2021 Audi A8 Exterior and Dimensions

Audi A8 Exterior Design Rating

2021 A8 Exterior

Audi may have succumbed to the big grille trend as well, but the A8's Singleframe grille is subtly incorporated. There's nothing especially dramatic about the design; it's just typically Audi, solid and classy in its appearance. 19-inch alloy wheels are standard on the base version, and all have full-LED headlights, LED taillights with dynamic indicators, power-folding mirrors, and a panoramic sunroof. Only the 60 TFSI has the Sport style exterior kit fitted by default. If there is a criticism, it's that the A8 doesn't look different enough from the less expensive A6.

The Audi A8 is marginally longer and wider than a BMW 7 Series so comes with a significant footprint. Key dimensions include a width (excluding the mirrors) of 76.6 inches, a length of 208.7 inches, and a height of 58.6 inches, except the 60 TFSI which stands 58.5 inches tall. All versions have the same 123.2-inch wheelbase. The curb weight starts at 4,773 pounds for the 55 TFSI and goes up to 5,335 lbs for the Audi A8 60 TFSIe quattro. That makes the hybrid over 500 lbs heavier than even a base Audi Q7 SUV.
