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

Convenience
With the Nissan GT-R 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 Nissan GT-R. 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 Nissan GT-R.

Dimensions
The Audi RS 5 is a little narrower than the Nissan GT-R, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Audi RS 5 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Nissan GT-R.

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

Performance
The Audi RS 5 has less horsepower than the Nissan GT-R, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi RS 5 and the Nissan GT-R. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Audi RS 5 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Nissan GT-R.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Audi RS 5 than that of the Nissan GT-R.
