A Closer Look at the 2019 Audi A8

The 2019 version of the Audi A8 is actually the fourth generation model of the luxury car put out by this manufacturer. Each one is filled with the latest technology, much of it futuristic in nature, and the new 2019 model is no exception. Even the exterior body of the car incorporates a blend of plastic, silicon, and metal that seem to stretch the limits of what car manufacturers can do today. The car is so futuristic that there are actually some features that are not even currently allowed in the American market, meaning that this model has had to be scaled back just a bit. That being said, there is still plenty to talk about. So, here is a closer look at the 2019 Audi A8.

Only One Configuration Offered in America

The 2019 Audi A8 is comprised of a lot of aluminum. That gives the car a sleek and modern look. That being said, this model will only come in one wheelbase configuration when sold in the United States. The length of the wheelbase is 123.1 inches. This gives it an axle span that is just slightly smaller than Mercedes Benz’s S Class vehicle, while it is 3.3 inches smaller than the 7-Series by BMW. You will find that the overall length of the vehicle increases just a bit to 208.7 inches, giving the back seat passengers quite a bit of room. You will also find that that the rear of the Audi A8 is quite accommodating and compares nicely to similar models manufactured by BMW and Mercedes.

This car has a unique feature for those back seat passengers. There is a foot massager that is options. This will actually fold out from the back of the passenger’s seat in front. We don’t know of many other cars, if any, on the market that has that feature today. Also added into this configuration is an active suspension system. This will effectively lift the body of the car if it is impacted from the side, which is designed to provide better protection to the occupants of the vehicle. The cool thing about this feature is that it is driven by technology. Behind the scenes, this feature continuously scans the roadway up ahead to determine if the body should be raised or lowered with each new corner that comes alone. This allows the 2019 Audi A8 to seemingly glide over any bumps and potholes that come along on the road.

Other Cool Options

Let us be clear in saying that the base model of the 2019 Audi A8 is extremely luxurious. You really cannot go wrong with it. That being said, there are some cool features that you can add to the configuration of the vehicle should you opt to go that route. To begin, there is the option for four-wheel steering that you can get, along with an upgraded series of wheels that are each 20-inch. The tires would be a 265/40R-20 Goodyear Eagle F1, which have been tested as having a skipped of only 0.93g, which is better than comparable models from Mercedes, BMW, and Lexus. There are also 14.8-inch front breaks, along with 13.8 inch rear brakes. These are both controlled by a pedal that is easy to modulate and rather firm. One test has this car being slowed down from 70 miles per hour to 0 miles per hour in less than 150 feet. This is a full 10 feet better than any of the other luxury car manufacturers in its class.

This car is big, but it handles small. It would appear that the engineers at Audi went to great lengths to develop a luxury car that could handle corners with ease, even at speeds over 100 miles per hour. The steering is extremely smooth and precise. You have four different modes to choose from when steering. You can opt for comfort, auto, dynamic, or individual. This helps the driver to tweak the performance of the engine and transmission just a bit.

All in All

This is a great entry into the luxury car market. The 2019 Audi A8 has a standard 48-volt hardware system that contains a lithium-ion battery and an alternator-starter that is belt driven. You will find that the stop and start system that powers the engine can cut out the engine and then restart it again even when traveling up to 14 miles per hour. With an EPA of 27 miles per gallon, even the fuel economy on this model seems to be excellent. It will be interesting to see how it sells in the American market.
