Review of the 2003 Audi A8

  • Audi's flagship isn't a top performer in the super-luxury sedan segment, but its advanced space frame design and all-wheel drive make it an interesting alternative. Consider waiting for the 2004 redesign.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    All-wheel-drive security, sophisticated engine and structural design, highly detailed interior, spacious trunk, costs less than its German competitors.

  • Cons

    Overly soft suspension, small LCD screen paired with outdated CD-based nav system, plain styling.

  • What's New for 2003

    A redesigned A8 is coming for the 2004 model year, so 2003 changes are minimal. Premium packages for both the A8 and A8 L now include the navigation system, parking assist system, tire pressure monitoring system and 17-inch wheels with 225/55R17 all-season tires. In addition, this year only the A8 L will be eligible for the optional 18-inch wheels and 245/45R18 performance tires.

Vehicle: 2003 Audi A8 quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 5A)

The A8 has provided me thus far with remarkable agility and comfort for a high class sedan. It has given me a unique alternative to its brethren at Mercedes Benz and BMW, a package that offers indivudual styling, the confidence of quattro, and a very stylish and yet conservative-minded atmosphere in the cabin.
