2016 Audi A8 vs. 2016 BMW 550 Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
With the Audi A8 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the BMW 550, 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 A8 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW 550, 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. In this case, the Audi A8 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the BMW 550.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Audi A8 and the BMW 550.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi A8 and the BMW 550.

Warranty
The Audi A8 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 550.
