2017 Porsche Panamera vs. 2018 Audi S5 Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
With the Porsche Panamera you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Audi S5, 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 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 Porsche Panamera will cost more in transportation costs than the Audi S5.

Dimensions
Since the Porsche Panamera is much wider than the Audi S5, 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 S5.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Porsche Panamera transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Audi S5.

Handling
The Porsche Panamera has about the same turning radius as the Audi S5, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Porsche Panamera is somewhat more powerful than the Audi S5.

Utility
The Porsche Panamera has less seating than the Audi S5, making the Audi S5 the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Porsche Panamera will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Audi S5.

Warranty
The Porsche Panamera comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Audi S5.
