The 2016 Audi A8 is a can’t-miss choice for demanding drivers. First, Audi provides a choice between four powerful engines. Next, the A8’s interior showcases premium comfort for all occupants, including climate-controlled massage seats for both rows. There’s also cutting-edge technology, too.
A full-size flagship luxury sedan, the 2016 Audi A8 is available in four trims: A8 L 3.0T, A8 L TDI, A8 L 4.0 Sport or A8 L W12. It seats five. All-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission are standard. (The higher-performance 2016 Audi S8 is reviewed separately.)
The Audi A8 features many new customization options for 2016.
When it comes to exterior design, the A8 is understated, yet elegant. Key details include a powerful grille and long, sculpted lines on the hood and sides. Audi’s distinctive LED lighting also provides an upscale style cue. In the Sport model, aerodynamic side sills and front and rear bumpers are standard.
LED headlights with LED daytime running lights are standard, too. And the rest of the A8’s standard content is even more impressive. Leading the way are a power sunroof, a hands-free power trunk, 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels and heated, power-folding exterior mirrors. Depending on the model, there are different aluminum-alloy wheel, up to 21 inches in diameter.
The A8 combines high-end materials and sophisticated design elements inside the cabin. Audi also brings an unexpected approach to the infotainment screen. It’s hidden within the dashboard when not in use and deploys only when needed. For a further twist, many vehicle controls are located on the forward part of the gear-shift console, instead of on a traditional center stack. The A8’s trunk capacity is 14.2 cubic feet.
The elegance doesn’t end there. Even the entry trim has a full leather cabin with leather for not just the seats, but also the center console, door armrests and airbag cap. The standard front seats are heated and feature 18-way power adjustability. A leather-wrapped multi-function steering wheel and four-zone automatic climate control help fill out the car’s list of standard content. Optional are 22-way power-adjustable front seats with heat, ventilation and massage capability; climate-controlled rear seats with massage capability; a heated steering wheel and a cooling box for beverages or snacks.
The four trim levels each have their own powertrains. The standard engine is a turbocharged and supercharged 3.0-liter V6 that produces 333 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque. The 4.0T Sport model moves up to a 4.0-liter turbocharged V8 that makes 450 horsepower and 444 pound-feet of torque. In the W12, you’ll enjoy a naturally aspirated 12-cylinder engine that makes 500 horsepower and 463 pound-feet of torque. Finally, the six-cylinder diesel engine for the A8 delivers 240 horsepower, 428 pound-feet of torque and the lineup’s top EPA ratings at 24/36 mpg city/highway.
All models are equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.
A rearview camera and front and rear parking sensors are standard. The standard infotainment system pulls together a 7-inch display, mobile Wi-Fi, navigation, handwriting recognition, Bluetooth, HD Radio and a Bose audio system with 14 speakers.
Audi’s tech options include lane-keeping assistance, a blind-spot system, adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, forward-collision warning, a head-up display and night-vision assistance with thermal imaging. A rear-seat entertainment system and a Bang & Olufsen audio system headline available infotainment options.
