Audi A8 (2003–2010)

Last updated 27 June 2018

Quiet cruiser, with a classy, spacious cabin and good line-up of engines. 3.0 TDI quattro is very impressive. Excellent security rating.

Introduction

How can I say this? Okay, sorry Audi, I'm a Mercedes man. I'm more at home in a Mercedes E Class or S Class than any other car. I was especially at home in the LHD only Mercedes S500 4-Matic.

So the new Audi A8 Quattro was in trouble from the start.

And then, just to compound the misery, we got landed with a duff car. The choice was 4.2 or 3.7, so naturally we plumped for the 4.2, loaded our luggage and headed out into the countryside.

Brief note to Mercedes here, the boot of the Audi A8 holds a LOT of luggage. It appears to be about 50% bigger then the S Class rear compartment.
