2016 BMW M6 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 M6 than the Audi S5. 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 and the Audi S5 have similar Destination Charges.

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. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the BMW M6, which is slightly longer than 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
The BMW M6 has less seating than the Audi S5, making the Audi S5 the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The BMW M6 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 M6 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Audi S5.
