KBB Editors' Overview

By Editors - Updated Date: 4/11/2013

Despite the fact that BMW and Mercedes-Benz have enjoyed a considerable head start in the field of large luxury sedans, the Audi A8 has proven it's a fast learner. When it comes to feature content, performance and prestige, the A8 holds its own against long-refined rivals like the BMW 7 Series, Mercedes-Benz S-Class and Lexus LS. The 2014 Audi A8 receives a number of enhancements to keep pace with its posh competition, including a new diesel-powered TDI model that returns best-in-class fuel economy. Buyers may also choose between a standard wheelbase and long-wheelbase "L" versions, with the latter boasting an additional five inches of legroom. As for blending the highest levels of luxury and performance, you'd be hard pressed to do better than the 520-horsepower Audi S8.

You'll Like This Car If...

The 2014 Audi A8 impresses with substance and style rather than glitz and glamour, making it the ideal pick for those who seek a sophisticated flagship sedan without the pretentious image.

You May Not Like This Car If...

While the A8 is certainly no slouch around corners, drivers looking for the most visceral driving experience in the category should explore the physics-defying BMW 7-Series. And if your idea of a flagship luxury sedan is dictated by unrestrained opulence, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class (available late 2013) might be the better option.

What's New for 2014

The 2014 A8 L is the latest addition to the ever expanding A8 lineup. Achieving an impressive EPA-estimated 24/36 city/highway rating, the A8 L TDI ushers in a new era of fuel efficiency to the full-size luxury segment. There are also several new option packages across the line.

Driving It Driving Impressions

The Audi A8 offers a fine balance between a luxury cruiser and sports sedan. This dual personality is owed in large part to the adaptive air suspension, which delivers the best of both worlds in terms of ride quality. With the push of a button, drivers can choose from a sofa-soft "Comfort" mode, performance-tuned "Dynamic" setting, or an "Automatic" mode that, as you may have guessed, automatically alters suspension damping to suit current driving conditions. The quattro all-wheel-drive (AWD) system must be lauded for giving the 2014 A8 a level of roadholding feel unmatched by its competition. Now available in a variety of Audi models, the new 3.0-liter turbodiesel signals a bright future for oil-burners, delivering a mountain of instant torque without the familiar agricultural noises at low engine speeds and idle.

Favorite Features

The A8 L TDI's turbodiesel powerplant packs hybrid-like fuel economy in a powerful yet user-friendly package. As a bonus, diesel engines have a longer life expectancy than traditional gasoline engines.

Audi's optional MMI Touch could easily be considered one of the best human-machine interfaces on the market. To select a navigation destination or summon an alphabetical category in a song collection, simply draw the characters with your finger on the touch pad.
