FWIW by default there's one difference, that might be important for
those, who expect that downloaded packages are cached. Packages are
stored in the cache when running

  sudo apt -o APT::Keep-Downloaded-Packages=1 full-upgrade

In some situations the colour might be an issue, if required getting
rid of it could be done by adding

  -o APT::Color=0

The -o option just temporarily changes the default options. A
permanent customization of those and other options is possible, too.
