The latest 2019 A8 follows Audi's new naming convention, as hybrids and electric cars are coming to the fore rather than expressing the power by the engine capacity, the brand is using set numbers with the '50' replacing the old '3.0 TDI' representing the fact that the power is between 278 and 304 horsepower, and in this case the diesel engine is generating 286 bhp, enough for a 0-60 time of under 6 seconds and a top speed of 155 mph. fuel economy is quoted as 50 mph on the official EU combined figures but is more likely to by late 30's to early 40's in real life. The new A8 50 TDI is available either in the standard or long wheelbase formats, (the long wheelbase represented by the letter L in the model description). Quattro 4 wheel drive is standard, as is a new 48V electrical system that gives the car a mild hybrid status, which allows for engine off coasting and longer stop-start capabilities. Inside the car is beautifully put together with all of the luxuries and safety systems you'd ever expect and to quote Autocar magazine "your first impression is of a car built to outlast civilisation itself".
