mirrors included and 78.5 without them. The track in the front is 66.1 inches, and 66.8 inches in the back. All trim levels weigh in at 5,004 pounds and offer a ground clearance, when loaded, of 5.75 inches.

Color options play a massive role in the overall styling of a car, and with the Q8 being such a beauty, it would make sense that Audi has bestowed this SUV with a great number of exciting paint colors that will suit every taste. The 2022 Q8 is offered with only one complimentary color, namely Carrara White; last year's no-charge Night Black is no longer available. For metallic colors, you'll have to cough up an extra $595. The metallic range includes Dragon Orange, Florett Silver, Galaxy Blue, Glacier White, Samurai Gray, Vicuna Beige, and Mythos Black, which replaces last year's Orca Black. On Premium Plus variants, the stunning Navarra Blue Metallic becomes available when you go for the S Line package, while Daytona Gray Pearl is added to the palette as well and costs $595. Navarra Blue is the color to go for here.
