Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Audi A5 than in the BMW M240, due to the Audi A5's smaller rear head- and legroom. The BMW M240 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A5.

Convenience
The Audi A5 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the BMW M240, 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 M240. 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 M240 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Audi A5 is much wider than the BMW M240, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Audi A5, which is slightly longer than the BMW M240.

Drivetrain
The Audi A5 has much less torque than the BMW M240, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Audi A5 has a larger turning radius than the BMW M240, 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 M240. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi A5 and the BMW M240. The Audi A5 has significantly less cargo room than the BMW M240, 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 M240.
