2014 Audi RS 5 vs. 2014 Porsche Panamera Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Porsche Panamera than the Audi RS 5, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Audi RS 5 and the Porsche Panamera in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Porsche Panamera 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 Porsche Panamera. 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 Porsche Panamera.

Dimensions
Since the Audi RS 5 is much slimmer than the Porsche Panamera, 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 Porsche Panamera.

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

Handling
The Audi RS 5 has a smaller turning radius than the Porsche Panamera, 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 Porsche Panamera.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi RS 5 and the Porsche Panamera. The Audi RS 5 has significantly less cargo room than the Porsche Panamera, 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 Panamera.
