2018 Audi S5 vs. 2018 Dodge Challenger Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Dodge Challenger 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 Dodge Challenger in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi S5 as you will with the Dodge Challenger, 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 Dodge Challenger. 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 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Dodge Challenger.

Dimensions
Since the Audi S5 is much slimmer than the Dodge Challenger, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Audi S5, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Dodge Challenger.

Drivetrain
The Audi S5 has much less torque than the Dodge Challenger, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi S5 is significantly less powerful than the Dodge Challenger. 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 Dodge Challenger.

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