Features

Standard features abound in this year's Audi A8. Cars.com counts navigation, keyless ignition, automatic climate control, and electric sunshades on the list.

All versions also have leather, a 6-disc CD player, and and "powered everything," Automobile says. Options include heated seats, parking sensors and ventilated and massaging front seats.

The 2008 Audi A8 has enough high-tech gadgets and features for the most demanding driver.

Bluetooth is standard, and permits hands-free phone use. Voice commands can run the stereo as well as navigation, Forbes Auto says.

These many features can also be accessed with Audi's proprietary MMI--a series of buttons and controls mounted on the steering wheel with which the driver can operate the vehicle's numerous devices and controls easily and in greater safety, according to Edmunds. While this system looks intimidating to the uninitiated, Forbes Autos tells us that it's actually easier and more intuitive than the BMW iDrive system (albeit "more distracting than traditional knobs and buttons").

Other options include rear dual-zone climate controls, an awe-inspiring Bang & Olufsen sound system, obstacle-detection systems, a rearview camera, a solar-powered ventilation system, and a power rear sunshade. A Sport Package is also available on the 2008 Audi A8.
