Audi’s flagship sedan, the A8, is a rival to the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, BMW 7 Series and Lexus LS.

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.
