Modest A8: Audi’s flagship has undergone a restyling


The facelifted 2022 Audi A8 features a wider grille, improved optics and an abundance of chrome trim. For the first time, a flagship from Ingolstadt is offered with the S Line package.

This is reported by RBC-Ukraine Auto with reference to the press service of Audi.

A few days after the premiere of the luxurious Audi A8L under the revived premium Horh brand, the company is unveiling updates for the entire A8 family. Restyling brought the flagship sedan Audi a redesigned front end of the body, new colors and technologies in the cabin. The model is also available for the first time in its history with the S Line sports package.

The side air intakes on the bumper have a more vertical arrangement, and above them are redesigned headlights, each of which includes 1.3 million micromirrors of the digital matrix.

For the first time since its debut in 1994, Audi is offering its luxury sedan with the S Line package, bringing sporty styling cues from the S8. LED taillights come as standard and feature new graphics, giving the Mercedes S-Class rival a more modern look.

Rounding out the exterior are four new metallic paint finishes (District Green, Firmament Blue, Manhattan Gray and Ultra Blue) and five matte shades (Daytona Gray, Floret Silver, District Green, Terra Gray and Glacier White).

Since the interior of the A8 was top-notch and prior to the upgrade, there are minor changes to the cabin – the latest version of the Audi Virtual Cockpit is complemented by a head-up display, and a pair of 10.1 and 8.6-inch touchscreens are housed in the center console. There are two multimedia displays for the rear passengers.

While the fresh A8 L Horch is offered in China exclusively with a V6 engine, the European A8 / A8L is available with a choice of 3.0 TFSI and 4.0 TFSI units, as well as diesel and plug-in hybrid. Transmission – eight-band automatic TipTronic and Quattro AWD all-wheel drive system.

European sales of the updated flagship Audi A8 will start in December. At home, in Germany, prices for the base model will start at 99,500 euros.
