Review

The A8’s blend of performance, comfort and serenity are wedded to a beautifully built, practical and well-equipped interior. In fact, by a whisker, it beats the Mercedes S Class, which shows just how good to drive and be driven the Audi A8 is

A8

The standard A8 comes loaded with kit. Climate control, 18in alloy wheels, heated and electric leather seats, sat-nav, Bluetooth and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring are only the beginning — the full list is much, much longer. Bearing in mind how people use these cars, we'd opt for the long-wheelbase version, which as well as extra rear space adds heated rear seats, a 5.7in tablet-style remote control, four-zone climate control, rear USB ports and electric rear sunblinds.

This 3.0-litre V6 diesel is smooth and quiet, if not quite as refined as the 400d engine in the rival Mercedes S Class. It isn't as powerful as that engine, either, although performance is more than adequate and there's a healthy swell of acceleration available from low revs.
