An important change at the front is the digital Matrix LED headlights with DMD technology (Digital Micromirror Device). Each headlight has around 1.3 million micromirrors. They enable new functions such as the lane and orientation light for highways. The rear also features new lighting technology in the form of digital OLED taillights with various signatures.

In the interior, the networked MMI navigation plus based on the third-generation modular infotainment system (MIB 3) is standard. Among other things, two new 10.1" displays with full HD resolution are available for the rear. The so-called "reclining seat" in the A8 L offers numerous adjustment options and a footrest on the back of the front passenger seat. This provides foot heating and massage.
