Audi’s answer to the Mercedes-Benz S-class is the 2022 Audi A8 L 60 TFSI. It offers a spacious interior and every conceivable luxury and convenience feature, which helps justify its nearly six-figure starting price.
The Audi A8 L 60 TFSI styling is expertly rendered to look ritzy but restrained, and fans of the smaller A4 and A6 sedans will find the A8 handsome. Its cabin, however, is far more comfortable than those four doors. It offers similar space and features as the S-class and the BMW 7-series, the Audi’s other natural rival.
Massaging seats for both front and rear passengers are available and Audi also includes a host of driver-assists as standard. Drivers looking for more oomph should consider the performance-oriented S8 model.
The base 55 TFSI comes with a turbocharged V-6 rated at 335 horsepower, and the 60 TFSI has a 453-hp twin-turbo V-8 engine. Both versions use a 48-volt hybrid system. An eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive are standard.
The plug-in hybrid 60 TFSI e combines the V-6 with an electric motor and a rear-mounted 14.1-kWh battery pack. The 2021 Audi A8 TFSI e is rated at 443 hp.
