2015 Audi S5 vs. 2014 Porsche Boxster Review

Comparison Review

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

Convenience
With the Porsche Boxster you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Audi S5, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Porsche Boxster. 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 Porsche Boxster.

Dimensions
Since the Audi S5 is much wider than the Porsche Boxster, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. 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 Porsche Boxster.

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 Porsche Boxster.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi S5 is somewhat more powerful than the Porsche Boxster.

Utility
The Audi S5 offers greater seating capacity than the Porsche Boxster, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Audi S5 as you will in the Porsche Boxster.

Warranty
The Audi S5 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Porsche Boxster.
