2016 Audi A8 vs. 2016 BMW M5 Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
With the Audi A8 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the BMW M5, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi A8 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the BMW M5. 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 M5.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi A8 is significantly less powerful than the BMW M5. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi A8 and the BMW M5.

Warranty
The Audi A8 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW M5.
