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

Black edition mainly adds styling touches on top of S Line trim

For those worried about the future implications of buying a diesel, the petrol makes a wholly convincing alternative. True, the 55 TFSI doesn't have quite the low-rev grunt of the diesel, but it's still well-suited to the A8. Its power delivery is buttery smooth and you barely hear any noise from it.
