Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi e-tron offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Audi Q8, with comparable head- and legroom. The Audi e-tron will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi Q8.

Convenience
With the Audi Q8, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Audi e-tron, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 e-tron is somewhat more expensive than the Audi Q8. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Audi e-tron and the Audi Q8 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Audi e-tron is much slimmer than the Audi Q8, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Audi e-tron takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Audi Q8.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Audi e-tron transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Audi Q8.

Handling
The Audi e-tron has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Audi Q8, allowing you to much more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Audi Q8 is clearly the choice over the Audi e-tron for pulling heavy loads. The Audi e-tron has a little more horsepower than the Audi Q8.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Audi e-tron and the Audi Q8. The Audi e-tron has less cargo space than the Audi Q8, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Audi e-tron comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Audi Q8.
