Expert Rating

Not Available
15 City / 24 Highway

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2017 Audi S8 OVERVIEW

The high-performance version of Audi's prestigious A8 sedan, the S8 offers the same first-class comfort and amenities, but with the thrill of a 605-horsepower turbocharged V8. The S8 remains one of the fastest full-size luxury cars available at any price.

What's New for 2017

Aside from additional interior trim choices, the S8 is unchanged.

Audi S8

Choosing Your Audi S8

The centerpiece of the S8 is a twin-turbo 4-liter V8 that lays down 605 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque. There's also a sport-tuned adaptive air suspension and 21-inch wheels with summer performance tires. An eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive complete the mechanical setup. The S8 wears some aggressive styling bits on the outside, but nothing to spoil its classically Audi looks. The S8 rides on Audi's "standard" full-size wheelbase, while the A8 comes only in extended-wheelbase form.

The S8 is available in single trim level known as Plus (the base model departed last year), which includes everything most buyers expect in this class. Inside, you get 22-way heated and ventilated front seats with massage function, and diamond-stitched leather upholstery throughout. The cabin features four-zone climate control, power rear sunshades, and a 14-speaker Bose surround-sound system. Also on hand are power soft-close doors, a web-based navigation system, blind-spot monitoring, and rear collision alert.

For an extra measure of performance, the Dynamic package adds a less restrictive speed limiter (190 mph), ceramic brakes at all corners, a sport exhaust system, and a carbon fiber rear spoiler. Other packages are shared with the A8 line and include Driver Assistance (adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, active front collision mitigation) and Cold Weather (heated rear seats and steering wheel).

Individual options are as swanky as you would expect in a car like this. You can get a 19-speaker Bang & Olufsen surround-sound system, infrared night vision, and a dual-screen rear entertainment system. Upgraded leathers and interior finishes are also available.

CarsDirect Tip

We consider the Driver Assistance and Cold Weather packages to be essential for a car in this league, and they don't add much to the price. The more exotic (and expensive) individual options are simply icing on the cake.
