The 2019 Audi A8 is an Evocative Example of Our Digital Future

It’s been three years since we saw the Prologue Concept, but when we laid eyes on the all-new 2019 Audi A8, we noticed some distinctive throwbacks. The all-new flagship will pave the way for all future redesigns, and it’s going to look darn good doing it. With slim headlamps with Matrix LED lighting with laser technology, a lighting bar across the rear deck, and a tapered roof, the four ring’s top-shelf model will more than look the part.

Good thing, too, since its loaded with equally prestigious tech. The big news is that the new A8 will be what’s called a “mild hybrid,” with a 48-volt electrical system in play to make it more efficient. This setup will also power adaptive suspension with four-wheel steering, as well as Audi AI (which will offer suggestions, not mandates—as we’re not quite ready to embrace robot overlords). The A8 will also debut traffic jam pilot, which will be able to drive the car autonomously up to a certain speed.

Will all the goodies in the new A8 make it to the U.S. market? We’ll see, but we’re also hopeful! If you have a pressing need for a new vehicle, contact our Audi dealership in State College, PA to get the ball rolling.
