HERNDON, Virginia — The 2017 Audi A8 L 3.0T luxury flagship sedan starts at $83,450, including a $950 destination charge, according to Audi of America.
The German automaker said the A8 will only be offered with a long wheelbase for the new model year. The carryover 2017 A8 L is expected to arrive soon at Audi dealerships.
The base price of the 2017 A8 L reflects a $1,025 increase over the previous model.
Audi's 2017 A8 L 4.0T Sport is priced at $92,450, including shipping, and the performance-oriented 2017 Audi S8 Plus starts at $116,850, including shipping.
Enhanced design packages are the key upgrades for the 2017 Audi A8 L.
The base model now comes standard with Sport exterior styling. The optional Black optic package on 3.0T and 4.0T models includes black exterior accents, darkened taillights and 20-inch five-double-spoke wheels with a titanium finish.
The 2017 S8 plus features new interior design choices, including black leather seats with Arras red stitching.
Edmunds says: The options narrow a bit for Audi A8 buyers, with the standard model deleted for the new model year and only single-trim variants on the 2017 A8 L long-wheelbase models.
