Audi unveiled a refreshed look for the 2015 A8 lineup including the A8 TDI  to North American audiences this week.  The updated models feature a new, sleek design and more power.

The Audi A8 4.0T houses a more powerful V8 engine, adding 15 horses under the hood for 435 horsepower.  All A8 models feature a wider, lower stance and improved LED headlamps.

In addition, Audi is adding a number of driver assistance features to the 2015 Audi A8 lineup, including active lane assist, secondary collision assist, night vision assistant, animal detection, Audi park assist, active lane assist, and a head-up display for easy access to monitoring vehicle speed, navigation, and cruise control.

The 2015 A8 and S8 will go on sale in the U.S. this summer.  This week at CES, Audi announced a partnership with AT&T for in-vehicle 4G LTE data plans in new A3 sedans.

Due to an copy-editing error, the Audi A8 4.0T V8 was incorrectly referred to as the Audi A8 TDI.  The Audi A8 TDI’s engine remains unchanged for 2015 and the Audi A8 4.0T V8 gets an additional 15 horsepower.
