The famous and most iconic model has finally got a successor in 2020 Audi A8. Not only that it provides more attractive details and great equipment, but it could also be very attractive thanks to new engines in combination with the old ones. The great news is that the price will not be much higher than last year.
- The model is fully redesigned and improved, so now is even better than before.
- There is great cabin, with numerous of improvements in technology and design.
- There is not clearly defined engine that will come under the hood.
- The price has always been way above the average price for the class.
There are two possible wheelbases that come as an optional version of the 2020 Audi A8. Aside from the shorter 131-inch made for the European market, there should be offered 123-inch wheelbase for the US market. The car itself is for 1.3 inches longer than wheelbase.
You may see similarities with Mercedes S-Class which is the main competitor, but also BMW 7. However, there are visible changes on the front end that include recognizable rhomboidal grille along with the chromatic frame and great LED lights on the sides.
The rear end is slightly changed, mostly in the design and shape of the taillights, but the car has not significantly changed the overall look from the last model.
The best in the cabin of 2020 Audi A8 is surely its design. Not it looks like a plane cockpit and not even close like a cabin in the sedan. However, the vehicle offers great equipment, including a new infotainment system, controlled by the 10-inch touchscreen, and great new noise protection.
Things like quality materials and leather trim are optional, but we expect that future buyers will choose them as part of the luxury that this car brings.
The German manufacturer has not been innovative when engine type is about. 2020 Audi A8 should get the same engines that last year model got. The most likely we were able to see again 3.0-liter V6 petrol engine with 335 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque.
However, it should not be the only offer that we will have. There could be a stronger option, with a 4.0-liter V8 petrol engine and 460 horsepower. Finally, green car fans should be satisfied with the 48-volt electric assistance in compilation with these two petrol engines as hybrid engines.
Those who loved previous W-12 engines could be disappointed knowing that it will not be available in the US anymore. All engines will have an eight-speed automatic transmission, as the previous model.
2020 Audi A8 Release Date and Price
It is not hard to predict that 2020 Audi A8 will cost a little more than last year model. With all upgrades and changes, the price of $83,000 will not be acceptable for the new model anymore. However, it should not be higher than $90,000 either. At least not for the base version.
The most important is that the new model could be offered to the buyers very soon, maybe before the summer.
