Audi has launched its new lighthouse, the 2019 Audi A8, at its Audi Summit in Barcelona. The car, arriving in the United States in the spring / summer of 2018, broadcasts several new technologies. We’ll get to a second.
2019 Audi A8 Design
Ufront, the 2019 Audi A8 clearly has a cleaner and wider look thanks to thin headlight clusters, wider grille and lower front fascia with more chrome strips that give it a more planted appearance. Even with thinner headlights, the front fascia of the new A8 is an obvious evolution from the front and rear of its predecessor. Watch the A8 2019 from the east side where it starts to differentiate itself from the outgoing model thanks to its lower, more cut-like roofline. This also makes the new car longer than the old A8, which has a more upright greenhouse that gives it a more conservative side profile. The new 2019 A8 features a new rear light assembly that features a LED light strip that runs through the entire rear end and is accentuated by a chrome strip to give it more width. Thinner taillights also give the rear of the car a thinner appearance compared to the old car, which had wider and more square clusters.
2019 Audi A8 Inside
Inside, the emphasis on high-tech features fits in, as the 2019 Audi A8 features many screens, including Audi’s slick slick cockpit system. The center stack features a dual touchscreen layout for the MMI interface and climate controls, heavy layout of old car buttons, retractable screen, buttons and touch pad layout. Audi also added a futuristic two-spoke steering wheel that gives the interior a more modern and distinctive look.
2019 Audi A8 Engine Details
We first get the V6 to 3.0 liters of gas, producing 282 hp and 368 lb-ft. Other engines arrive, including the V8 and W12, but Audi US continues to sort the engines we get. EV hybrids and plug-in (the latter with 31 miles of electric only) also arrive, and the rumor has a S8 of 550 horsepower is also developing. Regardless of the engine, all the A8s on board the United States are mild hybrids using a 48-volt electrical system to not only improve the mileage of gasoline, but also to fuel all the technology.
