2018 Audi S5 vs. 2018 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
The Audi S5 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the BMW M4, making it more convenient to drive.

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. The Audi S5 and the BMW M4 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi S5 is a little narrower than the BMW M4, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. 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
The Audi S5 offers greater seating capacity than the BMW M4, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Audi S5 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the BMW M4.

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