BMW and Mercedes have already introduced their new contenders for the luxury segment, the 7-series and the S-class. But Audi does not seem to be in a hurry! The work is slowly underway for the new generation of Audi A8 but it should be ready for the IAA Motor Show in September 2009.
The A8 has always been considered as a conservative design, a bit too ordinary for a fine luxury saloon. Although the new model will be facelifted but it’s not likely to change its attitude much. However, its winning card is not styling, but the number of new technologies you will get with it and the superb feel of quality you can only experience in an Audi A8, Some say it’ll be ‘The best Audi of all times!’ Of course to cope with the competition they have to be very up to date, so expect features like night vision system, radar-guided cruise control and Audi’s new start/stop system.
