With the Audi A5 you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the smart fortwo electric drive, 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 smart fortwo electric drive is clearly a better financial choice over the Audi A5.
