Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi Q8 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Audi Q8 e-tron, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Audi Q8 and the Audi Q8 e-tron.

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 Audi Q8 e-tron.

Dimensions
Since the Audi Q8 is much wider than the Audi Q8 e-tron, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Audi Q8 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Audi Q8 e-tron.

Handling
The Audi Q8 has a larger turning radius than the Audi Q8 e-tron, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Audi Q8 has a little less horsepower than the Audi Q8 e-tron.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Audi Q8 does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Audi Q8 e-tron.

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