2016 Audi S5 vs. 2016 BMW M4 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW M4 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 M4 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 M4, 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). Based on MSRP, the Audi S5 is clearly a better financial choice over the BMW M4. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Audi S5 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the BMW M4.

Dimensions
The Audi S5 is about the same width as the BMW M4. When looking at overall length, the Audi S5 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the BMW M4.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Audi S5 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the BMW M4.

Handling
The Audi S5 has a smaller turning radius than the BMW M4, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi S5 is significantly less powerful than the BMW M4. 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 S5 and the BMW M4. The Audi S5 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the BMW M4.

Warranty
The Audi S5 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW M4.
