2014 BMW M5 vs. 2014 Audi S6 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the BMW M5 than in the Audi S6, due to the BMW M5's smaller rear head- and legroom. The BMW M5 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi S6.

Convenience
With the Audi S6 you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the BMW M5, 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 BMW M5 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Audi S6, 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 M5 will cost more in transportation costs than the Audi S6.

Dimensions
The BMW M5 is about the same width as the Audi S6. When looking at overall length, the BMW M5 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Audi S6.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the BMW M5 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Audi S6.

Handling
The BMW M5 has about the same turning radius as the Audi S6, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW M5 has a much more powerful engine than the Audi S6. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW M5 and the Audi S6. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the BMW M5 as you will in the Audi S6.

Warranty
The BMW M5 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Audi S6.
