2015 Audi A5 vs. 2014 Porsche Boxster Review

Comparison Review

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

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi A5 as you will with the Porsche Boxster, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi A5 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Porsche Boxster. 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 Porsche Boxster.

Dimensions
Since the Audi A5 is much wider than the Porsche Boxster, 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 Porsche Boxster.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Audi A5 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Porsche Boxster.

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

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

Utility
The Audi A5 offers greater seating capacity than the Porsche Boxster, 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 Porsche Boxster.

Warranty
The Audi A5 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Porsche Boxster.
