Audi unveiled their flag ship sedan, the A8, at an event in Barcelona. The fourth generation sedan was showcased as the prologue concept in the 2016 Delhi Auto Expo and the car which debuted in Barcelona stays loyal to its concept. The 2019 Audi A8 carries a long features list and to give you an idea of what the new luxo-barge has to offer, here are five highlights of this luxury sedan.

The new design language

The Audi lineage is very apparent on the exterior and the new car is quite low slung in appearance. The front façade, with its large trapezoidal grille and sleek full LED matric headlamps makes it evident that this limo is from the Audi family. The interior boasts of a touchscreen centre console housed in a wraparound dashboard design.

Audi AI Active suspension

The Audi AI active suspension, depending on the driver’s requirements and the driving condition, is capable of raising or lowering each wheel separately with electric actuators. In combination with pre sense 360°, the car is raised with lighting speed if there is a forthcoming lateral collision and reduces the potential consequences of the mishap for all occupants.

Dynamic all-wheel steering

The steering ratio for the front wheels varies as a function of speed; the rear wheels are turned in-or-against the direction of steering depending on the speed of the car.

Traffic Jam Pilot

Audi’s level three autonomous driving system manages starting, accelerating, steering and braking. The driver can take their hands off the steering wheel and as soon as the system reaches its limits, it calls on the driver to resume control of the task of driving.

Remote Parking Pilot

The Audi AI remote parking pilot and the Audi AI remote garage pilot autonomously steer the A8 into and out of a parking space or a garage, while the manoeuvre is monitored by the driver. To monitor the parking manoeuvre, the driver should hold the Audi AI button pressed to watch a live display from the car’s 360 degree cameras on their device, equipped with the myAudi app.
