2016 Audi A5 vs. 2017 Ford Mustang Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi A5 than the Ford Mustang. The Ford Mustang will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A5.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi A5 as you will with the Ford Mustang, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 and the Ford Mustang have similar Destination Charges.

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. The Audi A5 is slightly shorter than the Ford Mustang, which may make it easier to park.

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
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi A5 is significantly less powerful than the Ford Mustang. 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 Ford Mustang. The Audi A5 has less cargo capacity than the Ford Mustang, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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