Traditional elegance in the A8’s superbly finished interior, melds seamlessly with the latest technology to create the perfect synergy of comfort and functionality. Intuitive in operation, the A8 employs touch screens to control a vast array of vehicle functions. The haptic and acoustic feedback gives this state-of-the-art technology a very ‘real’ feel, while reducing the number of buttons and controls required in the cabin. Many functions can be controlled via the latest speech recognition technology, recognising natural dialogues rather than relying on a databank of accepted terms.
A large number of settings are stored in your personal profile in the car, such as ergonomic, infotainment or suspension settings. These include the seat position, the position of the steering column and the position of the mirrors. Up to seven personal profiles can be created in the car, and the profile used most recently is assigned to the vehicle key upon getting out of and locking the car. When unlocking the A8, a personalised greeting appears in the Audi virtual cockpit and the settings are then loaded for the personal profile assigned to the vehicle key.
The optional air quality package provides a subtle, pleasant fragrance that infuses the A8’s interior at the push of a button. Two different fragrances are available, created especially for the A8, with four different intensities to suit your personal preference. Outside air is filtered and effectively cleaned via ionisation which reduces harmful particles and germs to improve the air quality in the interior.
