Handles like a sedan that is significantly smaller.
It is not easy to find fault with Audi's flagship sedan. It offers stunning styling, an incomparable cabin, and phenomenal performance. It essentially sets the bar extremely high for other full size luxury sedans to try to compete with. Still, you cannot please everyone, so there are a few complaints worth mentioning.
Trunk space is the biggest disappointment. It gives you enough room to take two couples on a road trip, but only gives you a 13.2-cubic-foot trunk, which is hardly large enough for luggage.
Adding on packages quickly skyrockets the price of A8 L.
Although most will appreciate the finest quality leather that Audi blankets its seats in, there are some buyers who simply prefer cloth. Unfortunately, this sedan doesn't offer a cloth option.
