2018 Audi S5 vs. 2016 BMW M235 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW M235 than the Audi S5, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Audi S5, drivers may find the BMW M235 a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

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 M235, 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 is somewhat more expensive than the BMW M235. 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 M235 have similar Destination Charges.

Since the Audi S5 is much wider than the BMW M235, 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 M235.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Audi S5 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the BMW M235.

Handling
The Audi S5 has a larger turning radius than the BMW M235, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.
