The 2019 Audi A8 is a big car, and every inch shows the automaker’s careful attention to detail, from the A8’s intricately designed headlights to its lavishly equipped cabin. Audi blends old-world luxury cues with modern technology, and the result is an ownership experience that keeps the A8 from feeling cold and impersonal.
A full-size luxury sedan, the 2019 Audi A8 seats five people. A single L trim level is available for 2019. The “L” signifies that this model rides on a long wheelbase, unlike the 2019 A8 sold internationally. The A8 sold in the U.S. also has a mild hybrid powertrain with a standard turbocharged V6, an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.
Beginning its fourth generation in 2019, the all-new A8 competes against flagship luxury sedans such as the BMW 7 Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
To give you an idea of the 2019 Audi A8’s dominating road presence, it’s actually longer than some full-size SUVs. The A8’s grille is big enough to come from an SUV as well. The subtle fender lines and contoured body, however, also create a lean, athletic appearance.
Standard equipment includes LED headlights, LED taillights, a panoramic sunroof, heated power-folding mirrors, soft-close doors, 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels and a hands-free trunk with power opening and closing functionality. Audi’s upgraded matrix LED headlights, organic light-emitting diode (OLED) taillights and 20-inch wheels are optional.
The 2019 A8’s glossy lower dashboard is set off by long swaths of upper wood trim that wrap around onto the door panels. So, you’re fully enveloped in luxury when you get behind the wheel. The steering wheel’s horizontal spokes then create distinctive negative spaces that turn it into a modern work of art. The rear-seat accommodations are impressively spacious, but the A8 does make sacrifices in terms of cargo space. It has a trunk capacity of 12.5 cubic feet, which is less than you get in many smaller cars.
Audi equips the A8 with standard features such as leather upholstery, heated 18-way power-adjustable front seats, a leather-wrapped center console, four-zone automatic climate control and a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel with a power-adjustable column. Also available are climate-controlled 22-way power-adjustable front seats, front-seat massage functions, a heated steering wheel, a scented air-quality system, heated rear seats and rear comfort packages for either two or three passengers. These are highlighted by climate-controlled power-adjustable outboard seats with built-in massage functionality. The two-passenger layout adds a heated foot massage for the right-hand seat, footrests for both rear seats and fold-out center-console tables.
The standard engine for the 2019 Audi A8 is turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 that’s good for 335 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. That unit is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and sends power to all four wheels. The A8 also carries a standard lithium-ion battery that delivers mild-hybrid assistance to its powertrain. This helps the A8 achieve fuel economy ratings of 19/27 mpg city/highway.
Surprisingly quick and nimble for its size, the A8 can dash from 0 to 60 mph in 5.6 seconds. It takes full advantage of Audi technology to enhance its performance, too. An adaptive air suspension and multimode drive system are standard, while four-wheel steering and a predictive suspension are options. The latter system scans the road ahead and automatically adjusts the A8’s suspension to prepare in advance for what comes next.
Audi’s Virtual Cockpit is standard for the 2019 A8, which means you get a 12.3-inch digital instrument panel to go with other standard technology, such as a 10.3-inch upper touchscreen, an 8.6-inch lower touchscreen, mobile Wi-Fi, Android Auto, Bluetooth, a navigation system and a 17-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system. Audi offers options such as a head-up display, a night-vision system, wireless charging, a rear-seat entertainment system and a 21-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system with 1,920 watts of power.
Standard safety features include automatic forward emergency braking, forward collision warning, a rearview camera and front and rear parking sensors. The A8 is further available with adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, automatic parking assistance, blind-spot monitoring, exit assistance when opening doors into upcoming vehicle or bicycle traffic, forward cross-traffic alert for left-turn situations, laser-based sensors, loose-wheel detection, rear cross-traffic alert, a top-down surround-view camera system, traffic jam assistance and a new Emergency Assist features. This automatically brings the A8 to a stop and calls first responders if the driver is unresponsive.

The most beautiful car with a classic look and the latest technology
"Everyone stops and looks at my new Audi wherever I go. It is a dream to drive. What could be better than driving an up to date luxury car with the latest in technology! Compared to my 2017 A-8L the 2019 is a dream come true. I enjoy driving our friends out to dinner and they love the rear seat with spacious leg room. It is truly a limo feel! The 2019 Audi 8-L is a standout and will make you standout as a very unique luxury car owner. " Read Less
