On the inside, the A8 L facelift is similar to the outgoing model. The dashboard gets retractable AC vents. The centre of the dashboard boasts twin screens – one for navigation and media and the other for the climate control and drive modes. Other changes include new seat upholstery and rear entertainment screens. Audi India will also offer a rear-seat luxury package with a recliner and foot massager.
Like every other Volkswagen, Skoda, Audi and Porsche model, the A8 L will be offered as a petrol-only model in the Indian market. The refreshed A8 L will pack the same powertrain as before with a 48v mild-hybrid support. The 3.0L turbo petrol V6 engine produces the same 340PS of power, however, the torque output has gone up to 540Nm. It comes mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission and 4-wheel-drive.

Audi India are likely to launch the A8 L facelift in the coming weeks. It will go up against the BMW 7-Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The arch-rival to the A8 L, the BMW 7-Series has recently been updated globally and we expect the new 7-Series to hit our shores soon. Closer to home, Mercedes-Benz India recently launched the locally-assembled Maybach S580 and the full-import Maybach S680.
