2021 Audi A8 vs. Its Competition

2021 Audi A8
Kirk Bell Kirk Bell Senior Editor

Full-size luxury sedans push the automotive envelope and the A8 is no exception.

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class sets the pace for luxury and comfort, and it offers a range of models and body styles that make it more diverse.

The BMW 7-Series delivers sportier dynamics to go with its modern and luxurious cabin.

At the other end of the spectrum is the Lexus LS that boasts a more adventurous design and a softer demeanor.

The Lincoln Continental isn’t as sophisticated as its rivals, but it’s smooth and stylish.

The Genesis G90 stands out as a slick and comfortable choice that costs less.
