Audi S8 2022- Honest Review of the Super Sedan

If you’re looking to purchase this sleek and sporty sedan, we’ve got your back. Our blog uncovers a complete candid review of this model.

Pros

Fast, comfortable, and luxurious. It has great handling, and even though it’s a sedan, it can be driven like a sports car.

Cons

High price tag. Furthermore, the engine has the ability to speed up quickly with a power loss at higher speeds.

Conclusion

Great acceleration, smooth handling and spacious interior, makes the 2022 Audi S8 a true luxury sedan. 

Price

The price tag is astronomical. With a price starting as high as a whooping 570,885 AED, this car isn’t exactly affordable for most people.

If you’re in the market for a luxury car, this shouldn’t be a problem for you—but if you’re looking for something more affordable and practical, this may not be your best bet.


Engine 

The 2022 Audi S8 engine has a V10 engine that is 5.2-liters and has 435 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque. The engine also features a start-stop system which helps reduce emissions by shutting down the engine when it isn’t needed during stop-and-go traffic or when waiting at lights.

Although, ​​If there’s one thing that could be improved on this car in terms of engine, it would be the fuel efficiency—they say it gets around 20 mpg (8.5 km/L) but it hasn’t given any more than 12 or 13 mpg (5.53 km/L) combined because it has so much power under the hood which means it uses more fuel than other models in its class.


Performance

In just 3.8 seconds at 0-60 km/hr, it delivers a maximum speed of 155 mph (249.448 km/hr). That’s impressive even by today’s standards!

Its eight-speed automatic transmission helps make sure you get there as quickly as possible, too, with shifts happening at lightning speed thanks to its dual clutch design.

Despite all this, the car has faced some criticism over its performance. According to some critics, it lacks power compared to other cars within its class because it uses a 2.9-liter twin turbo V8 engine instead of a larger V10 or V12 engine that could produce more horsepower and torque than what it currently produces (500 hp/479 lb ft). This has led many people to believe that this is one major drawback for this car.


Interior 

You’ll love how spacious this vehicle feels on the inside, from all angles; it’s like sitting in a cocoon of luxury! 

The Audi S8 interior (2022) features leather seats with diamond stitching on them, as well as carbon fiber trim that gives it an expensive feel without being too flashy about it (because let’s face it: not everyone wants their luxury car to be seen).

Furthermore, the seats are ergonomically designed to offer the best support for your back and neck. 

The cabin is spacious and you will have ample legroom for passengers. The dashboard is made from anodized aluminum which gives it a nice feel when you run your hands over it. 

This material also helps to reduce glare from sunlight so that you can take advantage of all the features available inside this vehicle. 

Its automatic door shutting system ensures that there’s no chance of forgetting to close them after getting out of your car—even if you step on a banana peel while exiting :p

Exterior

Outside, the 2022 Audi S8 looks sleek and sporty thanks to its angular headlights, slim tail lights, large wheels wrapped in low-profile tires – all while still maintaining its classic look with chrome accents throughout the bodywork so it doesn’t feel too futuristic compared to other cars like it. 

It also has an automatic cargo space that opens with a push of a button so you can load up your groceries without having to worry about keeping them from rolling around in the trunk!

One of the most glaring drawbacks of the Audi S8 2022 however is its lack of a trunk. While it can be argued that this isn’t necessarily true—the back seats can fold down, so you can technically store things there—it’s clear that Audi didn’t design this car with any intention of it being used as a grocery-getter or hauler of any kind. This is because if you’re going somewhere where you need more than one bag per person then you might run into some issues. 

And if you’re over 6 feet tall, good luck getting into the backseat. :p

Wheels 

Audi S8 suspension is to die for! This suspension is capable of adjusting to the driver’s needs and driving style, as well as to the road conditions. The system uses sensors on the body and 21 inch wheels of the audi S8 to measure various aspects such as bumps and potholes, which will be used to adjust the shocks accordingly. 

This model also has a backside tires turn feature which allows for better handling during turns and maneuvers, making it easier for you to take U-turns and get through tight spaces in traffic with ease!

Safety

The 2022 Audi S8 has many safety features that help protect you from any crashes or mishaps while driving. Some of these things include:

  • Adaptive cruise control that allows you to set your speed and distance from the car in front of you.
  • Collision avoidance system which will alert you if there is another car in front of you or if there is something on the road ahead
  • There are also sensors installed around each wheel that detect when a tire is flat or low on air pressure in order to automatically activate an alert on your dashboard display screen so you can get it fixed before it causes any damage!

Some downsides though is that although it comes with all-wheel drive technology built into its design, it does not offer any additional safety features beyond those offered by other models in its class like automatic braking systems or blind spot alerts so if you need these kind of features then this might not be the right car for you.

The Audi S8 2022 also has poor safety features. This model did not have airbags installed until 2011 and still does not include them as standard equipment in all models sold today (though they are included in some).


Entertainment 

The entertainment system comes with a 6-inch touch screen display that allows you access to all of your favorite apps like Google Maps and Spotify among others.

The infotainment system also comes with a Bang & Olufsen sound system that delivers incredible audio quality through eight speakers located around the cabin area including two subwoofers under those seats!

Beside that, the screen may be too small for some people’s tastes. At only 10 inches, it’s smaller than most other screens on the market today. If you are looking for a larger screen, this may not be the right model for you.

Furthermore, the system does not come with a built-in navigation system so if this is important to you then this may not be an ideal choice either.


Comparison:
Audi A8 vs Audi S8

The Audi S8 is a super sedan that is a few steps above the A8.

The S8 builds off of the A8’s platform to create a sportier version that’s faster and more powerful than its sibling. It has the same engine as the A8 but with more horsepower reaching 60 mph (96.5606 km/hr) in 3.6 seconds (which is quicker than most cars on the road today). 

And while it also has all-wheel drive like its brother, the S8 one gets better traction thanks to an active rear differential that helps maximize grip when cornering at high speeds—so you can feel confident driving around corners without worrying about losing control over your car!

The interior of the S8 looks like that of any other Audi, but there are some differences. The seats are comfortable and supportive, but they are not as plush as those found in other luxury sedans such as the A8. This makes the Audi S8 feel sportier than other cars in this class.

Overall, the Audi S8 is one of the best looking super sedans on the market today because it combines style with performance without sacrificing comfort or utility.


Pensées Finales

It’s clear that Audi has put a lot of thought into making this car as enjoyable as possible for everyone who drives it—and we’re excited about what else they have planned for future models!

Although, there isn’t much that can be done in terms of the other drawbacks about the 2022 Audi S8, the price issue can be resolved by opting to rent instead of buying this beauty.
