2009 Audi A8
Cool New Car Models
The new Audi A8 has been described as a “supremely competent, utterly complete premium luxury sedan”. The Automobile Magazine has called the A8’s cabin “the sexiest sedan interior in the world”. Though there is weariness in the market in the present economic meltdown, key auto players like Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz are still introducing swankier, sportier and extremely sophisticated models. Audi’s new A8 is expected to make a dent in the up market auto sales.

The 2009 Audi A8 is an attractive car with a long body and a slightly arching roofline. “The sheet metal — its Armani suit — that wraps around the car is the best representation of the current Audi styling language and the huge full-length grille looks bold and luxurious”, according to Automobile Magazine. While driving, the new A8 is very “nimble, precise and responsive”, according to test-drivers. Along with the standard seventeen-inch rim wheels with 235-series all season tires, Audi also offers 18 inch and 19 inch rims with 255-series tires. Audi claims that the new A8 can go from zero to 100 km/h in just 8 seconds and can reach a top speed of 238 km/h.

Audi has reported in a press release “the 1,690 kg 2009 Audi A8 equipped with the company’s new 2.8-liter FSI engine features a standard fuel consumption of only 8.3 liter per 100 km (that’s about 34 mpg) and produces only 199 g/km of CO2 emissions” which is the best level in its class. The transmission has the conventional tiptronic 6-speed automatic. The updated Audi A8 executive sedan features new fog-lamps, new side mirrors with built-in turn signals, new wheels, new LED tail lamps, new steering system, new air suspension, as well as a set of new electronic assistance systems.

Reviewers find the interiors of the new A8 very “functional”. Its multifunctional steering wheel which has four controls and the standard Multi Media Interface (MMI), wood and leather interiors, comfortable driver’s seat have all come in for praise from reviewers. The MMI has been hailed as the “undisputed new benchmark among interfaces” for its simple, logical and easy-to-use design. Some of the other features include keyless ignition system, intelligent cruise control, 10 standard air bags and Adaptive Light System.

While conventional looking, the new Audi A8 promises to give stiff competition to the other luxury car manufacturers in the coming year.
