Audi A8 Overview

Audi's flagship provides smooth and effortless acceleration, yet attains commendable fuel economy even with all-wheel drive. The car handles crisply and holds the road tenaciously, making it one of the sportiest luxury sedans. Expect a ride that's firm yet supple. Interior ambience and quality of materials and craftsmanship is top-notch, with exceptionally comfortable and supportive front seats that have a variety of massage settings. The controls are overly complicated and the trunk is small for a car this size. Both regular and long-wheelbase versions are available. A 3.0-liter, supercharged V6 is the base engine and the S8 gets a 520-hp, turbo V8. A 3.0-liter V6 diesel is new.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
