Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lincoln Navigator than in the Audi Q8. The Lincoln Navigator will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi Q8.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lincoln Navigator as you will with the Audi Q8, 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). The Lincoln Navigator is somewhat more expensive than the Audi Q8. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Lincoln Navigator is much higher than that for the Audi Q8.

Dimensions
The Lincoln Navigator is a little wider than the Audi Q8, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Lincoln Navigator, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Audi Q8.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Lincoln Navigator does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Audi Q8.

Handling
The Lincoln Navigator has a smaller turning radius than the Audi Q8, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Audi Q8 is clearly the choice over the Lincoln Navigator for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Lincoln Navigator greatly out-muscles the Audi Q8.

Utility
Soccer Moms and those who need to chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Lincoln Navigator more than the Audi Q8, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. With the Lincoln Navigator, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Audi Q8.

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