Audi A8 - best luxury cars

The powerful and economical Audi A8 is a discreet alternative to the Mercedes S-Class

Best luxury cars - Audi A8

The Audi A8 is handsome and well proportioned, but takes cues from smaller Audis, so it doesn’t turn heads like the Mercedes S-Class and Range Rover.

Inside, you’re welcomed by top-quality materials and a logical dashboard. As you’d expect, there’s plenty of optional equipment on offer, plus a bewildering array of leathers, veneers and inlays to give your A8 an even more opulent feel. Still, with 12-way electrically adjustable leather heated seats, plus sat-nav and four-zone climate control, the cabin feels suitably exclusive even in standard form.

While the new model is still short of the Mercedes S-Class, Audi’s own take on understated luxury will be appealing to many buyers. Not only that, but the new model is more powerful and more economical, a combination any motorist will appreciate.
