Audi has launched the A8 L in India at a starting price of Rs 1.56 crore ex-showroom. A8 L is the long-wheelbase version of the A8, featuring a 48-volt mild-hybrid technology to support the 3.0-litre V6 turbo-petrol under the hood. However, the petrol motor alone produces a power output of 340PS and 500Nm of torque, with the power being transferred to the wheels by an 8-speed automatic transmission. With the mild-hybrid technology, the car can cruise between speeds of 55-160 kmph for 40 seconds without the engine turned on.

With a broad single-frame grille and a flowing side design upfront, the A8 L gets a full-length light strip at the rear, earlier seen in the Q8. The A8 L measures 5.3 meters in length, 1.95 meters widthwise, and 1.49 meters in height. To compensate for the longer wheelbase, Audi has included all-wheel steering to the A8 L, reducing the turning radius of the sedan significantly.

Inside the cabin, the A8 L hosts a total of 5 touchscreens, massaging seats, in-car entertainment with ambient lighting and video calling facility using the in-built entertainment screens. The dashboard of the luxury sedan features a 10.1-inch touchscreen with MMI touch response, below which is a 8.6-inch curved display for the climate control. The instrument cluster also gets Audi's "Virtual Cockpit" technology with a heads-up display and multifunction steering wheel.

In terms of safety, the A8 L comes with 8 airbags as standard with two optional airbags, ABS with EBD, lane assist warning and a 360-degree camera that provides a birds-eye view of the car.

The A8 L will rival with the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, BMW 7-Series and the Jaguar XJ L, and will come as a completely built unit in Indian markets.
