2014 Porsche Panamera vs. 2014 Audi RS 5 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 Porsche Panamera than the Audi RS 5. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Porsche Panamera and the Audi RS 5 in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Porsche Panamera you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Audi RS 5, due to its larger tank size and better 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). The Porsche Panamera 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 Destination Charge for the Porsche Panamera is much higher than that for the Audi RS 5.

Dimensions
Since the Porsche Panamera is much wider than the Audi RS 5, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Porsche Panamera, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Audi RS 5.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Porsche Panamera transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Audi RS 5.

Handling
The Porsche Panamera has a larger turning radius than the Audi RS 5, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Porsche Panamera has less horsepower than the Audi RS 5, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Porsche Panamera and the Audi RS 5. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Porsche Panamera will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Audi RS 5.

Warranty
The Porsche Panamera comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Audi RS 5.
