The interior lighting pack provides a cozy ambience inside the cabin.

Ride and Handling

Regardless of what type of engine you choose, you will definitely be impressed by the balanced ride and handling of Audi A8, ensured by its advanced suspension system. Adding to the comfort is the driver adjustable air suspension, which ensures a comfortable ride without any kind of body roll over bumps and potholes on uneven Indian roads.
