    2017 Audi A8 OVERVIEW

    Audi's flagship sedan, the A8 continues to impress us with its museum-quality interior and array of powerful engines. You also get indulgent passenger room and standard all-wheel drive, which makes the A8 something of bargain among top-tier luxury sedans.

    What's New for 2017

    Models equipped with the gasoline V6 now come standard with 20-inch wheels and sporty S-line exterior trim.

    Choosing Your Audi A8

    Audi discontinued the regular-length A8 last year, so every example now rides on a 122.9-inch wheelbase for outstanding rear-seat comfort. While all Audi products boast highly refined interiors, none is as opulent or serene as the A8's. Once you settle behind the wheel, there's no doubt you're driving the flagship of a luxury brand.

    • The engine roster starts with a supercharged 3-liter V6 engine that produces 333 horsepower.
    • Next up is a 3-liter turbodiesel V6 (TDI) with 240 horsepower, but significantly more torque. It's the efficiency champ of the line, achieving 28 mpg in combined city and highway driving.
    • Also on tap is a turbocharged 4-liter V8 that lays down 435 horsepower.
    • The top choice is a 500-horsepower 6.3-liter V12, the only non-turbo engine in the line.

    All four engines are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.

    Trim levels correspond to engine choice:


    Gets the 3-liter V6 engine, an adaptive air suspension, 20-inch wheels, and a full complement of luxury and convenience features. All models come with an extended leather interior with wood trim, 14-way heated front seat with memory, a sunroof, power soft-close doors, power rear sunshades, navigation, front and rear parking sensors, front collision mitigation, and a 14-speaker Bose surround-sound system. Audi now offers a full credit on the available Premium package, Cold Weather package, and panoramic sunroof. Although these items are technically optional, you pay nothing for them. The packages include ventilated and massaging front seats, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, surround-view cameras, rear collision mitigation, blind spot monitoring, and a head-up display. Beyond all of that are several extra-cost packages. The Luxury package furnishes upgraded diamond-stitched seats and an Alcantara (suede-like) headliner. Power ventilated rear seats come in the Rear Seat Comfort package. For enhanced handling, there's a Dynamic package with a sport differential and variable-ratio steering. Finally, the Driver Assistance package gets you adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, automatic high beams, and a bundle of extra collision-mitigation features known as Pre-Sense Plus.


    Equipped like the 3.0T, except with the turbodiesel V6 engine and standard 19-inch wheels.


    Comes with the 4-liter V8 engine, plus the panoramic sunroof and Premium content as standard. The Cold Weather package remains available as a no-cost option. All other packages continue.


    Packs the 6.3-liter V12, along with additional chrome exterior trim and a full-length center console. Everything available on the other trims is either standard or available at no cost. Exclusive to the W12 is a standard rear video entertainment system with a six-disc changer. The available Executive package adds a power rear footrest and a refrigerated compartment.

    Individual options for all models include night vision, a 19-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system, and your choice of interior trim finishes.

    CarsDirect Tip

    All four of the A8's available engine are impressive in their own way. If you value efficiency over performance, the TDI is your ticket to happiness in a large luxury sedan. Otherwise, the powerful and well-mannered 4.0T feels about right for a car of this caliber.
