2012 Audi A8L: Spotting The Differences
February 27, 2012
"Hey Brent! Nice Audi A ... umm ...."
This was my friend. I had gone to visit him at his office on Saturday with the A8. He had seen me pull up from his window.
"A8L," I told him. "It's pretty fancy-pants."
My friend knows cars. So his reaction is similar to the point James made in a previous post about the A8's conservative styling and how it doesn't look much different from A4 in back.
For me, I'd agree the styling distinction between Audi's sedans is subtle. The rear, in particular, it's hard to tell what you're looking at. But at a glance it's hard to tell the latest BMW 5 Series from the 7 Series, too, so Audi's hardly alone.
