Finally, the fourth generation Audi A8 has been listed as a car for sale in Abu Dhabi, UAE and it looks good enough to give serious competition to BMW’s 7 Series and Mercedes’s S-Class. The car comes with various safety technologies, boasts of lightweight aluminum architecture, and offers an impressive amount of horsepower. The car was first revealed at the 2018 LA Auto Show.
The Audi A8 Doesn’t Leave A Lot To Be Desired
The Audi A8 2019 comes with different autonomous drive modes and is fitted with a powerful V8. The customers in UAE get two options: a 4.0-liter turbo V8 rated at 460 horsepower and a 3.0-liter turbo V6 rated at 340 horsepower. Needless to say, the V8 variant offers 120 horsepower and 160 Nm of torque more when compared to the base V6 model and enables it to go from 0-100 km/h in just 4.6 seconds. This means the car is powerful enough to confidently cruise through highways and hit straightaways with no problems at all.
The car also comes with an auto start/stop system that is so good that you wouldn’t want to turn it off. The result is that the sedan transitions smoothly and seamlessly from engine off to moving forward at stop lights.
The Audi A8 also features tight steering that gives you a better grip of the car all the while offering a smooth ride, courtesy of the all-wheel steering and the standard adaptive air suspension. This means you get a dynamic driving experience. The MHEV variants also come with an optional sport differential that sends power to individual wheels when required.
