Audi’s flagship sedan, the A8, is a rival to the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, BMW 7 Series and Lexus LS. The car’s base engine is a 335-horsepower, turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6; a 453-hp, twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 is available. Audi also sells a plug-in hybrid version of the A8 that can travel around 17 miles on electric power alone. The high-output S8 — the performance version of this full-size luxury sedan — has a 563-hp V-8. All powertrains work with an eight-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel drive is standard.
New standard features include 22-way power-adjustable front seats and a 360-degree camera system with a virtual viewing mode. The S8 now comes with standard front heated armrests and 21-inch wheels with summer tires.

If you have the means to afford a full-size luxury sedan, the A8 is worth a look. Its range of available powertrains is a plus, and its classy interior impresses. Some might find the design too conservative, however, and rivals offer similar levels of luxury.
