2014 Audi RS 5 vs. 2015 BMW 650 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi RS 5 offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the BMW 650. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Audi RS 5, drivers may find the BMW 650 a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the BMW 650 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). Based on MSRP, the Audi RS 5 is clearly a better financial choice over the BMW 650. 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 650.

Dimensions
Since the Audi RS 5 is much slimmer than the BMW 650, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. 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 650.

Drivetrain
The Audi RS 5 has much less torque than the BMW 650, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Audi RS 5 has about the same turning radius as the BMW 650, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Audi RS 5 and the BMW 650.

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 650. The Audi RS 5 has significantly less cargo room than the BMW 650, 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 650.
