Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Audi SQ5 than the Lincoln Nautilus. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Audi SQ5 and the Lincoln Nautilus.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi SQ5 as you will with the Lincoln Nautilus, 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).

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 SQ5 will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Lincoln Nautilus.

Since the Audi SQ5 is much slimmer than the Lincoln Nautilus, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Audi SQ5 is slightly shorter than the Lincoln Nautilus, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Audi SQ5 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Lincoln Nautilus.
