Interiors and Special Features:

Step inside Audi's 2016 A8's 5-passenger cabin and you might think you're in a private jet. Immediately noticeable is a gear selector reminiscent of an airplane's throttle lever. Above are two tiers of knobs, buttons and a touch pad to control climate, audio and navigation functions. All are mostly simple to operate. The A8's cabin boasts the requisite leather and wood expected in a car of this caliber, and attention to detail borders on obsessive. The front seats fit a variety of bodies, and rear-seat legroom is impressive on the long-wheelbase models, which also offer a pair of seats with massaging function.

Safety features:

It's also fitted and programmed with electronic systems beyond the usual stability control, all in the name of preventative safety. The brakes clamp down when the car senses an impact is imminent, and the seatbelts tighten. Then there's the standard all-wheel drive--one of the earliest passive-safety measures we can name. On the technology front, the A8 comes with standard parking sensors, but shockingly, omits the rearview camera on the A8 3.0T unless you spend $3,000 for an option package. In the latter category Audi's executive sedan offers adaptive cruise control, lane-departure mitigation, and a night-vision assistant with pedestrian detection.
