2022 Audi A8 Lineup Detailed, 563-HP S8 Price Slashed
Audi is slimming down the A8 lineup along with the luxury sedan’s updates for the 2022 model year. The V-6–powered A8 55 and the V-8–powered S8 will now be the only versions available in the U.S., meaning that the previous V-8 and plug-in-hybrid versions of the A8 have been dropped. Fortunately for eight-cylinder diehards, the S8’s base price is significantly lower than before to bring it closer to the previous A8 60’s cost.
The 2022 A8, with its 335-hp turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 engine, now starts at $87,595. That’s a $50 increase from last year and significantly less than the equivalent Mercedes S-class, the $112,150 S500. The S8 comes with the same 563-hp twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 as before and starts at $118,995, a whopping $14,250 decrease from last year.
