Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Audi A8 saloon?

It might be getting on a bit now but the Mercedes S-Class is still one of the best luxury cars of this size. Its interior feels more special than the Audi’s and it drives with a little more verve, though it can’t quite match the splendid isolation the A8 offers.

If you want a car that handles well, though, you should try the Jaguar XJ. It’s the sharpest of these large luxury limos, and it’s also the cheapest to buy – but there are compromises, and they come in the form of a cramped interior that feels more cheaply made than the best, and poor fuel economy.

Overview

There are few finer ways to waft than the Audi A8. As well as being remarkably comfortable, it’s smooth, suave and incredibly swish.

  • Super-smooth ride quality
  • Beautiful interior
  • Impressive space
  • Fuel economy behind rivals
  • S-Class has a more interesting interior
  • Not the most exciting to drive
