Audi's luxury sedan for 2016 carries over with only minor updates. The A8 Sport offers the 4.0-liter turbocharged engine in a more athletic package with revised front and rear bumpers, front sport air intakes and a rear diffuser. With the exception of the S8, all A8s now ride on the long-wheelbase chassis.
Updates for the 2015 Audi A8 include new front and rear design, an available head-up display with night-vision warning information, and a safety system to keep you from drifting lanes. The 4.0-liter V8 engine increases horsepower from 420 to 435.
About Audi S8
In the world of big executive sedans, the 2016 Audi A8 holds particular appeal. Not as boldly styled as the BMW 7 Series or Mercedes-Benz S-Class, the A8 flies just under the radar. The A8 distances itself from the competition by offering standard all-wheel drive (AWD) and by placing a heavy emphasis on the car's interior design. For those who prefer the back seat to the driver's seat, the A8 W12 provides limousine-like comfort and a 12-cylinder engine, creating a car that will never be mistaken for the standard airport livery car. Among the A8's other engine options is a fuel-efficient turbodiesel serving up class-leading fuel economy up to 36 mpg. With its shorter wheelbase, the performance-oriented S8 provides a measurable improvement in handling and acceleration.
