The redesigned 2019 A8 is one of the most impressive cars we’ve tested. This ultra-luxury sedan is immensely satisfying to drive, thanks to its smooth and responsive powertrain, an almost magic carpet ride, and elegant interior. We were impressed by the 335-hp, turbocharged V6 engine, which delivers the acceleration and performance of a bigger V8 engine.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
