2016 Audi A8 Changes

The A8 is a full-size luxury 4-door sedan manufactured by Audi. This model originally came in 1994, as a successor of Audi V8. During this period we have seen three generations of it. Current model was presented in 2009, while serial production begun in 2010. This model is still under production. The 2013 model year received some updates, while 2014 year model came as a mid-cycle refresh version. Next generation of this luxury sedan is not expected to come before 2017, so 2016 Audi A8 won’t come with big changes. However, this is for “standard” A8 models. On the other side 2016 year model will come with new hybrid system, which will be used also for other future models of this German car manufacturer.

The Audi A8 delivers the stretch-out-space, high-tech gadgetry and pampering extras one would expect of a full-size luxury sedan, but it drives much smaller than its generous dimensions would suggest. These virtues, along with standard quattro all-wheel-drive and a wide range of powerful yet efficient motors, make the A8 a highly tempting option for executive sedan shoppers.

2016 Audi A8 Specs

With the A8, Audi’s fielded a sedan with arguably less compelling looks than its own lissome A7 hatchback. But the job of a German full-size four-door isn’t to draw stares, it’s to avert gazes. The details do the talking: the LED running lights and taillamps are heirloom-quality, all models now include full-LED headlights, and there’s not much other jewelry laid out for public inspection. It’s inside where the Audi hides its wealth: the cockpit’s lavish in a restrained way, with hides and wood and aluminum and even carbon fiber laid side by side, radiantly and so carefully, the sueded headliner takes some time to pick up.

The A8 comes well-equipped with leather upholstery, heated and power-adjustable front seats, a navigation system with SiriusXM Traffic, a 14-speaker, 630-watt Bose AM/FM/CD/SiriusXM/HD Radio Surround Sound System, Bluetooth connectivity, front and rear parking sensors, a rear parking camera, a sunroof, a power rear sunshade, dual-zone automatic climate control, LED taillights, adaptive xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights, and 19-inch alloy wheels.

Serious audiophiles will want to go for the top Bang & Olufsen Advanced sound system, which has 19 speakers, including small tweeters at the front of the cabin that emerge at startup, along with more than 1400 watts of power. Also on offer in back is a rear-seat entertainment system with its own 20GB hard drive and two 10.2-inch screens, or for the classic executive car need a folding table.

The A8 isn’t as sleek as an A7, but its details are still finely honed, its sheetmetal still handsomely shaped. It has much in common with the smaller A6 and A4 sedans, with proportions that reach for more of the long-nose drama that characterizes most classic sport sedans. Here, it’s necessary to fit the A8’s relatively compact 12-cylinder engine, but it’s leveraged to give the A8 a drawn-out elegance that works well with its broader shoulders. The full-LED lamps front and rear are awesome bits of detailing, but the grille’s less a standout than before.

All the energy conserved on the exterior appears to have been reserved for the exquisitely detailed interior. The A8’s cockpit, no matter how it’s layered wood, leather, aluminum, plastic, or all of the above gives the impression that it hasn’t missed a single detail. It’s finished in materials that typically show up in even pricier brands, and though there’s certainly a fair share of lines and surfaces and textures and knobs, the cumulative effect is exciting, not distracting.

The Audi A8 comes with the latest version of Audi’s MMI system, which is completely redesigned versus the previous generation. Once again, you get a rotating controller to scroll through menus, but the special new feature is MMI Touch–a scratchpad that makes address or info entry much easier by simply scratching out individual letters. Steering-wheel controls also let you see an abbreviated list of options, and a new Google Maps–based navigation system uses its own data connection to get live-updated mapping and routing information. That system and an integrated wireless hotspot have been made standard, though the data is on subscription from T-Mobile.

When it is about “standard” 2016 Audi A8, you should not expect anything special, when it is about new things. This model will be pretty much a carryover, with pretty much same characteristics as current model. Exterior look will be pretty much the same as refreshed 2014 year model and it will also feature new LED running lights, and Audi’s all-new Matrix LED forward lighting system. The 2016 Audi A8’s engine line up will also remain unchanged. It will be offered in two options, both with petrol engines.

More power can be had by stepping up to the twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8, which is good for 435 horsepower and 444 lb-ft of torque. Several publications have reported that the V8-equipped A8 is capable of scooting from zero-to-60 mph in under four seconds, which is impressively fleet for such a large machine. Despite the additional output, the V8 nearly matches the V6’s fuel economy with a 18/30 mpg rating.

For those who delight in excess, the A8 L can be equipped with a massive 6.3-liter W12 that churns out an even 500 horsepower at 6,200 rpm and 463 lb-ft of torque at 4,750 rpm. Unsurprisingly, the trade-off for all of that power is a drinking problem: efficiency is rated at just 14/21 mpg. The A8 L also offers a 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6. Good for an economy car-like 24/36 mpg, it churns out 240 horsepower and 428 lb-ft of twist.

The base model for the U.S. market will use 3.0 liter V6 that develops 310 horsepower and 324 pound-feet of torque. The other one, more powerful model will use 4.0 liter V8 engine, which is good enough for 435 horsepower and 444 pound-feet of torque. Both engines will be paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission.
