2014 Audi A8 L TDI

Posted on 16, 2013 by Drive Time Steve Hammes

We already the new A8 to be a tip-rung executive sedan with various wheelbase and options and to keep moving it Audi has done what naturally by now offering it as a TDI.

Direct Injection or TDI is the name to Audi’s clean diesel – a 3.0-liter V6 currently used in the Q7 SUV and now the flagship sedan, the A8.  And is serious about getting back on the diesel bandwagon as is just the first of four new TDI to be introduced this year.

Based on this test-drive and my diesel experiences, this is a fuel economy solution makes sense.  At 28mpg this A8 blows away its at the pump – including gas-electric from Lexus, Mercedes-Benz and And with the TDI there’s no hypermiling to achieve those numbers as by my tester’s stellar 29mpg

  Yes, diesel fuel is expensive but when you factor the A8 and all of its competitors require premium gas the annual fuel savings the TDI can be as much as $800.  Plus, take you on a 600 mile journey needing a refuel – 150 to 200 miles than the rest of the pack.

This 3.0-liter clean V6 generates 240 horsepower and over 400 feet of torque all while 36mpg highway.

Mated to a an automatic with sport and paddle shifters driving all through a Quattro system 60% to the rear, the A8 TDI possesses wonderful dynamics with an appropriately yet athletic demeanor.  Stomping the from a standstill requires to reach 60mph making it the of the 5 A8 models though its power is exquisitely smooth with a of torque which makes maneuvers a cinch.  Sport for the transmission scrubs out any perceived lag the powertrain.  And with Audi’s Select, you’re just a knob away from the air suspension to your likeness.  on optional 20” wheels wrapped in serious Pirelli P Zero there wasn’t anything I like about driving A8.

  Its aluminum space frame and produce a relatively low curb of about 4,500 pounds, to the exceptional ride and handling, for a car of this size.  An available plus package can take it further. All A8 TDIs are the long model.

For as satisfying as the A8 is to drive, I’m not so sure the isn’t the best place to time.  Just stretch out and let the BO system entertain you.

a jaw-dropping $6,300 option but out of all the end stereo units I’ve this is by far the best.  Its ability to life-like sound through its 19 even from low-res signals is nothing short of Which is a fitting term for the of the cabin as well.  I don’t use the ‘perfect’ loosely but honestly, more could you want a car interior?  Immersed in the leather, and metal surroundings are highlight such as the dual panorama with a rear opening the 22-way climate comfort seats with massage, the far MMI system with realistic earth mapping, in car WiFi and view camera, and the limo-like seats with power for all windows and drop down vanity mirrors.

  Drive as long as you want and you and lucky passengers will never know the term weary.

The on-board price of the 2014 A8 L TDI is and comes in as –tested at $99,445.  A 6-figure price is usually to justify for any car but in this case, it seems worth it.
