With the top premium sport sedans, exciting performance and swank luxury exist side by side, and the 2017 Audi S8 makes this pairing seem like the most natural thing in the world. The Audi S8 boasts plush accommodations, sleek sheet metal and responsive handling that’s designed to keep enthusiasts happy.
The 2017 Audi S8 is a full-size luxury sedan that’s a high-performance variant of the Audi A8. It seats five. While the A8 is available only as an extended-wheelbase model, the S8 is sold solely with the regular wheelbase. The S8 comes standard with all-wheel drive, and it’s available in a single trim.
For 2017, Audi has phased out the S8’s base trim, leaving the Plus trim as the sole choice.
The 2017 Audi S8 boasts sheet metal that’s stately and commanding. Deep creases adorn the hood, and the squared-off front fascia features angular headlights and an imposing grille with horizontal bars. The S8’s profile is bisected by character lines that span its length, and the sedan travels on standard 21-inch wheels.
All S8 models come with a rear lip spoiler, LED headlights and taillights, LED foglights, rain-sensing windshield wipers, soft-close power doors, a power trunk lid and power-folding side mirrors with auto-dimming capability. An available Black Optic exterior package adds gloss-black window surround, darkened taillight lenses, a gloss-black grille, carbon front and rear blade fins, carbon side mirror housings and a gloss-black rear diffuser.
When it comes to its cabin, Audi’s S8 doesn’t skimp on luxury. The car’s interior has a high-grade look and feel from all angles, with solid build quality and premium materials. As you’d expect from a full-size sedan, both rows of seating provide ample amounts of room for passengers. In back, the trunk serves up 14.2 cubic feet of capacity.
All models come with leather upholstery, four-zone automatic climate control, heated and ventilated power-adjustable front seats with a massage function, a power-adjustable tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel and power-adjustable sunshades for the side and rear windows. Available features include heated rear seats and a heated steering wheel.
The S8 has handling capabilities that most people wouldn’t expect from a full-size sedan. An eight-speed automatic transmission shifts the gears, and all-wheel drive is standard. All models are motivated by a turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 good for 605 horsepower and 517 pound-feet of torque, with overboost ramping up torque levels to 553 pound-feet. The S8 has an EPA rating of 15/24 mpg city/highway.
The S8 delivers a truly premium array of technology features. All models come standard with keyless entry and ignition, a rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, a surround-view camera, a blind-spot monitor, collision mitigation, a head-up display, a 14-speaker Bose stereo, Bluetooth phone and streaming audio, a driver information center with a 7-inch color display, HD and satellite radio, a CD/DVD player, navigation, an 8-inch touch screen with handwriting recognition technology, a Wi-Fi hotspot, voice recognition and two SD card slots with 32 GB capacity. Available features include adaptive cruise control, active lane-keeping assist, a night vision camera, an upgraded forward-collision mitigation system, a 19-speaker Bang & Olufsen stereo and a rear-seat DVD entertainment system with dual 10-inch screens.
