The 2009 Audi A8L is the 4-door, 5-passenger luxury sedan for drivers looking to differentiate themselves from the crowd that typically leans towards the BMW 7-series or the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. This is a smart move thanks to the Quattro AWD system on the A8L as well as the 4.2L V8 that produces 350 hp or if you really want to push this car along, you can opt for the 6.0L W12 which produces 450 hp. New standard equipment for 2009 includes Audi's Advanced Key system, the Audi Parking System advanced with rear view camera, a power trunk opener, rear power sunshade and manual side rear door sunshades, and power door closers. In addition to being luxurious and sporty, the A8L has an extended wheelbase which allows for greater legroom over the shorter A8. In addition you will find excellent safety features such as dual-circuit ABS, Electronic Brake Pressure Distribution and an Electronic Stabilization Program. Two-stage full-size driver and front passenger, as well as front and knee side air bags, are standard while rear side bags are an option. Active Head restraints are also standard and help reduce the risk of whiplash in a rear-end collision.
