Audi A8 – the fourth generation. Heading into a new era

Audi A8

Audi has fundamentally reengineered the A8 in its fourth generation. With its stylistically defining design, top-rate suspension solutions, touchscreen operating concept and superlative comfort, the luxury sedan demonstrates Vorsprung durch Technik right across the board. One of the top innovations is the Audi AI traffic jam pilot, which no other competitor offers.

This vehicle is not yet on sale. It does not yet have type approval and is therefore not subject to Directive 1999/94/EC.

The new Audi A8 presents the future of the luxury class. In its fourth generation, the brand’s flagship model again provides the benchmark for Vorsprung durch Technik – with a new design language, an innovative touchscreen operating concept and a systematically electrified drive.
Shape. Shift. Sense. Space. These four terms summarize the new Audi A8 with all its characteristics.
Sports appeal, lightweight construction and quattro – the design of the new A8 perfectly conveys Audi’s fundamental values. It embodies sporting elegance, sophistication and progressive status. The new flagship model takes the brand into a new design era.
At its market introduction in Europe, the new A8 will start out with two extensively reengineered V6 turbo engines, a 3.0 TDI with 210 kW (286 hp) and a 3.0 TFSI with 250 kW (340 hp). The two V8 versions will follow.
Audi takes a decisive step towards autonomous driving with the new A8. The basic condition that this car satisfies is its comprehensive, permanent sensing of its surroundings. The flagship accomplishes this with a new, complete set of sensors.
5,172 millimeters (203.6 in) long, 1,945 millimeters (76.6 in) wide and 1,473 millimeters (58.0 in) high – these are the dimensions of the new A8. It is 37 mm (1.5 in) longer and 13 mm (0.5 in) higher than its predecessor model, but the width is marginally lower.
