Comparison Review

The Audi e-tron offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Lincoln Aviator, with comparable head- and legroom. The Lincoln Aviator 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.

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 Lincoln Aviator. 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 Lincoln Aviator have similar Destination Charges.

Since the Audi e-tron is much slimmer than the Lincoln Aviator, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Audi e-tron is slightly shorter than the Lincoln Aviator, which may make it easier to park.

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

With similar torque, the Audi e-tron and the Lincoln Aviator are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

The Audi e-tron has less seating than the Lincoln Aviator, making the Lincoln Aviator the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Audi e-tron has significantly less cargo capacity than the Lincoln Aviator.

The Audi e-tron comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lincoln Aviator.
