2014 Audi A5 vs. 2013 BMW 135 Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Audi A5 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the BMW 135 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the BMW 135, the Audi A5 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the Audi A5 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the BMW 135, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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). Whether you pick the Audi A5 or the BMW 135, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 A5 and the BMW 135 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Audi A5 is much wider than the BMW 135, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Audi A5, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the BMW 135.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Audi A5 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the BMW 135.

Handling
The Audi A5 has a larger turning radius than the BMW 135, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi A5 is significantly less powerful than the BMW 135. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi A5 and the BMW 135. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Audi A5 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the BMW 135.

Warranty
The Audi A5 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 135.
