German automakers are often reluctant to radically revise their design languages, but the style of the new 2019 Audi A8 is significantly different from the previous generation. A wider, hexagonal grid complements the HD Matrix LED headlights with laser technology. Inspired by the 2014 Audi Prologue concept, the model is equipped with fine rear lights and a rear-mounted light bar.
Inside the cab, the Audi A8 has touch points that replace the previous model’s button range. A 10.1-inch touchscreen is located in the front and center, and a second touch screen allows occupants to control the air conditioning and other comfort features. A new navigation system takes information on recently conducted routes and provides the driver with intelligent search suggestions.
All A8s, regardless of market and engine, will present a form of hybrid assistance. In most versions, this is manifested by a 48-volt alternator / starter connected to the motor via the accessory belt. This unit, which is paired with a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 and an eight-speed automatic transmission of the A8 base, and which is suitable for an estimated power of 340 horsepower, can not move the car only under the energy electric. Instead, it increases the efficiency by widening the window to use the automatic engine stop and increase the amount of energy recovered in freewheeling. The automatic shutdown can stop the engine from 14 mph and now uses the camera to read the surroundings of the car. For example, the A8 engine restarts when the preceding vehicle advances, even if the driver’s foot remains on the brake. Between 34 and 99 mph, the 2019 Audi A8 locks for up to 40 seconds when the driver lifts the accelerator pedal.
