The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
Perky, nimble handling and frisky, refined performance is what separates the 2008 Audi A8 from the rest of the super-sedans. Controversially styled, the 2008 BMW 7-Series still performs like a smaller sedan and carries rear passengers with ease.
