Vehicle Profile: 2020 Audi A8
Stately design and sporty performance unite in this upscale luxury sedan. The 2020 Audi A8 offers generous standard features alongside a wealth of available comforts and conveniences. And since it’s available in gas-powered and plug-in hybrid models, you can get the exact blend of performance and efficiency you demand. Here’s a look at what this impressive sedan has to offer.
The 2020 Audi A8 offers three powertrains that balance exhilarating performance with a refined ride. It comes standard with a 3.0-liter six-cylinder that pumps out 335 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque, but if you’re looking for more muscle, opt for the 4.0-liter eight-cylinder, found on the 60 TFSI quattro® model. It unleashes a whopping 453 horsepower and 487 lb-ft of torque. For a blend of power and efficiency, choose the plug-in hybrid model. Its high-tech powertrain offers an electric-only range of 17 miles alongside 443 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. Customize your ride further with Audi Drive Select, which lets you choose between Comfort, Dynamic, Auto or Individual mode, each with fine-tuned steering response, body control, cushioning, agility and long-distance comfort settings.
The stylish Audi A8 received some minor tweaks for the 2020 model year, including a lower, wider version of its signature Singleframe® grille. It also sports standard LED taillights with dynamic indicators and offers HD Matrix-design LED headlights, designed to visually extend the Singleframe® grille's upper top slat. You can also express your style by choosing the Executive Package, which adds chrome accents and a host of helpful safety technologies, like the top-view camera system. Choose the black optic package for a darker look, which includes blacked-out exterior chrome and 20-inch Audi Sport® five-spoke polished wheels.
No matter which model of the Audi A8 you choose, you’ll enjoy a wealth of standard comforts. These include four-zone automatic climate control, active climate control shutters, and heated, 18-way Valetta leather front seats. But the Audi A8 is more than just comfortable — it’s gorgeous, too, thanks to its breathtaking panoramic sunroof, Dark Brown Walnut Natural Wood trim and Dark Brushed Matte Aluminum inlays. Plus, the Audi A8 offers everything you need to keep your passengers happy — even during the longest car rides. Choose the Rear Seat Connectivity and Rear Seat Comfort packages to receive a pair of detachable 10.1-inch seat-mounted tablets and a 5.7-inch smart remote. It even comes with a rear-seat DVD changer and a DVD player, as well as the Audi music interface. You can also keep your backseat passengers cozy and comfortable with heated and ventilated massaging seats.
Stay connected no matter where you roam with the Audi A8’s standard MMI® Navigation plus system with natural voice controls. Manage your infotainment settings through the system’s dual touch screen displays, ideal for accessing your smartphone via Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™. And if you’re an audiophile, you’ll enjoy the standard Bang & Olufsen® 3D Premium Sound System, which comes with 17 speakers for full, rich, clear sound.
The 2020 Audi A8 takes luxury to the next level, thanks to its sleek exterior design combined with its bevy of distinguished interior features.
