The Audi A8 is an executive saloon that offers comfort and refinement as well as having lots of equipment and great engines. It's also a luxurious offering.
The engines for the Audi A8 help deliver excellent levels of performance. The range begins with the 3.0 litre TDI diesel which produces 258bhp and has economy of 50 mpg and emissions of 149g/km.

The interior is well made and has a premium look and feel and there's lots of space for passengers. The range is also fitted with an eight speed automatic gearbox as standard and it offers efficient and quick gear shifting – it is also coupled to the car's satnav and will automatically select the most appropriate gear setting for the road.
Standard equipment includes adaptive air suspension, 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, DAB radio, cruise control and power adjustable front seats. Other models come with reversing camera and parking sensors, tinted rear windows, a power operated boot lid and ventilated seats.
