Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the GMC Yukon than in the Audi Q8, due to its greater head- and legroom. The GMC Yukon 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
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi Q8 as you will with the GMC Yukon, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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 Q8 is somewhat more expensive than the GMC Yukon. 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 GMC Yukon.

Dimensions
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 GMC Yukon.

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

Handling
The Audi Q8 has a significantly larger turning radius than the GMC Yukon, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

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

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Audi Q8 than that of the GMC Yukon.
