About New Audi A8

Audi has officially taken the wraps off the new A8 luxury sedan. The unveiling took place at the first ever Audi Global Summit in Barcelona. The new Audi A8, now in its fourth generation, gets an all-new exterior design language and an all new and ultra-luxurious interior with huge impetus on future technology and connectivity. The new generation Audi A8 will also be capable of advanced Level 3 autonomous driving, the first of its kind for any automobile globally.

New Audi A8 Preview

In terms of exterior design, the new Audi A8 takes its inspiration from the Prologue concept that was showcased back in 2014. The new A8 features the new front end design with a large single-frame grille and laser headlamps. The look of course, as is usually the case with the German luxury automaker, is evolutionary and not a big change from the previous generation. That said, it does look a lot more muscular and instantly recognizable from the last generation A8. The new A8 also gets a very distinct front daytime running light design combined with the matrix headlamps.
