2014 Audi S5 vs. 2013 BMW 135 Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW 135 than the Audi S5, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the BMW 135, the Audi S5 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi S5 as you will with the BMW 135, 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). The Audi S5 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW 135, 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 BMW 135 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Audi S5 is much wider than the BMW 135, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Audi S5, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the BMW 135.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Audi S5 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the BMW 135.

Handling
The Audi S5 has a larger turning radius than the BMW 135, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi S5 is somewhat more powerful than the BMW 135.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi S5 and the BMW 135. The Audi S5 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the BMW 135.

Warranty
The Audi S5 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 135.
