Audi A8 Interior

The 2018 Audi A8 interior has many fine details that give it its distinct look. Right away, you'll notice the horizontal Singleframe® grille, plus the LED lights with daytime running lights that form a precise outline around the edge of the headlight.

Around the back, you'll see the twin trapezoidal exhaust outlets and LED taillights with rear fog lights. And from the side, there are the 20-inch 10-spoke-star design wheels and LED indicator lights that are integrated in the side mirrors.

The refined look of the Audi A8 continues inside the vehicle. It has a wraparound dashboard

2018 Audi A8 Specs

When it comes to power and handling, the Audi A8 doesn't mess around. It has two engine options that offer the kind of power you'd want in a vehicle...

  • 3.0 TFSI® V6: 333 horsepower and 325 lb-ft of torque
  • 4.0 TFSI® V8: 450 horsepower and 444 lb-ft of torque

The 3.0 engine can also go from 0-60 MPH in 5.5 seconds, while the 4.0 engine can go from 0-60 MPH in 4.4 seconds. And both can reach a top track speed of 130 MPH.

The 2018 Audi A8 also comes standard with a quattro® all-wheel drive system. It has a variable torque split that intuitively sends power to where it's needed, which helps enhance performance and traction, depending on road conditions.

Plus, the A8 has Audi drive select, which has four modes-Dynamics, Comfort, Auto, and Individual-that adjust the vehicle's steering, transmission shifts, and throttle response. This allows you to cater every drive to your taste and better handle the road you're traveling on.

Cutting-Edge Technologies

Furthermore, the A8 has the available head-up display, which uses a system of aspherical mirrors to show important driver-related information on the windshield. You can also customize what will be displayed, like speed and navigation symbols. 

There are other technology features in the A8 to help keep you safe. Some of these driver-assisting technologies are...

  • Audi pre sense® plus: If an emergency situation is detected, this feature can close the windows, tighten seatbelts, and adjust seats to prepare for a possible impact.
  • Audi active lane assist: Uses a front-mounted camera to detect markings on the road. If you approach the end of your lane without signaling, it'll provide gentle steering-wheel vibrations to alert you to take action and get back into your designated lane.
  • Audi side assist with Audi pre sense® rear: Uses radar sensors and optical warnings to help alert you when a vehicle is in your blind spot.
