Comparison Review

Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Suburban than in the Audi Q8, 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 Q8.

You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi Q8 as you will with the Chevrolet Suburban, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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 Q8 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 Q8 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Chevrolet Suburban.

If you go with the Audi Q8, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Chevrolet Suburban.

The Audi Q8 has the same turning radius as the Chevrolet Suburban, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

If you've got something you need to pull, the Audi Q8 will do just as well as the Chevrolet Suburban, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Audi Q8 has a little less horsepower than the Chevrolet Suburban.

With its lower torque engine, the Audi Q8 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Chevrolet Suburban.

Soccer Moms beware - the Audi Q8 seats a lot fewer people than the Chevrolet Suburban. The Audi Q8 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Chevrolet Suburban.

You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Audi Q8 than that of the Chevrolet Suburban.
