This large luxury saloon is impressively packaged and strongly hints at its sporty capabilities, most noticeably with its expanded wheel arches. Inside the four-door vehicle, a spacious and luxurious five-person cabin provides 14-way-adjustable front seats and a rear row that offers plenty of knee, leg and headroom. There are numerous storage cubbies throughout, and the vehicle possesses a minimum-capacity 520-litre boot.
A 4.1-litre diesel engine produces 385bhp, 850Nm of torque and races from 0-60mph in a little over five seconds, making it more powerful and quicker than several sports cars. Alternatively, a 3.0-litre diesel unit is more restrained, returning up to 40mpg combined.
The A8 L expands upon the A8’s wheelbase and thus its interior dimensions, providing even more space for travellers. Materials such as soft-to-the-touch leather, brushed aluminium finishes and walnut-veneer inlays confer sublime sophistication upon the cabin.
The S8 hints at its athletic prowess with 20-inch alloy wheels and cocooning front sports seats. It is perhaps little surprise that it can go from 0-60mph in approximately four seconds. A Bose surround-sound system is included too, as is a seven-inch colour display screen.
Safety is not an issue with the A8 range, particularly when passive safety features and driver aids include six airbags, Electronic Stability Control and tyre pressure sensors.
