2017 BMW 650 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 650 than the Audi S5. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Audi S5, the BMW 650 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 650 as you will with the Audi S5, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 650 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 650 and the Audi S5 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 650 is much wider than the Audi S5, 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 BMW 650, which is slightly longer than the Audi S5.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the BMW 650 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Audi S5.

Handling
The BMW 650 has about the same turning radius as the Audi S5, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 650 is somewhat more powerful than the Audi S5.

Utility
The BMW 650 has less seating than the Audi S5, making the Audi S5 the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The BMW 650 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 650 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Audi S5.
