A full-size four door luxury sedan, the 2012 Audi A8 is available in a NWB, L, and W12 trim levels. The standard NWB trim is powered by a 4.2-liter V8 engine that produces 372 hp and 328 lb-ft of torque, for a 0-60 time of 5.7 seconds. Paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission and AWD the standard A8 achieves an EPA estimated 18 mpg city and 28 mpg highway. Upgrading to the L trim level grants the driver rear window shades, Audi parking system plus, rear seat comfort package, and power door close assist. For increased performance Audi offers a W12 trim level that equips the A8 with a W12 engine, producing 500 hp/463-lb of torque for a 0-60 time of 4.4 seconds. Fuel mileage for the W12 falls within an EPA estimated range of 14 mpg city and 21 mpg highway. Upgraded features include 20-inch wheels, 22-way front comfort seats, touch technology navigation, and rear seat entertainment system. Safety is comprised of night vision assistant with pedestrian detection, Sideguard� head curtain airbags, electronic stability control, rear-passenger thorax side airbags, and Audi lane assist. The A8 is backed by a 4-year/50,000-mile warranty.
The long-wheelbase version of the A8, the A8L, is now slightly longer than the BMW 7-Series, Lexus LS or Mercedes-Benz S-Class, bringing an exceptionally roomy interior. The A8 still manages to feel more nimble and responsive than would ever be expected for such a large vehicle. A number of other tech features, such as the industry-first full LED headlamps and the next-generation touchpad MMI interface inside, are market standouts.
Following a complete redesign in 2011, Audi's flagship A8 large luxury sedan returns for 2012 mostly unchanged. A new 4.0L V8 engine replaces last year's 4.2L V8, with a single turbocharger making 400 hp, while the 6.3L V12 engine gets a boost of power as well--up to 500 hp over last year's 450.
A direct-injected 4.0L turbocharged V8 engine making 400 horsepower is standard on A8 and S8L models. The A8L W12 FSI gets a direct-injected, 500-hp, 6.3L W12 engine. All A8 models come with quattro all-wheel drive, which is calibrated to feel sporty and enhance cornering confidence yet also take on slippery road conditions. The system can send 60 percent of torque to the rear wheels, or to whichever wheels have the best traction. Both models come with an 8-speed automatic transmission.
