The 2015 Audi A8 model line was redesigned for the new model year with exterior design changes that communicate a more dynamic wider stance. Leading technology helps improve the driving experience with Audi active lane assist, Night vision assistant – which now offers animal detection that can help alert the driver to deer and other animals that are hard to see in the night – secondary collision assist, which automatically applies the brakes after an initial collision, and a head-up display for easier viewing of vehicle speed, navigation and adaptive cruise control functions.
The A8, equipped with the optional 4.0T V8 engine, has been improved upon for 2015 with horsepower increasing from 420hp to 435 hp. A new electromechanical steering column helps reduce weight and improve fuel efficiency. Dynamic steering, available as part of the Sport package, provides variable-ratio steering that increases responsiveness and assist based on speed and steering input.
The updated S8 becomes even sportier with its new exterior design, featuring larger air intakes in the lower bumper and an available new sport exhaust with wide oval quad tailpipes, which allows passengers to audibly experience the 520hp twin-turbo V8. Inside, the newly available Vermont Brown leather appointed interior and carbon twill copper inlays combine the sporty character of the S8 with stunning elegance and craftsmanship.
