2016 BMW M6 vs. 2016 Audi S5 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the BMW M6 than in the Audi S5, due to the BMW M6's smaller rear head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Audi S5, the BMW M6 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 M6 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 M6 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 M6 will cost more in transportation costs than the Audi S5.

Dimensions
Since the BMW M6 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 M6, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Audi S5.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the BMW M6 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Audi S5.

Handling
The BMW M6 has a larger turning radius than the Audi S5, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW M6 has a much more powerful engine than the Audi S5. 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 M6 and the Audi S5. The BMW M6 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Audi S5.

Warranty
The BMW M6 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Audi S5.
