Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi Q8 than in the Land Rover Range Rover Sport. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Audi Q8 and the Land Rover Range Rover Sport.

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). Clearly, the Audi Q8 is a better financial choice over the Land Rover Range Rover Sport, when considering MSRP. 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 Land Rover Range Rover Sport.

Dimensions
Since the Audi Q8 is much slimmer than the Land Rover Range Rover Sport, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Audi Q8, which is slightly longer than the Land Rover Range Rover Sport.

Handling
The Audi Q8 has a larger turning radius than the Land Rover Range Rover Sport, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Audi Q8 is clearly the choice over the Land Rover Range Rover Sport for pulling heavy loads. The Audi Q8 has a little more horsepower than the Land Rover Range Rover Sport.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Audi Q8 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Land Rover Range Rover Sport.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Audi Q8 and the Land Rover Range Rover Sport.

Warranty
The Audi Q8 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Land Rover Range Rover Sport.
