2013 Audi A8 L evaluation records
STREET TEST EDITOR JONATHAN WONG: The course is full of if you happen to be searching for a burst powerful records, meaning, you're in luck. You've the Mercedes-Benz S-class, BMW 7-series, Jaguar XJ and the Audi A8, the latter of which is actually my personal favorite among the lot.
Why? I believe the A8 may be the ideal mixture of first-class luxury, modest (but nonetheless elegant) enjoyable travel character and design.
The cottage of the A8 is beautifully cut with feature pieces and good leathers. Chairs are comfortable and all of the settings are organized in a reasonable way, with every thing easily in reach. The MMI system remains my personal favorite infotainment system one of the luxury models because of its spontaneous procedure.
For this type of large car, it addresses incredibly. It's surefooted around edges with a little slim. Steering sense is gentle, but attentive to steering inputs. Wheels are powerful and quickly scrub off speed. It will be drives such as for instance a much smaller car.
Using the turbocharged V8, there's lots of energy to get things going quickly if you want to. It's a clever motor with peak torque available down low. Give credit towards the ZF eight-speed automatic transmission, also, for fast, imperceptible changes.
However the most amazing thing in regards to the A8 to me could be the smooth ride. It's a quiet and enjoyable experience, which would get this to car well suited for long trips.
My one problem concerning the car requires the shifter. Placing it into drive and pulling straight back on it is simple enough, but receiving it into park was only a little hairy on a few instances. If you do not press forward about the shifter hard enough, it'll just change into reverse, which caught me off guard; the vehicle crept backward, which is scary when you assume it to sit still.
Despite that small quip, I'm an A8 lover. The BMW 7-series is good, but I'd never purchase a car with run-flat tires. The Jaguar XJ is the looker in the class, but the Mercedes-Benz S-class is long in tooth, and the slow touchscreen software drives me bonkers. Obviously, there's a brand new S-class on the road, but until then I'll get Audi's flagship total others
