The Audi Q8 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Land Rover Range Rover Velar, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Land Rover Range Rover Velar.

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 Velar.
