By: Jeff Youngs, 6/6/2014
"As the flagship of the Audi brand, the A8 represents the best in Audi innovation, design, and craftsmanship," said Scott Keogh, President, Audi of America. "The A8 has been a strong contributor toward building our brand, and the changes for the 2015 model year will continue to build upon that success."
The extended-wheelbase Audi A8 L features an available TDI clean diesel engine that delivers an EPA-estimated 24 mpg city/36 mpg highway/28 mpg combined. The A8's optional 4.0-liter V-8 engine has increased horsepower this year: 435 compared with 420 for the 2014 model. A new electromechanical steering column helps reduce weight and improves fuel efficiency, Audi says. Dynamic steering, newly available as part of the sport package, provides variable-ratio steering that increases responsiveness based on speed and steering input required. Completely redesigned LED headlights are now standard on the full model line, complemented by creases in the hood as well as a newly designed grille, bumper, and splitter. Available safety features include active lane assist, night-vision assist, and secondary collision assist.
The 2015 Audi A8's interior can be equipped with 22-way front seats with five different massage functions, as well as improved acoustic measures for a quieter cabin experience and optimized trunk packaging for increased space and usability, according to Audi.
The highest-end version of the 2015 A8 model line is the A8 L W12, which features the first 12-cylinder engine with intelligent cylinder control, to improve highway efficiency. The A8 L W12 offers a selection of five different inlays and an à-la-carte menu of custom options.
