Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi Q8 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Lincoln Aviator, with comparable head- and legroom. The Lincoln Aviator 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
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). Whether you pick the Audi Q8 or the Lincoln Aviator, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Lincoln Aviator.

Dimensions
Since the Audi Q8 is much slimmer than the Lincoln Aviator, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Audi Q8 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lincoln Aviator.

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

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Audi Q8 is clearly the choice over the Lincoln Aviator for pulling heavy loads. The Audi Q8 has a little less horsepower than the Lincoln Aviator.

Utility
The Audi Q8 has less seating than the Lincoln Aviator, making the Lincoln Aviator the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Audi Q8 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Lincoln Aviator.

Warranty
The Audi Q8 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lincoln Aviator.
