The 2018 World Car Awards ceremony took place recently at the ongoing New York Auto Show and it’s the latest-gen Audi A8 that has managed to bag the World Luxury Car Of The Year award for 2018.
Eighty-two jury members from 24 countries assessed the passenger comfort and safety as well as environment aspects, performance, market relevance and price-performance ratio. The new A8 scored higher than the two competitors in the final elimination round.
The latest-gen A8 is being built at the Neckarsulm facility and has been available in the UK since December 2017. In addition to its luxurious cabin and high quality materials, its highlights include equipment like the HD Matrix LED headlights with Audi laser light, dynamic all-wheel steering and the rear seat package with foot massage. When launched here in India, the new A8 will be seen competing against the BMW 7 Series and the recently launched 2018 Mercedes S Class.
