New innov8tions

Despite being superseded soon, the current A8 continues to possess one of the best-built cabins of any mass-produced car. Everything feels exceptionally expensive and solid and all the switchgear feels tactile to the touch so there's plenty the new model's cabin to live up to or even surpass the previous model in this area.

To put it simply, there's little doubt that the new A8 has the best cabin in the class. It feels both expensive and special in here thanks to choice materials and surfaces that not only look good but also are tactile and soft to the touch. The seats look especially good thanks to the patterns for the perforations and even the light coloured wood trim manages to look convincing. Audi even took the trouble of designing new column stalks with gloss black inserts. The dashboard and even the steering boss are lined with leather for an even more expensive feel. Ambient lighting by LED strips further enhance the A8's cabin atmosphere - the colour of these lights can even be changed to suit individual tastes.

The new MMI system with the pioneering MMI touch navigation system is one impressive bit of kit. The whole system is more intuitive to use thanks to more logical menus and graphics on the LCD screen that pops gracefully out of the dashboard when the car is started. MMI touch navigation comes with a touch pad like on a laptop that you can use to input destinations and addresses into the navigation system by ‘writing' alphabets onto it. Audi says it can recognize the worse of handwritings and I can confirm that it certainly can after being able to recognize my rather terrible handwriting. The touchpad is a really impressive feature and is a joy to use and it can even double up as radio preset buttons when not used in navigation mode.

The navigation system also works with search engine Google so you can Google search a destination on the MMI and input it as a destination in the sat nav system. In addition, the sat nav is closely networked with the car's assistance systems for added safety.

Optional features include massage seats with various pre-programmed massage functions, the superb B & O sound system with those UFO looking tweeters that pop out of the dashboard and so on.

The standard wheelbase models we drove offered just enough room at the rear but Singapore bound cars will most likely be long wheelbase variants for towkays to lounge and stretch their legs in at the back.Overall refinement is pretty good - the cabin is well insulated from both road and wind noise so it's a quiet place to be in even at speed.
