Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Corvette will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A5.

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. 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 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
People who frequently chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Audi A5 more than the Chevrolet Corvette, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Audi A5 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Chevrolet Corvette.

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