The 2019 Audi A8 makes its grand 
entrance at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
Though it takes place near the end of the calendar year, the Los Angeles Auto Show® marks the beginning of every auto show season. Southern California, especially downtown Los Angeles, provides the perfect setting to make a debut. After all, the weather can’t be beat, and car culture thrives there year-round since cars are an essential component to the everyday lives of the region’s residents.
Positioned at the entrance to the South Hall of the Los Angeles Convention Center, an Audi shrine celebrates the latest models bearing the iconic four rings logo. From the performance line of RS series sports coupes and sedans to recent additions to the Audi collection line, this attractive display reveals a very special guest: a production-model 2019 A8 sedan. The fourth generation brings future premium with state-of-the-art driver assistance technologies and innovative Audi AI active suspension.
An available animated OLED taillight sequence activates when the A8 is unlocked or locked.
A walk-around of the 2019 Audi A8 reveals beauty to complement its life-simplifying tech.

For the first time, the ASF® chassis is constructed with four lightweight materials to help create an even stronger vehicle in comparison to its predecessor.
