2014 Audi RS 5 vs. 2014 Porsche Cayman Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
With the Porsche Cayman 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 Porsche Cayman, 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 Porsche Cayman.

Dimensions
Since the Audi RS 5 is much wider than the Porsche Cayman, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Audi RS 5, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Porsche Cayman.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Audi RS 5 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Porsche Cayman.

Handling
The Audi RS 5 has a larger turning radius than the Porsche Cayman, 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 Porsche Cayman. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The Audi RS 5 offers greater seating capacity than the Porsche Cayman, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Audi RS 5 has significantly less cargo room than the Porsche Cayman, 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 Porsche Cayman.
