You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

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

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

: 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.

What's New

The 2023 Audi A8 luxury sedan gains an available remote automated parking system. The A8's available matrix-design LED headlights return as part of the Comfort Plus Package. The current A8 debuted in 2019 and received a styling refresh last year.

Choosing Your Audi A8

The 2023 A8 comes in a single trim level priced from $87,595 including destination. The high-performance S8 variant starts at $118,595.

Engine Choices

Every A8 receives a turbocharged V6 engine, while the S8 packs a V8 turbo. All-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission are standard on both models.

Audi used to build a plug-in hybrid version called the A8 e that was eligible for a tax credit. However, that model was discontinued after the 2021 model year.

Engine TypeHorsepowerTorqueFuel Economy (Combined)
3.0L V6 Turbo335 hp 369 lb-ft22 mpg
4.0L V8 Turbo563 hp590 lb-ft17 mpg

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The A8 is a full-size luxury sedan with abundant room for five. The layout is biased toward rear seat comfort, so trunk space is limited to 12.5 cubic feet, about the same as a midsize sedan. Folding rear seats aren't offered in the A8.

Safety Features

Standard driver assistance technology includes surround-view cameras, lane departure warning, automatic high beams, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and automatic emergency braking.

More advanced features are available in the $3,650 Executive Package, which includes adaptive cruise control with steering assist, rear automatic emergency braking, front cross-traffic alert, road sign recognition, and an automatic parking system with remote activation.

A head-up display is part of the $4,100 Comfort Plus Package. Night vision is a $2,300 standalone option on the A8.


The 2023 A8 offers a robust infotainment system with a 10.1-inch touchscreen, navigation, wireless phone integration and charging, a phone signal booster, and four USB ports. Every model gets a 17-speaker Bang & Olufsen 3D sound system.

2023 Audi A8 — MSRP From $87,595

As expected in this class, the A8 pours on the fine trim and amenities. Standard fare includes a premium extended leather interior with wood trim, heated and ventilated 22-way power front seats with memory, four-zone automatic climate control, rear power sunshades, a panoramic sunroof, and full LED exterior lighting with animated taillights. The A8 rides on 19-inch wheels and a fully adaptive suspension system.

In addition to its aforementioned safety features, the Executive Package adds a heated steering wheel, multicolor ambient interior lighting, aluminum dash buttons, and 20-inch wheels. The $4,100 Comfort Plus Package goes further with acoustic side glass, front massaging seats, heated front armrests, heated rear seats, matrix-design headlights, and the head-up display.

For buyers who want it all, the $5,400 Luxury Package tacks on leather door pulls and upper dash trim, power rear outboard seats with ventilation and massage, heated rear armrests, rear LED matrix reading lights, and all-wheel steering.

2023 Audi S8 — MSRP From $118,595

The S8 packs the turbocharged V8, plus an adaptive sport suspension, quad exhaust outlets, and standard 20-inch wheels. Other upgrades include carbon fiber interior trim, diamond-stitched leather upholstery, a power trunk lid, and standard all-wheeling steering.

The Executive and Comfort Plus packages remain available, and buyers can order the Luxury Package with individual rear seats and a fixed center console.

CarsDirect Tip

The 2023 Audi A8 is the brand's flagship sedan and is priced accordingly. The regular A8 is luxuriously quick, though not a standout performer like the S8. For those who want to enjoy everything Audi has to offer in terms of luxury and performance, only the S8 will do.
