Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi Q8 as you will with the Porsche Macan, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi Q8 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Porsche Macan. 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 Porsche Macan.

Dimensions
Since the Audi Q8 is much wider than the Porsche Macan, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Audi Q8, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Porsche Macan.

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

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

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

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Audi Q8 and the Porsche Macan. The Audi Q8 has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Porsche Macan.

Warranty
The Audi Q8 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Porsche Macan.
