Richly-Appointed 2018 Audi A8 Debuts on the Cutting Edge

Today, Audi took the wraps off the fourth generation of their flagship sedan, the 2018 A8. While the rest of the lineup has been introducing innovative tech at a blistering pace, the new A8 will outdo it with more semi-autonomous driving functionality, a mild hybrid powertrain, and quite a few other neat gadgets.

The A8 will be a trend-setter for the rest of the lineup, thanks to its chiseled design and athletic roofline. But tech is what will be taking the center stage. A 48-volt electrical system will power more than just the hybrid powertrain. It will also allow for adaptive damping suspension, that will adjust for bumps and potholes on the fly. Traffic Jam Pilot will become more autonomous than ever, with the car able to drive itself at speeds up to 37 mph, with throttle, steering, and braking being controlled.

We’re not sure which of the five announced engines will make it to the U.S. just yet, but we’ll let you know as we learn more. Contact our Audi dealership in Escondido, CA at your convenience to learn more, and to get details not mentioned on our blog. Believe us—there are plenty more!
