2014 Audi RS 5 vs. 2015 BMW 640 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 RS 5 than the BMW 640. The BMW 640 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi RS 5.

Convenience
With the BMW 640 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi RS 5 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the BMW 640. 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 640.

Dimensions
The Audi RS 5 is a little narrower than the BMW 640, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Audi RS 5, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the BMW 640.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Audi RS 5 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the BMW 640.

Handling
The Audi RS 5 has about the same turning radius as the BMW 640, allowing equal maneuverability 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 640. 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 640. The Audi RS 5 has significantly less cargo room than the BMW 640, 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 640.
