The launch of the highly anticipated Audi A8 L will take place on July 12, reservations in progress
Audi India will launch the long-awaited flagship A8 L sedan on July 12, which is just a month away.
Reservations for the sedan are already underway for a token amount of Rs. 10,000,000. Customers can reserve the car through their nearest Audi dealership or online by visiting www.audi.in. Buyers can also customize their cars by configuring various options.
Unlike many global markets, Audi has brought here only the more upmarket long-wheelbase version that sports one of the best-in-class interior spaces in its segment.
The 2022 Audi A8 series made its global debut only about 6 months ago. The flagship series is powered by a 3-litre TFSI engine and a 48V mild-hybrid system with a combined output of 340hp and 540Nm.
Power is sent to the wheels via Audi’s proven quattro all-wheel-drive system.
The luxury sedan sports what Audi calls “predictive air suspension” which claims to offer improved handling without compromising comfort and ride quality. Interior comfort is further enhanced by the brand’s rear relaxation pack which includes a recliner and foot massager.
The car has voice operation (answering “Hey Audi”), deluxe 4-zone automatic climate control, new 10.1-inch screens in the rear, around 40 driver assistance systems and more.
The main changes on the exterior are the revised headlights and the front grille. The headlights now feature new rhomboid-shaped units which result in a new light projection pattern. Audi calls it “Digital Matrix LED Headlights” and they get animated projections.
The horizontal slats of the grille have been replaced by vertical slats which look a bit like a wire mesh when viewed from afar. The new wheelset improves the overall exterior appearance as their extremely low profile rubbers pronounce the alloy design well.
Being the German brand’s second launch this year in the country after the Q7, the A8 L will rival the Mercedes-Benz S-Class and BMW 7-Series while sitting alongside Audi’s existing A4 and A6.
