2014 BMW 640 vs. 2014 Audi S5 Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the BMW 640 than in the Audi S5, due to the BMW 640's smaller rear head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Audi S5, the BMW 640 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the BMW 640 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Audi S5, 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 BMW 640 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Audi S5, 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 BMW 640 and the Audi S5 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 640 is much wider than the Audi S5, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the BMW 640, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Audi S5.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the BMW 640 and the Audi S5 do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The BMW 640 has a larger turning radius than the Audi S5, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW 640 has less horsepower than the Audi S5, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 640 and the Audi S5. The BMW 640 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Audi S5.

Warranty
The BMW 640 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Audi S5.
