For a long time, the 2019 BMW X6 was the only one of its kind--and while it's lonely at the top, it found plenty of attention from South Carolina drivers who'd been begging for a crossover that truly stood out.

Over the years, the industry has presented a few challengers--other high-riding coupe crosses that tried to mimic the clean-and-classic look of the unique and charismatic BMW X6.

The Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe is a common contender. But, there's a new challenger stepping forward, and it stands a real chance of being a genuine rival to the established, strong 2019 BMW X6.

It's the all-new 2019 Q8 from Audi, and while Audi has taken bells and whistles to the extreme, it's worth a look to see how this new Q8 matches up to the iconic BMW X6.
