2016 Audi S5 vs. 2017 Chevrolet Volt Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Volt than the Audi S5, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Audi S5 and the Chevrolet Volt in the front seats.

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 Chevrolet Volt, 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 will cost more in transportation costs than the Chevrolet Volt.

Dimensions
Since the Audi S5 is much wider than the Chevrolet Volt, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Audi S5 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Chevrolet Volt.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Audi S5 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Chevrolet Volt.

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

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

Utility
The Audi S5 has less seating than the Chevrolet Volt, making the Chevrolet Volt the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Audi S5 than that of the Chevrolet Volt.
