Audi A8L is fun to drive and offers a nice handling experience too. The cabin has been fitted with advanced features and offers maximum comfort. The build qulaity is also excellent. On the flip side, Audi A8L is heavier on the pocket. Also, the electronics inside the car are prone to malfunctioning.
Audi A8 L is a highly spacious sedan. Its external design is quite flamboyant and looks quite premium. Audi has loaded A8L with many comfort and safety features. Both the 4 Ltr. petrol and the 4 Ltr. diesel engine performs equally well. Customer also has the option of 6.3 Ltr. diesel engine which is more powerful and punchy. The major factor that can dent its sales is the higher cost of ownership. Audi spares are also costly and you do not find authorised workshop in every city. The Lower ground clearence may also trouble on bumpy roads.
I do agree with the above views. One of my colleagues owns the Audi A8 L 50 TDI. This car is no doubt made for people who can afford it easily, however, the lower fuel efficiency is definitely a thing that pinches everybody no matter who he is. My colleague complains that his Audi A8 L gives only around 8-9 Kmpl in city rides and he has hardly touched 12 Kmpl on highways. However, he enjoys the punchy 3.0 Ltr. diesel engine's performance on long rides. This car is fitted with pretty much everything which one can expect.
