Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi Q7 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Lincoln Nautilus, with comparable head- and legroom. The Audi Q7 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Lincoln Nautilus, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

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. Both the Audi Q7 and the Lincoln Nautilus have similar Destination Charges.
