Comparison Review

Comfort
As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Audi A5 and the Jaguar F-TYPE in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi A5 as you will with the Jaguar F-TYPE, 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 Jaguar F-TYPE. 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 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jaguar F-TYPE.

Dimensions
Since the Audi A5 is much slimmer than the Jaguar F-TYPE, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Audi A5, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Jaguar F-TYPE.

Handling
The Audi A5 has a larger turning radius than the Jaguar F-TYPE, 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 Jaguar F-TYPE. 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 Jaguar F-TYPE, 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 Jaguar F-TYPE, 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 Jaguar F-TYPE.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Audi A5 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Jaguar F-TYPE.
