2021 Audi A8 Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 8.6

Though it isn't as flashy as some rivals, the 2021 Audi A8 has a refined cabin with spacious, comfortable seating. It also features user-friendly technology, but the trunk is tiny for the class.

  • "The A8 has a quiet and opulent cabin, with an understated design and abundant technologies. Materials are top-notch, and every switch or control operates with a precisely engineered feel." -- Autotrader
  • "Fine materials are in abundance, and you can order up extended leather and a small forest's worth of wood inlays. But much like the A8's exterior, the interior ambience is sober and not as lavish as that of the Mercedes S-class." -- Car and Driver
  • "The seats, door panels, and dash use gorgeous, well-crafted materials in beautiful color combinations, and the cabin is wonderfully quiet. The interior is clean and uncluttered, yet filled with useful technology." -- Kelley Blue Book

Cargo

With just 12.5 cubic feet of space, the Audi A8's trunk is the smallest in the super luxury car class. The plug-in-hybrid A8 has only 10.4 cubic feet of space. A power trunk lid is standard.

  • "Trunk capacity is modest for a big luxury sedan." -- Car and Driver
  • "The trunk space measures 12.5 cu ft, which is less than impressive. The 7 Series comes with 14.8 cu ft, the S-Class has 16.3 and the Lexus LS 500 offers 17 cubic feet. The 60 TSFI (sic) e only has 10.4 cubic feet because of the extra plug-in hybrid hardware." -- Autotrader (2020)

Seating

The Audi A8 seats five people in its standard configuration, and an optional rear-seat package drops capacity to four. The front seats are wide and comfortable, while the second row offers ample head- and legroom.

Standard features include Valetta leather upholstery, 22-way power-adjustable front seats, heated and ventilated front seats, power rear-window sunshades, power soft-closing doors, and a power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel. Options include a heated steering wheel, front-seat memory and massaging functions, heated front-seat armrests, Valcona leather upholstery, an Alcantara headliner, and massaging front sport seats.

The second row can be upgraded with power-adjustable outboard seats; heated, ventilated, and massaging outboard seats; rear reading lights; rear heated armrests; front passenger seat remote control; folding tables; footrests; and a heated, massaging footrest for the passenger-side seat.

For installing child safety seats, there are two complete sets of LATCH connectors for the rear outboard seats. The lower anchors are set deeply in the seats and can be hard to access because the leather upholstery is stiff.

  • "Impressive passenger space is an A8 hallmark, and its long wheelbase ensures that rear-seat passengers are well accommodated." -- Car and Driver
  • "Passenger space is in abundant supply." -- Autotrader
  • "The interior of the 2021 Audi A8 is a serene place where folks can escape the noise and stress of the outside world." -- Kelley Blue Book

Interior Features

The Audi A8's dual touch-screen infotainment system requires a bit of a learning curve. Past that, it proves to be user-friendly, and the interface is high-tech and responsive. Standard features include Amazon Alexa, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, wireless device charging, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, navigation, voice recognition, two USB ports, a 17-speaker Bang & Olufsen stereo, Bluetooth, satellite radio, and HD Radio.

The A8 also comes standard with a panoramic sunroof, proximity keyless entry, quad-zone automatic climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a universal garage door opener.

Standard driver assistance features include forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, a surround-view parking camera system, lane departure warning, automatic high-beam headlights, a rearview camera, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and front and rear parking sensors.

Optional features include multicolor ambient interior lighting, a rear-seat dual-screen entertainment system, a DVD player, two rear USB ports, and a 23-speaker Bang & Olufsen stereo. Available active safety technology includes a head-up display, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, vehicle exit assist, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, traffic sign recognition, night vision assist, and intersection assist.

  • "There's a lone volume knob for the audio system, since most functions are controlled through the touchscreens. It can be overwhelming initially, but the system is quick to respond and highly configurable, allowing owners to choose their own dedicated buttons on the lower screen while offering permanent buttons for navigation, weather, telephone functions, and radio on the left side of the upper screen." -- Car and Driver
  • "From this luxury sedan’s driver’s seat, large touchscreen panels control everything from the driver-assist systems to the climate controls to the audio and infotainment systems. The dual-screen setup may seem intimidating at first, but with use, it becomes second nature." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "In the tidy yet sumptuous cabin, a dual-touchscreen infotainment system accepts smartphonelike gestures, handwritten inputs or voice commands using natural speech." -- Autotrader (2020)
