Luxury sedans have a long tradition in the market and they have always been looked upon as a symbol of luxury. Another model among this tough competition has certainly been the 2019 Audi A8 that has already been on its way to hit the roads as a 2019 model. It will show some revolutionary improvements in terms of design, technology and its plug-in hybrid system under the hood.
The 2019 Audi A8 is going to make its appearance as a full-size four-door luxury sedan. Besides its well-known exterior features which make this model recognizable in the market, the new A8 will definitely undergo some serious changes and improvements in terms of styling. First of all, this sedan will get longer wheelbase than the outgoing model, which promises more space inside its luxurious cabin. Also, it has been said that the carmaker is going to combine high-strength steel with some lightweight materials such as aluminum and carbon fiber. You shouldn’t expect any drastic weight loss, but the next-generation A8 will definitely boost its overall efficiency and performance. Other enhancements that can be expected include its active suspension. The lighting system will use the latest LED technology and enable much better visibility.
The interior of the 2019 Audi A8 is also about to reveal some significant updates and innovations. Besides the improvements in terms of materials and overall comfort, the new Audi A8 will be equipped with Audi’s Al traffic jam pilot that will make the driving easier and help you in stop-and-go situations and those everyday traffic jams. It will include features such as camera, hands-free options, radar and ultrasonic sensors. The new A8 will also come with two touch-screen displays and the MMI infotainment system. Satellite navigation and the B&O sound system are just some of the high-tech options this model will provide.
As we have already mentioned in the intro, the 2019 Audi A8 will appear with some rather innovative plug-in hybrid system under the hood. One of the options, considered as the most possible, could use a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 engine that hits 340 horsepower. It will be paired to a 48-volt lithium-ion battery pack and mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Other possible version, paired with the same electrical system, includes a 4.0-liter V8 engine that hits 460 horsepower.
