The 2011 Audi A8 has been redesigned from the ground up. Audi’s flagship car features a lot of safety features and Audi’s legacy of ride comfort, performance and safety.

The LED lights in the front are good daylight running lights as well as being a beautiful element. The Xenon headlights provide as much or more light as a conventional bulb, but daylight balanced for less eye strain and they use half the power of conventional lights. Interior lighting can be controlled by zone in both brightness and color. Parking sensors and a rear-view camera make parking much easier. There’s an optional night vision display, similar to those offered by BMW and Mercedes Benz. A lane change warning is also available as an option.

The front and passenger doors offer power door close assist, making entry and exit easier. The trunk lid can be opened and closed at the touch of a button, but also the trunk opening height can be adjusted to user taste. There’s a full aluminum cage built around the passenger cabin for safety and rigidity while making the car lighter.

The Electronic Stability Controls work with Audi’s legendary Quattro drive and new enhancements to the rear differential to transfer the power from the direct-injection engine to all of the wheels as needed for the ultimate in control. The adaptive air suspension adjusts the ride for comfort and safety.

The fob for the remote, keyless entry allows you to unlock, lock, even start the car without ever removing the fob from a pocket or purse. The interior is well appointed and improved from the previous model, the latest Bose audio system provides plenty of power, and the navigation and controls are some of the newest available.

The Audi A8 is a great mix of comfortable ride and great technology for safety and performance.
