Expert Quotes:

Ample room on firm, wide seats...limousine-like legroom
ConsumerGuide

Fit and finish throughout are superb
Edmunds

affords ample comfort for both the front and rear seats
Forbes Autos

The Audi A8 offers a superior level of comfort and room for the daily commute as well as the long road trip. As Automobile.com observes, “there is plenty of wood and leather, the adjustable driver's seat is comfortable, and the materials and fit and finish are first-rate.”

Cars.com reports that the interior of the 2008 Audi A8 is nothing short of luxurious, including natural wood trim and genuine leather upholstery. Seat options include massage, heating, and even ventilation. Edmunds calls the interior "superb...with generous amounts of wood, Alcantara (suede) and aluminum accents."

Audi told Car and Driver that the 2008 Audi A8 would be the "quietest car in its class"--and ConsumerGuideAuto checks back with confirmation, but a touch of criticism. The A8's 19-inch tires are "most always whisper quiet," they say, but "rumble and whine a bit on coarse pavement."

Few reviewers commented on the actual room in the 2008 Audi A8, but TheCarConnection.com spent a few hundred miles in various A8 Audi sedans, and found that it has some of the best front seats in any vehicle at any price; they're large and not only firm enough to hold you in place on a twisty road but also superbly comfortable for long-haul driving. In addition, the rear doors are 5 inches longer, making life easier for second-row passengers. The standard-wheelbase model has enough backseat space for average-size adults, but the extended-length L model has almost limousine-like legroom that's good for even the lankiest passengers.

Conclusion

There are more luxurious and more comfortable cars on the market than the 2008 Audi A8--but not many, and not by much.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
