Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Audi A5 than in the BMW 430, due to the Audi A5's smaller rear head- and legroom. The BMW 430 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A5.

Convenience
The BMW 430 requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Audi A5, making it more convenient to drive.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi A5 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the BMW 430. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Audi A5 and the BMW 430 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi A5 is a little wider than the BMW 430, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Audi A5 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the BMW 430.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Audi A5 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the BMW 430.

Handling
The Audi A5 has a smaller turning radius than the BMW 430, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Audi A5 and the BMW 430.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi A5 and the BMW 430. The Audi A5 has significantly less cargo room than the BMW 430, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Audi A5 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 430.
