2013 Audi A8 Overview

The 2013 Audi A8 is a fitting flagship in the luxurious world of Audi: it’s big, heavy, fast, and packed with technology.

There are really only a few things that come to mind when we look at the A8. First, it’s huge, like an enlarged version of the A4 and A6 sedans. It’s offered in both regular and long wheelbase versions, for those want extra room in the backseat. On the outside, the A8 comes standard with adaptive xenon headlights, 19” alloy wheels, and automatic windshield wipers. Exterior options for further sprucing up the A8’s appearance include twenty inch wheels, full-LED headlights, soft-closing power doors, and funky trapezoidal exhaust tips.

The interior of Audi’s A8 is adorned in leather, wood, and technology. There are leather seats, climate control, a tilt/telescoping multifunction steering wheel, satellite navigation, and a Bose premium sound system, all as standard. Several different types of wood, leather, and cloth are optional, allowing prospective owner’s to mix-n-match and find an interior they prefer. In addition, a panoramic sunroof with a solar panel, leather-wrapped sport seats, and a Bang & Olufsen sound system are all options.

Any high-end German sedan on the market needs to have an impressive list of engines if it’s going to sell – it’s just what they do. With a choice of three fabulous engines and standard Quattro all-wheel drive, the A8 does not disappoint. The base engine is a 333-horspower, supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 with 325 pounds-feet of torque and is good for 18/28 MPG city/highway. The mid-range engine, if you can call it that, is Audi’s 420-horsepower, turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 with 444 pounds-feet of torque. With mpg ratings hovering around 17/28 city/highway, it’s hard to see the disadvantages of the bigger engine. The top-of-the-range engine is a 500-horsepower, 6.3-liter W-12 with 463 pounds-feet of torque and it returns 13/21 mpg city/highway. All of the engines are paired with an eight-speed automatic that has several modes for economical, normal, or sporty driving.

The Audi A8 is no doubt a safe car with ten airbags, traction/stability control, antilock disc brakes, and special high-strength steel as standard. The 2013 A8 also splurges when it comes to safety technology, offering night-vision cameras, lane-change assist, parking assist, adaptive cruise control, and a special camera system for peeking around tight corners.
