Audi’s current A8 is in its third generation, and has been on sale around the world since 2009. Soon, the company will release a fourth generation version. The new A8 will make an appearance in July at the Audi Summit In Barcelona, Spain. It will make its global premiere at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show. According to Audi Chairman Rupert Stradler, the Audi A8 will be intuitive and generously dimensioned.

The design should be of concern to most people as the previous versions are all well-built and fun to drive and look at. The new A8 shouldn’t disappoint as it will offer a more refined look. It will be lighter than previous versions and more compatible with alternative powertrains. Keeping up with trends, the vehicle will come with the most advanced self-driving system to come from the company. However, until current legislation is ready, it won’t be available for use, but that may change soon.

The cabin will see a host of minor changes, including autonomous features, including a newer version of Traffic Jam Assist, which will work at speeds of up to around 38 miles per hour. The new 2018 Audi A8 will also have the second generation of Audi’s virtual cockpit. With the virtual cockpit, technology is your co-pilot, and you will enjoy a high-resolution screen and an animated instrument cluster. This makes it more fun to drive, all while being safer.

When looking at previous versions of the Audi A8, many were excited for the engine, and Audi didn’t disappoint. The new version will have a 460 horsepower, V-8 engine, a 565 horsepower W-12 and lots of diesel options, though the diesel versions probably won’t be available in the United States. Since it should be lighter and have a bigger and more efficient engine, drivers can expect better 0-60 and quarter mile times. Though, there shouldn’t be a huge departure from the general look of the A8. It will be tweaked slightly to improve cornering and the overall feel.

Whether you are interested in the next-generation version or a current A8, you can’t go wrong. You can test drive a 2017 Audi A8 at Audi of Tucson. Now, if you don’t know why the A8 is so great, you should know a few things about this sedan. It’s a full-size luxury sedan that also offers plenty of power and, despite its size, a sporty feel. This is rare in a sedan, especially one with so much luxury. With a 450 horsepower engine and a 0-60 time of 3.9 seconds, you aren’t driving your grandfather’s luxury car. At the same time, you get a respectable 29 mpg on the highway and 18 in the city. You also get all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission, which makes things smoother while on the road.

While the Audi A8 may be a bit out of your price range, if you can afford it, you will enjoy unparalleled luxury, along with plenty of little extras to make you happy and comfortable, and considering what you get, it’s a steal compared to the competition.

A small, compact car that has been around for over 20 years, the Audi A3 has gone through some changes over the years, both minor and major.

With a panoramic sunroof, plenty of power and great handling, the Audi A3 is certainly built for fun.

It’s hard to find a well-built, fun to drive and luxurious car without spending a lot of money. While not priced as cheaply as a boring and underpowered sedan, the Audi A3 is certainly affordable, and you can get the base model for around $31,000. Considering all the included luxury, it’s a great deal. If you want to invest more, including improving the exterior appearance or 14 speakers, you can make your driving experience that much better.

When getting a new car, you may be worried that you will end up with a boring dud. But, with the Audi A3, you are in luck.
