Audi A8 (2022): subtle restyling for the luxury sedan

Audi give her A8 a last facelift. And since there will be no combustion engine successor, the Ingolstadt engineers strove to say goodbye worthy of the name to the flagship of the brand. Here are the details of a gentle restyling.

Subtle aesthetic modifications

As usual, the changes are minor in terms of stylistic retouching. It is especially at the level of the front face that this is happening. The large sedan receives new matrix LED headlights as well as a new grille, more imposing and surrounded by a chrome frame thicker. The pattern of the latter is also chrome. The whole gives the whole more character with an aspect ” chainmail« .

Inside, there is also change. The tint Cognac which was previously reserved to Audi Exclusive customers is now available to all future buyers. We also find 10.1-inch screens installed on the head restraints for rear seat passengers.

But the real highlight of this cabin is, as usual, the seat to the right of the driver. In the “long” version, the Audi A8 offers a function sleep and massage for this exclusive seat.

More power for the A8 in PHEV only

Compared to the version prior to the facelift, the engines have not been modified. A motor V6 gasoline 340 ch or one 286 hp diesel engine are still on the list, as well as a V8 in two different power levels: 460 hp in the A8 and 571 hp in the S8.

Finally, there is a plug-in hybrid version with a power slightly higher than the previous version. The set now develops 462 hp instead of 449 hp previously. All versions are of course still coupled to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Regarding prices, the luxurious Audi is offered from 99 500 euros. If you have the means, you will be able to order the A8 Facelift from December 2021!
