The new Audi A8 is every inch a next-generation vehicle; fuel economy has been improved by ten percent on previous models, and the hybrid version offers even greater efficiency. That’s not to say the A8 is lacking in speed however – it’s one of the quickest vehicles you’ll ever have the pleasure of driving.
From the 18-inch V-design alloy wheels to the firm but gentle roofline, the new Audi A8 achieves a look that is confident, but welcoming rather than arrogant. Sophisticated style has always been a hallmark of the Audi brand, and the impressive A8 is certainly a looker, which is even more impressive given the large amount of technology secured inside the vehicle – even with a hybrid drivetrain, the car still looks sleek and agile.
The spacious interior is equally elegant, with Valcona leather seats being a particular highlight. The car’s Adaptive Air Suspension, with three different modes, ensures your passengers can sit back and relax, even when the road gets bumpy. And when the conversation winds down you can play your favourite tunes from the Audi Music Interface, which can be supplemented by a BOSE surround sound audio system.
State-of-the-art technology means the new Audi A8 can be driven as a sporty, fast-paced vehicle, or in an impressively economic way. Choosing the hybrid engine allows you to travel at up to 62mph for short distances relying on nothing but electricity, while CO2 emissions are limited to 144g/km, remarkably low for a car of the A8’s class. By contrast of course, engines that focus on power are also available, like the 4.0-litre TFSI Quattro, which unleashes more than 500bhp output.
Little things can make a big difference when it comes to safety, and the new Audi A8 is packed with subtle additions to keep you as secure as possible. High-beam assist features on all headlights, and a cruise control system helps to regulate your speed when you drive long distances. And the Audi Space Frame body structure ensures that, in the event of a collision, the car has been designed to minimise the danger to you and your passengers.
