Outside, we can see big changes in a bigger and bolder single frame grille, new sharped LED headlights, subtle creases on the side and a sleeker roof line. At the rear, the fascia is less upright and the tail lights are also revised with a single piece look. The new A8 remains the long-wheelbase body style as its predecessor.

According to Audi, the new A8 is the first production model to be specially applied highly automated driving. To be specific, the Audi AI Traffic Jam Pilot will carry out the function of driving in slow-moving traffic and managing the accelerator, steering and the brakes as well. Therefore, the driver will no longer need to permanently monitor the car.
