The interior layout, fit and finish
With a few minor exceptions, the Audi S8 is just like any other A8 inside. That means the interior is immaculately finished, with luxurious materials, including lashings of soft leather, and a standard of assembly that trumps even the Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG. True, the A8’s interior looks a little conservative compared with the S63’s and Porsche Panamera’s, but that’s a matter of personal preference.
The driving position is excellent, with a huge range of adjustment for the supportive, 22-way electrically operated seat. Four-way powered adjustable lumbar support is standard, and even the steering wheel moves in and out, and up and down, electrically.
