Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Expedition than in the Audi Q8, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Ford Expedition will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Audi Q8.

Cost

Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built.
