It’s not often that we get a new flagship A8 saloon, and Audi has pulled out all the stops to make its biggest car super luxurious. Its autonomous driving capabilities mean it can practically drive itself in traffic and the new 48-volt architecture allows for engineoff coasting and intelligent stop and start that turns it into a mild hybrid. The suspension uses cameras to detect bumps up ahead for improved comfort and there’s even an optional 23-speaker stereo. Every A8 is crammed to the rafters with the latest technology and that’s why it is one of our favourite luxury cars.
