The Tech News and Media Gurus at The Verge and We Agree: the 2018 Audi A8 is a Unique Drive

The expert even goes as far as to call the new Audi A8 a model of "best-in-class tech" with an eye to the "next level in self-driving" to compete with segment powerhouses like the Tesla Model S, its BMW 7-Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class siblings, Jaguar XJ, Lexus LS, and the Cadillac CT6. Our Burlingame, CA Audi dealer can certainly see what makes the luxury sedan stand apart from the rest.

The Verge singles out, among other elements, a "forward-looking cockpit," with ease of access and tech that's smoother, faster, and better equipped than its predecessors, complete with NVIDIA K1 processing and LTE Advanced data transfer to put the Four Rings infotainment system at the forefront of the industry. We love the sedan's capabilities, too, for its inclusion of MMI® Navigation plus with voice control standard, the latter of which allows four-zone climate control changes, instrument display operation, vehicle diagnostic access, and mobile phone, CD player, and radio adjustment with a spoken command.

Of course, this isn't to mention the innovative available Audi Connect® system, which integrates Google Earth and weather and traffic metrics with in-vehicle 4G LTE connectivity, making remaining in touch and up to date easier than ever. Nor is it to call attention to the optional MMI® touch system with handwriting-recognition technology, with which you can manually write data, toggle through maps with a swipe, and more.

The 2018 Audi A8 is highly intelligent, too – "as close to a self-driving car as you can get," says The Verge. That's above and beyond its standard advanced quattro® all-wheel drive technology and terrain-commanding variable torque split capability. More than 40 assistance systems come together to imbue your drive with unrivaled peace of mind. Audi pre sense® plus and Audi side assist with Audi pre sense® rear run the gamut from blind spot monitoring and auto braking to initiating preventative cabin measures in advance of an accident and more. Factor in Audi adaptive cruise control with stop & go for safe distancing, and active lane assist to remain on course. Even a parking system plus shows Audi A8 to have an eye in the sky on your drive-time peace of mind -- front and rear acoustic sensors monitor your surroundings, while a top view camera provides an overhead view of your environment.

There's even more than meets the eye in a new 2018 Audi A8. You're welcome to see for yourself what the experts are talking about, right here at 1010 Cadillac Way. Take the short, scenic ride from San Mateo along San Francisco Bay to visit us here at Audi Burlingame for a test drive today!
