Superior comfort, lightweight design and a host of high-end technologies define the new 2019 A8, flagship of the Audi car model range. Like the A6 and A7, the A8 is powered by a turbocharged 3.0-litre V6, although the A8’s engine is mated with an eight-speed Tiptronic transmission. The powertrain also uses a combination alternator and starter that is capable of recuperating up to 12 kilowatts of power through regenerative braking, which is then sent to the car’s 48-volt lithium-ion battery. Stylish yet reserved, the A8 comes to Canada in long-wheelbase “L” form, the 2019 model some 130 millimetres longer than the outgoing model. Inside, the extremely well contented and luxurious cabin is dominated by a 10.1-inch touchscreen in the upper console while lower down there’s an 8.3-inch screen that monitors the HVAC system.
