The New S8 Beauty is in the details. Take a closer look and discover why every Audi is worthy of wearing the four rings. Follow the progressive lines through the subtle curves to the distinctive profile. The interplay yields an aerodynamic brilliance that’s as pleasurable tearing down an open stretch of road as it is staring at it in the driveway.
Set to debut at the Frankfurt show in just a few weeks from now, the latest A8 (and its performance version, the S8) benefits from a series of stylistic, powertrain, and technology upgrades. Among the most prominent, of all things, are the new Matrix LED headlights that can automatically lower the high-beams for oncoming vehicles, with integrated turn signals that light up to point in the direction the driver's about to turn. But that's hardly the end of the story.
Around back, the revisions continue, and the most obvious change is the new, wider trunk lid that allows for easier loading and gives the A8 broader-looking shoulders from the rear. The taillights are also a flatter design and look more aggressive than last year’s model. Finally, a new chrome strip strikes through the center of the trunk lid and through the taillights, and the rear under-bumper insert.
For the interior, Audi now offers more options including ventilation and massage functions on more models. Electrically adjustable, individual rear seats are also available as an option across the range. Otherwise, things inside haven't changed much. 2015 Audi A8 owners are still coddled in the finest leather and wood trim, and they still have access to all of the car’s various electronic features via the MMI navigation plus interface.
