Introduction

The 2017 Audi A8 and Audi S8 are the brand’s largest luxury sedans. For 2017, the lineup has been simplified: All 2017 Audi A8 models ride on the long wheelbase, featuring greater back-seat space. The high-performance 2017 Audi S8, on the other hand, continues on the shorter wheelbase.

Two engines are available for the 2017 A8, a V6 and a V8. (The costly, heavy W12 engine and the turbodiesel V6 are no longer available.) 2017 Audi A8s come standard with the sport package, with its more aggressive bodywork, front and rear.

Built with a light but strong aluminum space frame, the refined A8 is a full-fledged contender against the biggest BMW and Mercedes-Benz sedans. Simple, sophisticated body contours help keep the A8 fresh as years roll by.

Audi’s base engine, a supercharged 3.0-liter V6, develops 333 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque. If the V6 won’t quite suffice, the twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 generates a brawnier 450 horsepower and 444 pound-feet. That’s enough to propel the A8 to 60 mph in a breathless 4.4 seconds. Both engines mate with an 8-speed automatic transmission and Quattro all-wheel drive. A dynamic handling package now includes a rear sport differential.

Numerous safety features include front knee and rear-side passenger airbags. Audi’s Pre Sense system can tighten seatbelts before an impact occurs. Advanced safety technologies come in option groups, including adaptive cruise control with stop/go capability in traffic, blind-spot monitoring, lane-keeping assist, and Night Vision. Curiously, a rearview camera is optional, though parking sensors are standard.

Stepping way up the performance ladder, Audi’s S8 unleashes a 605-horsepower, twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 that develops 517 pound-feet of torque. The exterior might be plain, but occupants enjoy deep Valcona bucket seats, along with a rousing road experience. An S8 is able to hit 60 mph in a startling 3.7 seconds.

Only a few cues suggest the S8’s potential: LED lighting, 21-inch wheels and quad oval tailpipes. Adaptive dampers and air springs help keep the S8 calm, when it’s not being pushed hard. The S8’s trunk is unusually small for a full-size sedan, and rear leg space is limited by the short wheelbase.

Lineup

Two engines are available for the 2017 A8 L.

A8 L 3.0T ($82,500) has the long wheelbase and includes the supercharged V6 engine, Quattro all-wheel drive, leather upholstery, navigation, full-LED headlights, power front and rear seats, a sunroof, and power-closing trunk lid. Standard infotainment boasts satellite radio, Bluetooth phone and streaming, Bose speakers, and a USB port.

A8 L 4.0T ($91,500) features the twin-turbo 450-horsepower, 4.0-liter V8.

S8 ($116,850), the super-performance edition, is built on a short wheelbase and comes with a 605-horsepower V8. (Prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge.)

Walkaround

Befitting its elegant, sophisticated nature, the A8 relies on subdued styling, with nothing flashy or excessive. Among the group of executive-level luxury full-size sedans, in fact, Audi’s A8 has one of the most restrained, low-keyed exteriors.

Substantially less sleek and dramatic than the Audi A7 sedan, the big Audi A8 isn’t short on detail work. Full-LED front lights and taillights, for example, highlight the expansive elegance of the sedan’s hood, along with its shoulders. For 2017, the A8 body gets a touch of flair, courtesy of the newly standard sport appearance, with its hint of the super-performance S8.

Interior

The Audi A8 cabin is plush and comfortable. Whether trimmed with leather, wood, aluminum, or plastic, the A8 interior seems to omit not a single thoughtful detail, augmented by use of excellent materials.

At startup, for instance, tweeters rise from the dashboard, which is surrounded by splashes of chrome. The gearshift lever is patterned after a yacht’s throttle control.

Standard seats have 18-way power adjustment and are upholstered in lush perforated leather, softly padded atop a firm structure. Four adults benefit from abundant space, especially the pair in back, helped by multi-zone climate control. If power adjustment is included, the right-rear passenger has access to a footrest, whereas the left-hand occupant enjoys massaging functions and a reclining seat. Audi’s standard infotainment system impresses, but some controls are duplicated needlessly.

A dual-panel sunroof keeps the cabin bright, with no loss of head space. Trunk space is ample, at 13.2 cubic feet, with a long lid and wide opening.

Serenely silent much of the time, the A8 keeps most wind and road noise from entering, though tire sounds might seep in while accelerating. Abundant leg space in the back seat helps make it possible for rear passengers to get work done in comfort.

With Audi’s Multi-Media Interface, a console knob permits scrolling and selecting audio, phone, climate, and navigation functions. Voice control doesn’t always respond properly to commands.

Driving Impressions

Despite its weight, an A8 feels comparatively light and nimble, helped by its aluminum space frame. Quattro all-wheel drive provides sure-footed confidence, despite the suspension’s complexity. The torque split can vary between 40/60 and 60/40 front/rear, as needed.

Audi’s 3.0-liter V6 responds well, courtesy of strong low-end torque. However, it’s not especially smooth, and can become noisy when pushed hard. Acceleration to 60 mph takes 5.5 seconds, helped by well-spaced gearing in the transmission, which incorporates paddle shifters. Not only does the transmission shift smoothly, it seems to pick the best ratio without delay.

The available 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 is essentially the same engine used in the hot S8, but in a reduced state of tune.

Drive Select can control powertrain responses, steering weight, and suspension operation. Picking Comfort, Auto, or Dynamic mode can alter the experience from sedate all the way to dramatic. In Comfort or Auto mode, the transmission tends to shift quite early. Yet, pushing the pedal forcefully yields repeated downshifts. An Individual mode may be customized, to provide highway behavior between those two levels.

An A8 isn’t particularly frugal, which won’t surprise any typical buyer. With the V6 engine, the A8 L is EPA-rated at 19/29 mpg City/Highway, or 22 mpg Combined. Picking the V8 drops the city figure to 18 mpg. The S8 sedan is EPA-rated at 15/24 mpg City/Highway, or 18 mpg Combined.

Summary

Packed with impressive detailing, Audi’s A8 is one of the quietest, most comfortable, and spacious executive-luxury sedans on the market. Whether V6- or V8-powered, every A8 gets all-wheel drive, an 8-speed automatic, leather, and power amenities. For long highway journeys, the A8 is hard to beat – and well-off shoppers who demand ultimate performance can gravitate over to that sizzling S8.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
