What To Expect

The 2025 Audi A8 will likely continue as the brand's full-size sedan with minor updates only. The current A8 debuted in 2019 and received a mid-cycle refresh in 2022. According to reports, an all-electric A8 e-tron will join the lineup in 2027. The high-performance S8 variant is covered in a separate entry.

The A8 remains the largest and most luxurious sedan in the Audi lineup. The five-passenger interior comes loaded with amenities, like extended premium leather upholstery, heated and ventilated 22-way front seats, a panoramic sunroof, power rear sunshades, and a 17-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system. The A8 comes in a single trim level that can be augmented with a handful of high-end luxury packages.

We expect the A8 to retain its current powertrain. The turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 makes 335 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque and features mild hybrid assist. All-wheel drive and an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission are standard. The A8 rides on a fully adaptive suspension system. For buyers with a thirst for power, the costlier S8 packs a 563-hp V8 turbo.

According to EPA estimates, the A8 delivers 19 miles per gallon city, 28 mpg highway, and 22 combined.

Night vision is available as well.
