2016 Audi S8 vs. 2016 BMW M5 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi S8 than the BMW M5. The BMW M5 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi S8.

Convenience
With the Audi S8 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the BMW M5, due to its larger tank size and better 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 S8 is somewhat more expensive than the BMW M5. 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 S8 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the BMW M5.

Dimensions
Since the Audi S8 is much wider than the BMW M5, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Audi S8, which is slightly longer than the BMW M5.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Audi S8 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the BMW M5.

Handling
The Audi S8 has a larger turning radius than the BMW M5, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi S8 is somewhat more powerful than the BMW M5.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi S8 and the BMW M5. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Audi S8 as you will in the BMW M5.

Warranty
The Audi S8 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW M5.
