Comparison Review

Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Audi A5, drivers may find the Chevrolet Corvette 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 Chevrolet Corvette, 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). Based on MSRP, the Audi A5 is clearly a better financial choice over the Chevrolet Corvette. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Audi A5 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Chevrolet Corvette.

Dimensions
Since the Audi A5 is much slimmer than the Chevrolet Corvette, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Audi A5 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Chevrolet Corvette.

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

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

Utility
The Audi A5 offers greater seating capacity than the Chevrolet Corvette, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Audi A5 has significantly less cargo room than the Chevrolet Corvette, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Audi A5 than that of the Chevrolet Corvette.
