Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi Q8 than in the BMW X3 M. The BMW X3 M will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Audi Q8.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Audi Q8, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the BMW X3 M.

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 Q8 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the BMW X3 M. 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 Q8 and the BMW X3 M have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Audi Q8 is much wider than the BMW X3 M, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Audi Q8, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the BMW X3 M.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Audi Q8 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the BMW X3 M.

Handling
The Audi Q8 has a larger turning radius than the BMW X3 M, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi Q8 has a lot less horsepower than the BMW X3 M.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Audi Q8 and the BMW X3 M. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Audi Q8 as you will in the BMW X3 M.

Warranty
The Audi Q8 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW X3 M.
