The India launch of the Audi A8L facelift took place at the special event in Dubai. The A8 gets minor cosmetic upgrades, most evident in the optional Matrix LED headlights, and the cabin has been tweaked too.
Interestingly, the A8 will now be available in 100 exterior colours, 23 interior colours and 12 options for wood inserts. Seats embossed with personal logos will also be part of the customisation program.
The A8 will be available with two diesel engines - the 3.0 TDI and the 4.2 TDI - and one petrol motor, the 4.0 TFSI. All engines now develop slightly more power and are more efficient as well.
Revised dampers round off the list of changes. As before, the A8 will be imported into India as a completely built unit and hence, is on the pricier side.
Audi has priced the A8 3.0 TDI at Rs 1.12 crore (ex-showroom, Delhi). Prices for the rest of the range are yet to be announced.
