2014 Audi A7 vs. 2014 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 is somewhat more expensive than the Audi S5. 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. If you go with the Audi A7, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Audi S5.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Audi A7 and the Audi S5 do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Audi A7 has a larger turning radius than the Audi S5, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver 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
The Audi A7 offers greater seating capacity than the Audi S5, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.

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