The Audi A8 may be best enjoyed from the rear seats. You can really stretch out, and there’s still enough room for your luggage – no matter how many suitcases you travel with!
Getting comfortable behind the wheel of an Audi A8 is dead easy. The steering wheel itself adjusts up-and-down and in-and-out electrically, and the driver’s seat also moves electrically for height. Lumbar support is standard and both front seats are cooled and heated.
All A8s have enough space for tall passengers in the back, but if you want loads of room the longer A8L’s extra legroom means you can literally stretch your legs right out.
A8Ls are available with optional massaging Relaxation Seats. They recline to help you stretch out on a long journey, have a footrest that pops out from the backs of the front seats and, for a heap of extra legroom, also have a button for sliding the front passenger seat forward. All this is controlled by a removable iPad-style display that looks ultra cool.
The Audi A8 has lots of interior space that helps you keep its smart cabin looking tidy.
All the door bins are big enough to take two bottles of water and you get a large cubby under the front centre armrest that’s a great place to hide your smartphone. The only disappointment is the tiny glovebox that’s smaller than you get in either the BMW 7 Series or the Mercedes S-Class.
Even a giraffe wouldn’t struggle for legroom in the back of the A8 – it’s enormous
The Audi A8’s 490-litre boot is smaller than the boots in the Mercedes S-Class (510 litres) and the BMW 7 Series (515 litres) but it’s still plenty big enough for a couple of large suitcases. The Audi lowers itself to aid loading but any heavy luggage has to be lifted over a large boot lip, although that’s true of the Mercedes and BMW too.
