Audi A8 Test Drive & Review
The first car that Audi designed to launch in India says a lot about the company. The A8 is just one of the best and is out to compete against the Mercedes S class, an unrivalled luxury saloon.
The A8 at 5 metres is almost a limousine. The car is styled to reflect a calm and simple efficiency. The rectangular headlamps and the large grilles give a dignified appeal to the car. The sheer size of the car imposes confidence about the luxury it will offer. Inside the instruments and materials are splendidly done with excellent materials. The upholstery reminds us the segment the A8 aims to conquer.
Under the hood, sleeps a 4.2 liter V8 which will produce a peak power of 335 bhp. When provoked the A8 is as vindictive as it gets. The A8 is made of aluminum in most parts and as a result is very light. The engine note of the V8 is just plain intoxicating. The eager engine will give you an unmatched performance.
Ride and Handling:
The A8 utilizes the Quattro four-wheel-drive system which means every aspect of the cars behavior is closely monitored and adjusted by a plethora of gadgetry. The car rides on adaptable air suspension with adjustable rear suspension. The six speed ZF gear box is state of the art and offers no protest when pushed around. The car is very stable and there is very little body roll. At higher speeds the suspension automatically reaches the lowest setting and the steering is made a little stiffer.
The A8’s seats are very comfortable though the cushion could have been softened a little. The space inside the car is simply too much and is definitely the largest we’ve seen. There are certain interesting technological features like an electronic hand brake which disengages automatically when the car is started to driven and an innovative Multi-Media Interface.
The price range and segment the A8 targets demands strict safety standards, and it does not disappoint. Seatbelts with pretensioner, air bags and ABS are features that are included in the A8.
The Audi A8 is all set to challenge the Mercedes S class and probably the only thing standing in its way is the small service network and a less recognized brand.
