2014 Audi RS 5 vs. 2013 Chevrolet Corvette Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Audi RS 5 and the Chevrolet Corvette in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Chevrolet Corvette 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 Chevrolet Corvette, 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. The Audi RS 5 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Chevrolet Corvette.

Dimensions
Since the Audi RS 5 is much slimmer than the Chevrolet Corvette, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Audi RS 5, which is slightly longer than the Chevrolet Corvette.

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

Handling
The Audi RS 5 has a smaller turning radius than the Chevrolet Corvette, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi RS 5 is somewhat more powerful than the Chevrolet Corvette.

Utility
The Audi RS 5 offers greater seating capacity than the Chevrolet Corvette, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Audi RS 5 has less cargo capacity than the Chevrolet Corvette, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Audi RS 5 than that of the Chevrolet Corvette.
