2016 Audi A5 vs. 2016 Toyota Prius Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Prius than the Audi A5, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Toyota Prius 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 Toyota Prius, 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 Toyota Prius, 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 Toyota Prius.

Dimensions
Since the Audi A5 is much wider than the Toyota Prius, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Audi A5 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota Prius.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Audi A5 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Toyota Prius.

Handling
The Audi A5 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Toyota Prius, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi A5 has a much more powerful engine than the Toyota Prius. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The Audi A5 has less seating than the Toyota Prius, making the Toyota Prius the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Audi A5 has significantly less cargo room than the Toyota Prius, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

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