Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi e-tron offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Cadillac Escalade, with comparable head- and legroom. The Cadillac Escalade will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Audi e-tron.

Convenience
With the Cadillac Escalade, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi e-tron will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Cadillac Escalade. 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 e-tron carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Cadillac Escalade.

Dimensions
Since the Audi e-tron is much slimmer than the Cadillac Escalade, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Audi e-tron, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Cadillac Escalade.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Audi e-tron doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Cadillac Escalade.

Handling
The Audi e-tron has a larger turning radius than the Cadillac Escalade, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Audi e-tron seats a lot fewer people than the Cadillac Escalade. The Audi e-tron has significantly less cargo capacity than the Cadillac Escalade.

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