Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 A8 poses a genuine threat to Mercedes-Benz, BMW, and Cadillac. It is taller, longer, more isolated from the road, yet better controlled than the A8 it replaces. It is a cruise missile for the wealthy; it flattens mountains and straightens freeways with ease. And even absent Traffic Jam Pilot, the official term for the headline self-driving feature, it’s quite likely the most technologically advanced car in the world.

Pros
A big fella who can dance,
superb ride comfort and body control,
anechoic-chamber silent,
subtle for a limo.

Cons
Advanced self-parking features need more work,
sober styling inside and out,
questionably unfinished.
