TrueDelta Reviews the Seat Room and Comfort of the 2013 Audi A8 / S8

2013 Audi A8 / S8 Seat Room and Comfort: Cons
YearComment
The A8's seats can be adjusted just about every way its possible to adjust a seat. While they do provide proper support, they're firm and don't mold themselves to the human form, at least not mine. They are very good seats, but those in the Jaguar are better and those in the BMW are best of all, both more supportive and more luxurious. see full Audi A8 / S8 review

TrueDelta Reviews the Powertrain of the 2013 Audi A8 / S8

2013 Audi A8 / S8 Powertrain: Pros
YearComment
2013 The new (to the A8) boosted six might be down nearly 40 peak horsepower, but it's at least as strong as the displaced V8 at lower rpm (325 lb-ft at 2,900 rpm vs. 328 lb-ft at 3,500 rpm) and has no trouble at all effortlessly accelerating the 4,400-pound car. Power comes on in a smooth, even surge. While this drama-free delivery seems a bit boring in the Audi S4 compact high-performance sedan, it's a perfect match for the A8. The BMW's engine is less powerful on paper, but performs about equally well in practice. Both cars can get to 60 mph in about six seconds. Partly because of more thorough insulation, there's less sensation of acceleration in the BMW. You feel a strong shove in the Audi. In the BMW, you glance at the speedometer and find that you've already reached your target speed, and then some. Back to the A8, an eight-speed ZF automatic closely related to those in both the BMW and the Jaguar deals up the ideal ratio for any situation. You can manually shift it, but there's little need to. As in the BMW, the shifter is a monostatic, electronic type (think computer joystick), but in the Audi the conventional P-R-N-D shift order is retained, so reverse can be harder to select. see full Audi A8 / S8 review
