Benefits of Driving a 2013 Audi A8 Sedan

The long-wheelbase version of the A8, the A8L, is now slightly longer than the BMW 7-Series, Lexus LS and 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.

What's new for 2013?

For 2013 Audi has replaced the V8 engine in the A8 with a supercharged V6. The new engine promises to significantly improve fuel economy for the large A8 while still offering respectable performance.

Model Strengths

  • Strong acceleration
  • responsive handling
  • fuel efficiency
  • excellent MMI interface
  • extensive driver-safety and accident-avoidance features

Model Review

A direct-injected 3.3L supercharged V6 engine making 333 horsepower is standard on A8 models. The A8L W12 FSI gets a direct-injected, 500-hp, 6.3L W12 engine. All A8 and S8 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.
