2013 Audi RS 5 vs. 2014 BMW 435 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW 435 than the Audi RS 5, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Audi RS 5, drivers may find the BMW 435 a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the BMW 435 you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Audi RS 5, due to its tank size and 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 RS 5 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW 435, 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 RS 5 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the BMW 435.

Dimensions
The Audi RS 5 is a little wider than the BMW 435, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Audi RS 5 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the BMW 435.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Audi RS 5 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the BMW 435.

Handling
The Audi RS 5 has a larger turning radius than the BMW 435, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi RS 5 has a much more powerful engine than the BMW 435. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi RS 5 and the BMW 435. The Audi RS 5 has significantly less cargo room than the BMW 435, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Audi RS 5 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 435.
