2016 Audi A5 vs. 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Audi A5 and the Chevrolet Corvette in the front seats.

Convenience
The Chevrolet Corvette requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Audi A5, making it more convenient to drive.

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). Based on MSRP, the Audi A5 is clearly a better financial choice over the Chevrolet Corvette. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Audi A5 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Chevrolet Corvette.

Dimensions
Since the Audi A5 is much slimmer than the Chevrolet Corvette, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Audi A5, which is slightly longer than the Chevrolet Corvette.

Drivetrain
The Audi A5 has much less torque than the Chevrolet Corvette, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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

Utility
The Audi A5 offers greater seating capacity than the Chevrolet Corvette, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Audi A5 as you will in the Chevrolet Corvette.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Audi A5 than that of the Chevrolet Corvette.
