With its predictive active suspension, long wheelbase, powerful but efficient V6 engine and a host of other advanced features, the new Audi A8 L 3.0 TFSI MHEV offers specifications and equipment unmatched by competitors in its class.
Predictive active suspension—a feature not available in other flagship luxury sedans—lets the Audi A8 L provide the supreme ride comfort of a chauffeur-driven limousine or the firm handling of a sports car. The system is fully dynamic, relying on electromechanical actuators to lift or force down each of the vehicle’s wheels individually to actively manage ride height in every situation. Using a camera located at the front of the car, the system identifies uneven surfaces before these are reached, and predictively regulates the active suspension.
Included in the predictive active suspension settings are “dynamic” and “comfort plus” which control the car’s air suspension and the Audi drive select dynamic handling system. In “dynamic” the A8 L becomes a sports car as it turns in firmly when cornering fast. In “comfort plus” the profile lets the luxury sedan glide over any surface, with the driver and passengers barely noticing the car is cornering.
The long wheelbase of the Audi A8 L translates into a roomy and progressive interior. Resembling a spacious lounge with minimal forms elegantly outlined by ambient lighting, among the features here is the Rear Seat Entertainment system comprised of two Audi tablets and the Rear Seat Remote. With these items, passengers can enjoy watching movies on sites like Netflix, browse the Internet, and access other apps. Connectivity to any platform is assured by Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Audi Cool Box in the rear seat pampers passengers even more by keeping drinks chilled.
Audi’s MMI touch becomes the MMI touch response in the A8 L. At the center of the car’s instrument panel is a 10.1-inch touchscreen display. Other advanced luxury features of the Audi A8 L include the 360° 3D-view camera, panoramic sunroof, an air quality package composed on an air ionizer and perfume, multifunction massage in all seats, and a Bang & Olufsen audio system.
Powering the new Audi A8 L is a 3.0-liter, turbocharged V6 gasoline engine developing 335 hp and 500 Nm. The engine is equipped with a mild-hybrid system composed of a belt alternator starter (BAS) and a lithium-ion battery with 10 Ah electrical capacity. This allows the car to coast at speeds between 55 km/h and 160 km/h with the engine switched off, in the process producing zero emissions for up to 40 seconds. As soon as the driver steps on the throttle pedal again, the BAS prompts a swift, smooth restart. A new 48-volt system that functions as the main vehicle electrical system offers a high recuperation power of up to 12 kW plus start-stop operation from 22 km/h, reducing fuel consumption.
Paired to the new Audi A8 L’s engine is a quick but gently shifting eight-stage tiptronic transmission. Audi’s quattro permanent all-wheel drive system with self-locking center differential, as well as 20-inch Audi Sport alloy wheels, come as standard.
