New Audi - The Audi A8

Car companies face the challenge year in and year out to redesign their vehicles and make improvements that consumers are going to appreciate. With the New Audi A8, this car company has risen to the challenge. The new A8 not only has a new body design with lighter materials, but it also has added technology to the interior. As with all models produced by Audi, this car has excellent handling, an eye catching style and provides one of the most luxurious rides out on the road.

The New Audi A8 builds on the previous designs of using aluminum on the body and the frame. This makes the car lighter on the road, and also adds styling to the body. With the new model, this styling is going to be highlighted which is something all Audi fans will appreciate. The A8 will also keep the Quattro all wheel drive system, but for those interested, there will be a front wheel drive model available as well. This front wheel drive system does provide more fuel efficiency which many car owners are looking for these days.

The technology in the interior of the New Audi A8 has kept some of the same offerings from past years, but a few things have been upgraded. The very popular MMI system has had a few additional features put with it. Drivers can now search for points of interest with Google and have point by point directions given directly through the navigation screen. Google Earth is also now integrated into the system to aid drivers with their navigation. As always, a driver's mobile phone can be integrated with the technology system as well.

Along with all of the new style and technological gadgets, the New Audi A8 also has a strong focus on safety. Since Audi has a tradition of building some of the safest vehicles on the road, this aspect of the cars often gets taken for granted. One new feature with the A8 is the heads up display that utilizes pedestrian detection software that will alert the driver if there is anything in the path of the vehicle that might be unseen or tough to pick out. Combined with the Xenon powered headlights, this new safety feature makes the New Audi A8 an excellent choice.
