Audi’s flagship saloon has been given a makeover


The A8, Audi’s flagship saloon, has been given a makeover with upgraded technology and a new exterior design.

 

A new front grille has been introduced to give the car a wider appearance, while the side inlets have been made upright and moved close to the newly designed headlights.

 

At the rear, there’s a full-width light bar with digital OLED rear lights on either side. A new S line exterior package has been introduced too, which brings the styling closer to the sporty S8.

 

There are also five new matte colours added to the A8’s option list.

 

The cabin has the same 10.1-inch infotainment display and 8.6-inch digital cockpit as before, which are controlled through touch or voice controls.

 

In the rear of the car there are new screens measuring 10.1 inches apiece, which are attached to the back of the front seats. They can be connected to a passenger’s smartphone and can stream content from all major platforms.

 

There are four engine options, starting with a 3.0-litre turbocharged diesel V6. There’s also a choice of petrols in the form of a 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 and 4.0-litre V8. A plug-in hybrid is also on offer, badged TFSI e.

 

The sporty S8 sits separate from the rest of the line-up. Its twin-turbocharged V8 makes a healthy 563bhp and 800Nm of torque, catapulting the S8 from 0-60mph in 3.6 seconds.

 

Finally, the new A8 gets predictive active suspension, which uses a camera to scan the road ahead and prepare the suspension in advance, making for a more comfortable ride.
