2014 Audi S5 vs. 2014 Audi A5 Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Audi S5 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Audi A5 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Audi S5 and the Audi A5 in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Audi A5 you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Audi S5, 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 S5 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Audi A5, 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 S5 and the Audi A5 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi S5 is about the same width as the Audi A5. When looking at overall length, the Audi S5 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Audi A5.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Audi S5 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Audi A5.

Handling
The Audi S5 has about the same turning radius as the Audi A5, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi S5 has a much more powerful engine than the Audi A5. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi S5 and the Audi A5. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Audi S5 as you will in the Audi A5.

Warranty
The Audi S5 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Audi A5.
