Behold the 2017 Audi S8 in Edmonton
It has a ton of kick and a beautiful, quiet, spacious cabin. This isn’t merely the jack of all trades; it’s the master of all and the ultimate luxury performance sedan. Few manufacturers have been able to accomplish anything like this, but with the S8, Audi sure has.
For 2017, the Audi S8 is available in its Plus model which is about as sporty as a sedan can get. This is one of the sportiest and most fun to drive vehicles on the market, and it’s being hailed by reviewers across the globe. Let’s take a look at what makes this Audi so special.
Your new 2017 Audi S8’s twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 pulls way ahead of the competition with a whopping 605 horsepower and 517 pound-feet of torque. And if you’re in the mood to just floor it, you’ll get a short burst of 36 extra pound-feet of torque to add to the oomph. You’ll enjoy controlling all this power through the eight-speed transmission, offering plenty of freedom on the road and sending power to all fours wheels in Audi’s renowned Quattro all-wheel-drive system.
And there are still more reasons why the Audi S8 stands out from the competition. For example, the adjustable suspension with air springs and adaptive dampers, special sport steering calibration and a torque-vectoring rear differential are all there so your S8 can keep its momentum up through twists and turns on the road. But if you’re in the mood for comfort over performance, you can adjust the system response to make is more subtle.
Safety & Convenience
Audi Drive Select is a feature we’re sure you’ll love, offering selectable drive modes with their own steering, suspension, throttle and transmission calibrations for the most customizable drive you’ll ever get out of a performance machine. You’ll also appreciate having LED exterior lighting all around your vehicle, including the headlights, fog lights, taillights and turn signals, enhancing your presence on the road and making you much more visible at night. The headlights and high-beam control are automatic for added convenience.
You’re also looking at a slew of additional standard features like a surround-view parking camera system with parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring, collision mitigation, and more.
Interior & Tech
When you come into Southgate Audi for a test drive and step inside the Audi S8, you’ll notice the beautifully appointed interior with diamond-stitched leather upholstery. We’ll suggest you take your time with the 22-way power-adjustable multicontour front seats and perhaps even try out the massage feature.
You’ll love the audio and nav system with the S8. Audi has always been praised for its easy to use infotainment system, and this one features voice recognition and handwriting-recognition technology. Our Sales staff will also enjoy showing you the innovative head-up display projecting driver information onto the bottom of the windshield.
