2019 Audi A8 MMI Touchscreen


The new MMI touch response® system transforms the previous generation's rotary/push-button control and touchpad into a 10.1-inch touchscreen display that, when turned off, blends almost invisibly into the high-gloss black surround. Audi connect services have also been diversified, including the all-new HERE-powered map and navigation system. Making its debut in the A8, the system has the intuitive ability to learn over time through driven routes and provide smarter route suggestions. The new myAudi app becomes a personal mobility manager, where a route started on a smartphone can seamlessly continue on the on-board system when you step behind the wheel of the A8. Hear your music exactly like it unfolds in a concert hall with the Bang & Olufsen premium audio system featuring 3D surround sound.

Standard quattro® all-wheel drive with a self-locking center differential gives you complete command across all weather conditions.
