2014 FIAT 500c vs. 2014 Audi A5 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The FIAT 500c offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Audi A5 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Audi A5 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the FIAT 500c.

Convenience
With the Audi A5 you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the FIAT 500c, 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). Based on MSRP, the FIAT 500c is clearly a better financial choice over the Audi A5. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the FIAT 500c will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Audi A5.

Dimensions
Since the FIAT 500c is much slimmer than the Audi A5, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the FIAT 500c, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Audi A5.

Drivetrain
The FIAT 500c has much less torque than the Audi A5, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The FIAT 500c has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Audi A5, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the FIAT 500c is significantly less powerful than the Audi A5. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the FIAT 500c and the Audi A5. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the FIAT 500c will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Audi A5.

Warranty
The FIAT 500c comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Audi A5.
