2016 BMW 428 vs. 2018 Audi S5 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 BMW 428 than the Audi S5. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Audi S5, the BMW 428 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The BMW 428 will require fewer stops at 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). Based on MSRP, the BMW 428 is clearly a better financial choice over the Audi S5. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW 428 and the Audi S5 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW 428 is about the same width as the Audi S5. The BMW 428 is slightly shorter than the Audi S5, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The BMW 428 has much less torque than the Audi S5, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The BMW 428 has a smaller turning radius than the Audi S5, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 428 is significantly less powerful than the Audi S5. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The BMW 428 has less seating than the Audi S5, making the Audi S5 the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The BMW 428 has significantly less cargo room than the Audi S5, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The BMW 428 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Audi S5.
