2018 Audi A8 L REVIEW - Better than
Mercedes S Class ?
Avaldati 11. juuli 2017
The new A8 starts out in the German market with two extensively reengineered V6 turbo engines: a 3.0 TDI and a 3.0 TFSI. The diesel develops 210 kW
(286 hp), and the gasoline version 250 kW (340 hp). Two eight-cylinder versions – a 4.0 TDI with 320 kW (435 hp) and a 4.0 TFSI with 338 kW (460 hp) –
will follow slightly later. The exclusive top engine version is the W12 with a displacement of 6.0 liters. (These vehicles are not yet on sale. They
do not yet have type approval and are therefore not subject to Directive 1999/94/EC.)
The classiest seat in the new Audi flagship model is in the rear right – the optional relaxation seat in the A8 L that comes with four different
adjustment options and a footrest. In this seat, the passenger can warm and massage the soles of their feet on a unit with multiple settings
incorporated into the back of the front-passenger seat. The new comfort head restraints complete the experience. The rear passengers can also control
an array of functions such as ambient lighting, the new HD Matrix reading lights and seat massage, plus make private phone calls, via a separate
operating unit. The rear seat remote, with its OLED display as large as a smartphone, is a removable unit housed in the center armrest.
