Comparable Models

As Audi’s flagship luxury sedan, the A8 is a luxury behemoth and has had unwavering quality in its production since its inception. Competition is forged from some of the best offerings from other luxury brands, the BMW 7 Series and Genisis G90 are notable models that help push innovation forward in the segment. Looking first at the 7-Series, the BMW sports a more relaxed engine than the A8, with a 320 hp turbocharged inline-6 under the hood. Though undeniably comfortable and classy, the current generation 7-Series is lacking some of the sporty swagger that helped make it such a big nameplate. Exploring the unproven Genesis G90 can be tantalizing, and though the low pricetag can be intriguing, the interior lacks the luxury oomph of its German competitors, feeling at times very much like a Hyundai. We’d elect to go with the A8, with its proven track record, absurdly consistent performance, and top-tier technology, it feels like an obvious choice among enthusiasts. Drivers looking for a slightly smaller option can also elect to explore the impressive Audi A7, with its full suite of Audi technology and equally engaging drive.
