Audi R8, However it shares its powertrain and mechanicals with the Lamborghini Huracán, the 2020 Audi R8 is less sharp-edged and surprisingly easy to live with everyday. Behind the passenger compartment is a raucous V-10 engine that makes about 602 horsepower based on which version you choose and really howls when prodded. Acceleration is appropriately expeditious but the R8's ride and handling favors a more secure nature, which makes it less competent for track days but valued traveling. The R8's interior is nearly as impressive as its bodywork, with an all-digital gauge display, soft leather with optional quilted stitching, and real carbon-fiber trim.
What's New For 2020?
After not being sold for the 2019 model year, the R8 is back with crisper exterior styling and a revamped lineup, consisting of standard car and ragtop (Spyder) models and Performance variants of each. All versions are run by a V-10 engine installed behind the passenger compartment and come with both all-wheel drive and a seven-speed dual-clutch auto transmission; in regular models the V-10 engine makes 562 horsepower, while Performance variants make a hearty 602.
With a car as flashy as the R8, we'd suggest going with the Spyder model. In the end, with the top down, viewers can have a better look at the lucky dog behind the wheel. Choosing between the performance and standard models is a tougher decision. On the one hand, even the 562-hp version of the V-10 engine provides incredible acceleration and the similar bellowing wail as the 602-hp model. On the other hand, rolling up to the next Cars and Coffee event with the ultimate R8 might feel just that little bit more impressive.
Engine, Transmission, And Performance
The R8's V-10 engine is offered in two strengths, both strong enough to knock the wind out of unsuspecting travellers and both able to searing your eardrums with their otherworldly exhalations. The R8's seven-speed dual-clutch automatic isn't exactly the smoothest gearbox and sometimes it downshifts too quickly and even too deeply, resulting in neck-snapping acceleration followed by an almost immediate upshift to a higher gear. The base R8 is offered standard with an adaptive suspension, whereas Performance models are installed with a more aggressive, fixed-damper setup. Both absorb bumps perfectly and provide a comfortable journey that you could tolerate without tiredness on long trips. The R8's soft nature comes with a drawback, however: In full-attack mode, it does not tackle edges as confidently as its rivals, and sometimes it feels more unsettled than you'd expect from a supercar. The standard steering setup is direct and relays information from the road to the driver's hands with only a mild filter.
Fuel Economy And Real-World MPG
A budget friendly choice it is not. But does that really matter? For the record, all-wheel-drive Audi R8 models, regardless of roof type or hp rating, have the same EPA estimates for fuel economy-but they are not impressive. The truth is, the Audi R8's fuel economy (13 mpg in the town and 20 on the highway if you really want to know) is so low that all customers have to pay a $1700 gas-guzzler tax as part of the sale price. So be it.
Interior, Comfort, And Cargo
Minimalism never felt so luxurious. Shifting the infotainment display which normally resides high in the center of the dashboard to the instrument cluster provides a refreshingly basic layout and enables the superbly sculpted sport seats and hd digital gauge cluster take center stage in the R8's cockpit. Audi allows for quite a bit of customization in the case of interior colors and textures: black, gray, brown, and red leather are provided in either a quilted or flat pattern and with either matching or contrasting stitching. Overall, it's a beautifully executed cockpit with easy-to-reach controls including slick features such as the ignition button on the steering controls. No one purchases a supercar for its practicality, and the R8 doesn't buck the segment trend by providing real cargo capacity. In our testing, the R8 provided space for only one of our carry-on suitcases, so pack light.
Connectivity And Infotainment
The excellent Virtual Cockpit gauge cluster does double duty, displaying both instrumentation and the MMI infotainment system, and it seems as innovative here as it does in Audi's other cars like the A4 and the TT. HD navigation is standard, and the system can be managed via voice instructions, steering-wheel-mounted controls, or a clickwheel on the center console. An onboard 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot is also standard; Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability are, too.
Safety And Driver-Assistance Features
Supercars are rarely reviewed by our nation's safety agencies since they sell in such low volumes; indeed, the R8 has not been tested here so its crashworthiness is unknown. Audi offers little when it comes to driver-assistance features, but the Audi R8 coupe includes a full complement of airbags. Major safety features include:
✨ Maintenance And Warranty Coverage
✨ Standard Back And Front Parking Sensors
✨ Standard Automatic High-Beam Headlamps
Audi's warranty coverage for the R8 matches or exceeds all rivals apart from the Acura NSX. The deal includes a complimentary scheduled maintenance visit within the first year of ownership.
