Large executive sedans, such as the 2016 Audi S8, offer a spacious cabin and high-tech features that few can match. Thanks to a high-performance engine, the S8 is capable of outrunning some sports cars. When not driving spiritedly, the S8 is a well-rounded cruiser.
The 2016 Audi S8 is the performance-oriented version of the A8. It seats five. The S8 is offered in one, fully loaded Plus trim. A twin-turbocharged V8 engine, automatic transmission and all-wheel drive are standard.
For 2016, Audi dropped the regular S8 from the lineup, leaving only the S8 Plus trim. The model gets an updated air suspension system and new steering calibration to make the S8 more of a performance vehicle. A rear spoiler is standard.
As Audi’s flagship sedan, the S8 features clean, elegant lines with some athletic touches. The lengthy wheelbase gives the S8 its elongated look, while squared-off design elements give the luxury vehicle a muscular stance. Wide fender flares, a quad-exhaust outlet system and 21-inch wheels are among the sporty touches.
Full LED lights, a sunroof, auto-dimming mirrors, rain-sensing windshield wipers, soft-close doors and a power trunk lid are standard. Available equipment includes a sport exhaust system, ceramic brake discs and carbon fiber trim.
Slide yourself into the S8’s seats, and you might think you’re inside a private plane. The sedan’s cabin is one of the finest in the segment, featuring high-end materials and a gorgeous design. Comfort and interior space are exceptional, especially in the back.
Standard features include 22-way multi-contour front seats, four-zone climate control, a power tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, power sunshades, leather upholstery with diamond-pattern stitching and heated and ventilated front seats with a massage function. A heated steering wheel and heated rear seats are available.
With the ability to get to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds, performance for the S8, considering its stature, is staggering. The sedan features a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine that makes a whopping 605 horsepower and 517 pound-feet of torque. An eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive are standard.
Achieving an EPA-estimated 15/25 mpg city/highway, the S8 isn’t exactly a fuel-efficient option.
The 2016 S8 comes with an impressive list of technology features. Standard equipment includes a top-view parking camera system; keyless entry; Audi Drive Select, which allows you to alter functions such as throttle sensitivity, suspension and steering weight; a 7-inch screen between the gauges that make up the instrument cluster; a head-up display; an 8-inch central screen; handwriting recognition technology; Bluetooth; a 14-speaker Bose surround-sound audio system; satellite radio; HD Radio and a Wi-Fi hotspot.
