In response to increased competition from the Mercedes S-Class, the Audi A8 has received a facelift for the 2022 model year bringing sharper styling, new exterior colors, and advanced interior tech. Thanks to a wider Singleframe grille and larger air intakes on the front bumper, the 2022 A8 has a more imposing presence than the 2021 model. The redesigned headlights can also be upgraded with Audi's optional Digital Matrix LED technology with 1.3 million micromirrors, the rear OLED taillights are revised with new graphics, and the rear diffuser insert is updated horizontal bars. An optional S-Line exterior package is available for the A8 for the first time.
New exterior colors for the 2022 A8 include Metallic District Green, Firmament Blue, Manhattan Gray, and Ultra Blue, along with five new matte finishes: Daytona Gray, Floret Silver, District Green, Terra Gray, and Glacier White. In addition, six new wheel designs are also available.
Inside, the A8's 10.1-inch upper screen, 8.6-inch lower screen, and 12.3-inch digital dashboard carry over. However, two 10.1-inch displays can now be added to the back seats for rear passengers.
Under the hood, the 2022 A8 is available with a 3.0 TFSI V6 rated at 335 hp and 368 lb-ft of torque and a 4.0-liter V8 producing 453 hp and 486 lb-ft, which is sent to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission.
