2012 Audi A8L: A Little Extra in Back

July 10, 2012

So this what you get in a six figure luxury sedan. That's right, wood trim on the seat back.

A nice touch? Or simply out of place? I'm not sure. I noticed it while sitting in the back seat admiring the furnishings and thought it looked odd at first. I mean, why do you need trim on the back of the front seat? 

Of course, you don't, but Audi figured it classed things up a bit. I can't think of another car that has this, but I checked the Rolls-Royce Phantom and noted that it doesn't include any such trim. Neither does the Mercedes S600, although its fold out trays are made of wood.
