2015 Audi S5 vs. 2015 Nissan 370Z Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Audi S5 and the Nissan 370Z in the front seats.

Convenience
The Nissan 370Z requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Audi S5, 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). The Audi S5 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Nissan 370Z, 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 Destination Charge for the Audi S5 is much higher than that for the Nissan 370Z.

Dimensions
The Audi S5 is about the same width as the Nissan 370Z. 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 Nissan 370Z.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Audi S5 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Nissan 370Z.

Handling
The Audi S5 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Nissan 370Z, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Audi S5 and the Nissan 370Z.

Utility
The Audi S5 offers greater seating capacity than the Nissan 370Z, 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 Nissan 370Z.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Audi S5 than that of the Nissan 370Z.
