The optional Audi Intelligence (AI) active suspension, one component of a suite of intelligent features, includes an electric motor at each corner capable of raising or lowering that wheel via a torsion bar linked to the suspension. In effect, there are two springs on each wheel of A8s equipped with the active suspension: an air spring and a torsion bar coupling the wheel carrier to the electric motor. The motors and torsion bars eliminate the need for traditional anti-roll bars by enabling roll control as well as managing pitch and dive. The active setup’s most promising feature, however, is the ability to float the A8’s body over road irregularities. The AI system scans the road ahead with a forward-looking camera (Audi calls the function Preview) and turns that data into wheel motions that follow the road’s shape. Before the front wheels encounter an elevated bump, the body is raised to provide the additional suspension travel needed to absorb the imperfection. Then, as the car passes over, the suspension is extended to trace the road’s topography. Dips and single-wheel events are handled similarly, with the wheels following the terrain while the body remains isolated. The system provides 2.0 inches of lift and 2.4 inches of drop at each wheel, enough to make speed bumps and manhole covers virtually irrelevant. Closed-course demonstrations of the Preview technology were convincing, but we didn’t get to experience it on the open road. Even though the active suspension was fitted to two test cars and performed as promised to limit roll, pitch, and dive, the Preview function wasn’t enabled on those cars. Audi’s Drive Select system is standard and offers three driving modes (Auto, Comfort, and Dynamic) and also integrates control of the AI suspension on cars so equipped. The standard suspension is no slouch itself when it comes to comfort and control. Wheel sizes will start at 19 inches, with options up to 21 inches available. We didn’t sample the optional torque-vectoring Sport rear differential, which no doubt would have improved the handling. Still, we weaved the A8 up a road more appropriate for a Mazda Miata and were impressed with the big Audi’s grip and manners, although no one is pretending a car this large has any business attacking roads that tight. Steering feel, despite efforts to improve its feedback, remains as it is in most other Audis: laser-sight precise, but mostly numb. If Audi could elevate its steering system’s feedback to match its accuracy, it would possess the magic bullet sought by energetic pilots of every executive sedan. The company has figured out that a sedan this long benefits from a tighter turning radius and so offers dynamic all-wheel steering as an option. The system operates over a wide latitude depending on vehicle speed and other factors, behaving as if the steering ratio varies between 9.5:1 and 17.0:1. It’s the inclusion of the rear wheels in the business of turning that makes the real difference. Below 37 mph, the rear wheels turn out of phase with the fronts at an angle of up to 5 degrees, making the A8’s wheelbase feel shorter and shrinking its turning circle by 3.3 feet relative to cars without the system. Above that speed, rear-wheel steering angle is in phase with the fronts and reduced to a maximum of 2 degrees. A cone-smashing parking-lot demonstration proved that you’ll either opt for the four-wheel steering or you’ll do a lot more sawing at the wheel in tight spaces. Hit the Lot Mercifully, the A8 is as well suited to parking-lot duty as Kylie Jenner is to Instagram. The remainder of its AI features are designed to enable low-speed maneuvers in tight spots as well as parking in lots, on the street, or in a garage. Parking Pilot and Remote Parking Pilot enable autonomous parallel or perpendicular parking, although this system, too, wasn’t quite ready for prime time during our demos. During one parallel-parking attempt, we stopped the car manually before it executed autonomous removal of its driver’s-side mirror on a concrete abutment. It was then unable (or unwilling) to extract itself from the parking spot into which it had wedged itself—the automotive equivalent of a toddler’s sit-down protest.

Imagine a truck is coming from the side and is about to crash you . The car lifts that side . It means that the impact is more

Hat die S Klasse auch ein Manoeuvre Assist ? Ich meine sieht ja sehr gut aus z.B im Parkhaus oder so könnte man dies wirklich gebrauchen.

The only useful feature of this car is that side collision system. The rest is garbage that no one needs, like that stupid cross traffic braking system. Looking out of a car is not difficult, and any oncoming traffic or pedestrians must (by logic and good old common sense) always use caution around any moving vehicle. Just use the damn camera system that allowed the driver to see what happened to the sides, like the cars had in 2010 instead. All these systems do is contribute to the further destruction of common sense.

Let’s say that someone hits the side and then the car lifts up..wouldn’t that be a safety hazard because there will be more possibilities of a rollover accident?
Danny Kross (3 months ago)
and it would still be less dangereous for the passenger if the energy of the impacted is shifted elsewhere, the goal isn't to keep the car safe, buf the passanger safe and make sure he/she takes thel east damage possible

The car is great. I had it for testing for one and a half day and i KINDA liked it. The thing is that if you would compare this Audi to an 5 year old BMW at the suspensions, horse power, the BMW would win. If you have problems like while driving and you look at your phone you feel sick, well, it's your unlucky day. The car has a lot of great features like video calls if you're in the back seat, TV mode, again, if you're in the back seat, and those cool LED lights with over 300 programable colours. The car seats have massage mode, and believe me, it feels so good. While i was driving and activated the massage mode it made me feel sleepy. Another thing is that the steering wheel is very thin. It doesn't support Apple's CarPlay. ( or it didn't work for me ). All the screens have LCD displayes, but the touchscreen controller has an OLED screen. The auto pilot is separately bought and if you live in countries where the auto pilot is illegal or isn't supported than say good bye. One more thing, the driver seet screen supports force touch
