In a 2017 comparison test that included the Mazda and Jeep, the 2019 Audi S8 placed fifth. Handling also proved to be another 2019 Audi S8 weak spot and we found the steering to be numb.

The 2019 Audi S8, on the other hand, is a better package, as we noted in a 2017 First Test, thanks to its smooth powertrain and well-calibrated brakes that smoothly transition between regenerative and mechanical braking. However, since it isn’t a plug-in hybrid, the 2019 Audi S8 doesn’t have much EV mode range and can only travel around 0.5 miles on electricity.A rearview camera with rear parking sensors is now standard on all models.
