Considering that at the moment in the Russian car market the Audi S8 of 2021 is sold in a single version, then the installed power unit under the hood of the sports sedan will also be uncontested.

An 8-speed automatic transmission and an all-wheel drive system work together with the engine.

In a similar technical performance, the premium sports sedan will accelerate to 100 km / h in just 3.8 seconds, and the maximum with which the car can move is 250 km / h.

On straight lines, the car as if rooted to the spot keeps a given trajectory, regardless of speed and traffic. Due to the presence of a sports differential, traction is redistributed in tight corners, thanks to which the executive sedan is screwed into the road without any hint that it may have difficulties in cornering.

In addition, the machine is additionally equipped with a fully steerable chassis. This increases the stability of the car while driving at high speed.

It is impossible to classify a luxury sedan as a type of car that has any off-road capabilities.

The high cost of the model does not allow testing it in off-road conditions. In addition, the manufacturer has equipped the car with a minimum ground clearance of 140 mm, which also does not allow relying on overcoming serious obstacles and difficulties.

Maintenance costs

The German auto industry has never been cheap to maintain. In this case, the premium executive-class sedan can be safely called expensive to maintain.

Regular maintenance, which should be carried out every 15 thousand kilometers traveled, depending on the amount of work performed, will cost the motorist 25-60 thousand rubles.

Dynamic capabilities and fuel consumption

It will not be possible to make any claims about the dynamics of the premium Audi S8 in 2021. Thanks to the installation of a powerful engine, acceleration to «hundreds» is achieved in 3.8 seconds.

Thus, the question of the need to perform any maneuvers and overtaking disappears by itself. There are no unsolvable problems for this model.

Given the sedan’s imposing size, this dynamic is admirable. Therefore, any option with the need to maneuver in city mode or on the highway will not create any serious difficulties for the Audi owner.

Considering such a serious powertrain installed under the hood of a premium sedan, fuel consumption is quite high enough.

Therefore, even the consumption declared by the manufacturer, which is 11.5 liters per 100 kilometers, can be called modest.


The appearance of the «charged» sedan is not much different from the classic Audi A8.

The front end has traditionally received a large hexagonal radiator grille, which visually merges with the air intake on the bumper, and a sloping, long enough bonnet.

On the side, there are also not many differences. The main ones include the installation of larger alloy wheel disks, as well as side mirrors, the bodies of which received silver lining.

The rear has a short boot lid that blends into a neat, minimally protruding spoiler. The lanterns merge into a single unit, thanks to the installation of an LED insert that unites them.

The main difference between the stern of the S8 and A8 is the presence of two built-in exhaust pipes at once.

In the interior of the executive sedan, everything looks expensive and sporty. The materials used in the finishing of the car are striking in their quality and gloss.

In addition, the interior received a «chip» that the German manufacturer uses for all of its models — three digital screens at once.

One of them is used as a monitor to display data from the virtual instrument panel. The other two are needed to control the built-in capabilities of the multimedia system, as well as adjust the climate control parameters and other services.

The central tunnel is represented by a stylish gearbox control selector, a compartment for wireless charging of gadgets and a powerful armrest.

The steering wheel is styled in Audi style. It received four spokes at once, two of which are equipped with buttons for adjusting the audio system, cruise control, etc.

The seats of the salon are distinguished by excellent comfort, quality of finishing materials, pronounced lateral support and a lot of adjustment options, which allows you to enjoy a trip even over long distances.


Direct rivals of the premium model include similar representatives of this segment: BMW 7-Series, Porsche Panamera, Lexus LS and Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
