2012 Audi A8 Long Term Road Test

2012 Audi A8L: Practical Trunk Space

March 15, 2012


The A8's trunk has it all: tie downs, pockets with restraint nets, grocery bag hooks, a 12-volt power point and an elastic cargo net. Also, as you'd expect in a massive sedan like this, it's huge. And flexible.


The pocket seen here -- this time with its restraint net pulled down -- is on the driver's side. There's another just like it on the passenger side. The cargo net stretches horizontally between four tie downs at the corners of the trunk rather than holding cargo vertically like the Camry's cargo net. I prefer this design which pins cargo to the trunk floor rather than letting it flop around in the open space at the rear of the trunk.

There are two of these bag hooks under the rear decklid.
