Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi A5 than the BMW 430. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Audi A5, drivers may find the BMW 430 a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi A5 as you will with the BMW 430, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi A5 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the BMW 430.

Dimensions
The Audi A5 is about the same width as the BMW 430. When looking at overall length, the Audi A5 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the BMW 430.

Handling
The Audi A5 has a larger turning radius than the BMW 430, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi A5 is significantly less powerful than the BMW 430. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Powertrain
With its lower torque, the Audi A5 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the BMW 430.

Utility
The Audi A5 offers greater seating capacity than the BMW 430, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.
