The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
9.0
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The Audi A8 gains standard LED headlamps, a more powerful twin-turbo V-8, and a more efficient diesel engine for 2015. You can add a welcome dose of fun to the LS chassis with the F-Sport trim, but Lexus' flagship remains a big, comfortable sedan at its core.
