2018 Audi A5 vs. 2017 Ford Mustang Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Mustang than the Audi A5, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Audi A5, drivers may find the Ford Mustang a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
The Audi A5 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Ford Mustang, 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). The Audi A5 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Ford Mustang, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 will cost more in transportation costs than the Ford Mustang.

Dimensions
Since the Audi A5 is much slimmer than the Ford Mustang, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Audi A5 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Ford Mustang.

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

Handling
The Audi A5 has about the same turning radius as the Ford Mustang, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Audi A5 has less horsepower than the Ford Mustang, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
The Audi A5 offers greater seating capacity than the Ford Mustang, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Audi A5 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Ford Mustang.

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