Most Comfortable Luxury Sedan I've Ever Owned

by AUDIA8L from Youngsville, LA | July 21, 2020

My primary goal in the purchase of this sedan was comfort. Due to multiple spinal surgeries seating, adjustability was crucial. The A8 was far superior to other luxury sedans I considered including Luxus, BMW, Mercedes Benz, Cadilac, Lincoln, and Infinity. The bonus was that no compromise on luxury and performance was required. This sedan has outperformed every luxury sedan I have ever owned including Lexus, BMW, and Mercedes Benz. We also own an Audi Q7 which is equally outstanding though not as comfortable. We are downsizing to one vehicle and the grandkids require the Q7.

Best value of high end cars, Owned all, A VAULT!!

by Eddie S from Port Jefferson Station,New York | July 08, 2020

This is my first Audi. Bought mine pre owned back in Dec.,had 19,000 miles, and bought for 40k fully loaded. Every option you could get. Obviously due to virus not able to put that many miles on it. Only 2100 miles in 7 months.The best value and all around car in this category. Best combination of Mercedes and BMW all in one. Feels and reminds me of Bentley/ Rolls Royce solidity. No problems, very reliable , driving , looks(constantly told how nice it is black/camel. Had driven a BMW for past 14 years, and by now with any of them ,I would have been at dealership with minimum of 2 -3 problems . Happiest I’ve been with owning any car. Highly recommend

Excellent engineered vehicle

2017 Audi A8 Overview

The A8 is Audi's flagship sedan and it's available with a choice of two gasoline engines: a supercharged V-6 or a turbocharged V-8. Audi has dropped the gas W-12 engine, so named because it has four cylinder banks that approximate the shape of a W, and the turbo-diesel V-6. The diesel is shelved while Audi and parent company Volkswagen resolve an emissions-cheating scandal with government authorities. Competitors include the BMW 7 Series, Mercedes-Benz S-Class and Lexus LS 460. A performance model, the S8, comes with a V-8 engine.
