2015 Audi S4 vs. 2015 Kia K900 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia K900 than the Audi S4, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Kia K900 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi S4.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi S4 as you will with the Kia K900, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi S4 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Kia K900. 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 S4 and the Kia K900 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Audi S4 is much slimmer than the Kia K900, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Audi S4, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Kia K900.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Audi S4 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Kia K900.

Handling
The Audi S4 has about the same turning radius as the Kia K900, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi S4 is significantly less powerful than the Kia K900. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi S4 and the Kia K900. The Audi S4 has significantly less cargo room than the Kia K900, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Audi S4 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia K900.
