2017 Audi A7 vs. 2018 Audi S5 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 A7 than the Audi S5. The Audi S5 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A7.

Convenience
With the Audi A7 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Audi S5, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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 A7 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Audi S5, 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 A7 and the Audi S5 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Audi A7 is much wider than the Audi S5, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Audi A7, which is slightly longer than the Audi S5.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Audi A7 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Audi S5.

Handling
The Audi A7 has about the same turning radius as the Audi S5, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Audi A7 has less horsepower than the Audi S5, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi A7 and the Audi S5.

Warranty
The Audi A7 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Audi S5.
