The refinement of the Audi A8 is evident from the first glance. This isn’t a car that needs novelty or never-before-seen components for it to stand out. No, the new A8 simply takes everything you’d expect from an executive saloon and makes it even better. The long, muscular frame, flared wheel arches and the gentle curve of the roofline ensure that the A8 makes its mark on the road. And, with 18-inch alloy wheels available, a sophisticated front grille with chrome accents, and distinctive LED headlights, the model epitomises class.
This sense of sophistication extends into the cabin of the vehicle. Featuring Audi’s innovative Virtual Cockpit, sumptuous soft leather upholstery, and infotainment measures that are among the finest in the automotive industry, the A8 delivers incomparable class throughout your journey. Of course, that’s not at the expense of space; generous head and legroom is enhanced by the light and airy nature of the model. There’s also a practical Head-Up Display providing key information in your eyeline, and twin colour touchscreens for complete control.
The engine options powering the new A8 have been developed and refined to offer the utmost in smooth and responsive motoring. The 50 TDi quattro and 55 TFSI quattro work with an eight-speed transmission for an equal delivery of power and seamless gear changes. The result is the production of up to 340ps, while fuel economy of up to 40.9mpg is more than impressive for a vehicle of the A8’s size.
Technology within the new Audi A8 is nothing if not extensive. From the twin colour touchscreens providing access to critical functions and vehicle data, through to wireless smartphone charging enabling you to stay connected at all times, this executive vehicle provides a driving experience that is enhanced by the very best in automotive technology.
Safety is another area where technology takes centre stage. This being an Audi, you can rest assured there’s plenty of industry-leading driver assistance tools to keep you protected. For example, Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go, lane departure warning including emergency assist, and a rear-view camera can all act to help avoid any on-road incidents, while passive measures mitigate the severity of any such occurrences.
