2017 Nissan GT-R 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 Nissan GT-R than the Audi S5. The Nissan GT-R will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi S5.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Nissan GT-R 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 Nissan GT-R 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 Destination Charge for the Nissan GT-R is much higher than that for the Audi S5.

Dimensions
Since the Nissan GT-R is much wider than the Audi S5, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Nissan GT-R takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Audi S5.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Nissan GT-R transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Audi S5.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Nissan GT-R 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 Nissan GT-R has less seating than the Audi S5, making the Audi S5 the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Nissan GT-R has significantly less cargo room than the Audi S5, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Nissan GT-R is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Audi S5.
