The Audi 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 in the Audi A8 is.

Black Edition trim is based on S line, but as its name suggests, it brings lots of black exterior detailing (including for the door mirrors) and piano black interior trim. You also get a bespoke alloy wheel design.

If diesel doesn’t suit and you don’t have access to home charging, the 55 TFSI has a buttery smooth power delivery, and when you want to get a shift on, revs more keenly and is ultimately faster than the 50 TDI diesel. It will be thirstier, though.
