LONGER THAN the standard A8 full-size sedan’s dimensions and wheelbase by 13 cm, the new Audi A8 L 3.0 TFSI MHEV provides more space for rear passengers.

It banners active suspension that helps the car attain the comfort of a chauffeur-driven limousine, or the firm handling of a sports car. Audi said the “system is fully dynamic, relying on electromechanical actuators to lift or force down each of the vehicle’s wheels individually to actively manage ride height in every situation. Using a camera located at the front of the car, the system identifies uneven surfaces before these are reached, and predictively regulates the active suspension.”

This executive vehicle is featured in the ongoing “Audi Factory Warehouse Sale 2.0” promo, which extends discounts as much as P1 million on select 2020 Audi models.

The Audi A8 L features a rear-seat entertainment system comprised of two Audi tablets and a rear seat remote. Connectivity to any platform is assured by Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Under the hood is a 3.0-liter, turbocharged V6 gasoline engine generating 335hp and 500Nm. Supplementing it is a mild-hybrid system with a belt alternator starter (BAS) and a lithium-ion battery with 10Ah electrical capacity. Through this, A8 L can coast at speeds between 55 kilometer per hour (kph) and 160kph with the engine switched off (thereby producing zero emissions for up to 40 seconds). Upon the application of throttle input, the BAS quickly and smoothly restart the engine.

At the heart of it all is a 48-volt system that functions as the main vehicle electrical system, and offers a high recuperation power of up to 12kW plus start-stop operation from 22kph, thereby reducing fuel consumption. Paired to the new Audi A8 L’s engine is a quick eight-speed tiptronic transmission. Audi’s quattro permanent all-wheel drive system with self-locking center differential, as well as 20-inch Audi Sport alloy wheels, come standard.
