The 2020 Audi A8 is Audi's top-of-the-line full-size sedan. Meanwhile, while it has a similarly sporty and refined silhouette, you may notice the 2020 Audi A7 is a bit sleeker. That's because it's, for one, a bit smaller, based on the 2020 Audi A6. But look closer. The Audi A7 isn't really a sedan at all. When you open the rear hatch, the whole rear glass lifts away for hatchback practicality combined with sports sedan elegance! That means you can fit nearly 30 cubic feet of cargo in the 2020 Audi A7. The 2020 Audi A8 is still big enough for shopping bags and suitcases with its generous 12.5 cubic foot trunk.

Both cars also come with similar standard exterior features like 19" alloy wheels, LED headlights and LED animating turn indicators.
