2015 Jaguar XK vs. 2014 Audi RS 5 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi RS 5 than the Jaguar XK, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Jaguar XK and the Audi RS 5 in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jaguar XK as you will with the Audi RS 5, 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 Jaguar XK will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Audi RS 5, 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 Jaguar XK and the Audi RS 5 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Jaguar XK is a little wider than the Audi RS 5, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Jaguar XK, which is slightly longer than the Audi RS 5.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Jaguar XK does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Audi RS 5.

Handling
The Jaguar XK has a smaller turning radius than the Audi RS 5, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Jaguar XK is somewhat more powerful than the Audi RS 5.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Jaguar XK and the Audi RS 5. The Jaguar XK has less cargo capacity than the Audi RS 5, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Jaguar XK comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Audi RS 5.
