  • Audi A8 named World luxury car 2018




    • Flagship model wins prestigious award
    • Ninth victory for Audi in the World Car Awards
    • Audi Board Member for Development Peter Mertens: “The Audi A8 is an innovation driver for our entire industry”


    The Audi A8 is the World Luxury Car 2018. The win underscores the status of the brand’s flagship as the embodiment of Vorsprung durch Technik. The award ceremony took place today (Wednesday, 28 March) at the New York Auto Show.

    In their decision, the 82 jury members from 24 countries assessed not only the emotional appeal, passenger comfort and safety, but also environment aspects as well as driving performance, market relevance and price-performance ratio. The Audi A8 prevailed against two competitors in the final elimination round. This marks the ninth overall victory for the brand with the four rings in the World Car Awards.

    “This award is a special honour for us and our flagship,” explained Peter Mertens, Board Member for Development at AUDI AG. “The new Audi A8 is an innovation driver for our entire industry. It sets new standards in automotive engineering with its innovative touch control system, consistent, broad electrification and the technical conditions for conditional automated driving.”

    The Audi A8 is being built at the Neckarsulm site and has been available to order in the UK since December 2017. In addition to its select materials and handcrafted-level build quality, its highlights include high-end equipment like the HD Matrix LED headlights with Audi laser light, dynamic all-wheel steering and the relaxation rear seat package with foot massage. UK pricing starts from £69,100 OTR for the standard wheelbase model and £73,095 OTR the A8 L.

    Re: Annoying rattle from dashboard

    Might not help you but mine was more like a squeaking noise and it turned out to be the passenger vent. Took it out greased everything and it's fixed.

    Im sorry that there are some people not 100% clued up about diesel engines and what ones are better than others and that also have to ask silly questions

    BiTurbo A6 Quattro Avant Running noise at speed - told its coming from the Diff

    My 2013 biTurbo S-line A6 Quattro Avant has started to generate a noise when it gets above 40mph and definitely worse at 50mph+. Like a drone or a whine.

    Is this even a real question?

    On a serious note I think the 1.6 is a fairly capable engine. But will you always regret not getting the 2.0?
