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

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

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

Price:   -  From $130,900


What's New

The 2021 Audi S8 lives at the pinnacle of the luxury car market, where all-out performance is just as coveted as comfort and amenities. Following last year's total redesign, the S8 receives a handful of detail changes. Standard fare now includes 21-inch wheels, summer performance tires, and heated front armrests. The available Black Optic Package carries a fresh wheel design.

Choosing Your Audi S8

The S8 comes in a single trim level of the same name, priced at $131,895 including destination.

Engine Choices

The S8 packs a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that conjures up 563 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque. Make no mistake, these are stunning numbers for a luxury sedan. An eight-speed automatic transmission does the shifting.

To complement its raw power, the S8 comes standard with all-wheel drive, a sport-tuned adaptive suspension, summer performance tires, and a torque-vectoring rear differential. The S8 hustles from 0-60 mph in a scant 3.8 seconds.

The EPA rates the S8's efficiency at 13 miles per gallon city, 22 mpg highway, and 16 combined.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The S8 is every bit a full-size luxury sedan with abundant room for five, especially in the back. All of that passenger space limits the trunk to 12.5 cubic feet, about the same as a compact.

Safety Features

Audi isn't quite so generous with safety technology on the S8. Standard features include lane departure warning, a surround-view camera system, front and rear parking sensors, forward collision warning, and automatic emergency braking.

To go beyond that, buyers have to spring for the $5,400 Executive Package, which adds adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, front cross-traffic alert, and traffic sign recognition — as well as several luxury features. There's also an optional night vision assistant ($2,300) that includes warnings for pedestrians and large animals.


The S8 spares no gadget in the infotainment department. Every models gets a 10.1-inch upper touchscreen and an 8.6-inch lower one, navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, HD and satellite radio, two front USB ports, wireless device charging, a phone signal booster, and 17-speaker Bang and Olufsen surround-sound audio system.

Models equipped with the available Executive Package also have a rear USB audio interface. A 23-speaker Bang and Olufsen audio system is available for $5,900.

The S8 features a quilted Nappa leather interior with carbon fiber trim, four-zone automatic climate control, a sueded headliner, acoustic side glass, heated and ventilated front seats with 22-way power adjustments, power soft-close doors, a heated steering wheel, and heated front armrests. The outside gets full LED lighting, quad exhaust outlets, and 21-inch wheels. A panoramic sunroof is also standard.

In addition to its aforementioned features, the Executive Package adds leather trim on the upper dashboard and door panels, rear LED reading lights, heated rear seats, laser-enhanced headlights, animated taillights, and a rear touchscreen with climate and media controls.

The Rear Seat Comfort Package ($5,350) provides individual rear seats with power lumbar controls, ventilation, massage, memory, and footrests. A leather-covered rear center console holds fold-out tables, a power outlet, and a heated armrest. The side armrests are heated as well.

For a more aggressive look outside, the $1,750 Black Optic Package adds gloss black exterior trim and black-accented Y-spoke wheels.

CarsDirect Tip

Every bit of the mighty performance potential of the 2021 Audi S8 comes standard. The main decision facing buyers is how much interior luxury – and there's a ton of it available – is enough.
