Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi A8 than the Lincoln Continental. The Lincoln Continental will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A8.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi A8 as you will with the Lincoln Continental, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Audi A8 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Lincoln Continental, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Audi A8 and the Lincoln Continental have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi A8 is a little wider than the Lincoln Continental, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Audi A8, which is slightly longer than the Lincoln Continental.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Audi A8 and the Lincoln Continental do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Audi A8 has about the same turning radius as the Lincoln Continental, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Audi A8 and the Lincoln Continental.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi A8 and the Lincoln Continental. The Audi A8 has significantly less cargo room than the Lincoln Continental, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Audi A8 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lincoln Continental.
