Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Suburban than in the Audi e-tron, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Chevrolet Suburban 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 Chevrolet Suburban, 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 Chevrolet Suburban. 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 Chevrolet Suburban.
