Comparison Review

Comfort
The Nissan 370Z 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 Nissan 370Z, 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). The Audi A5 is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan 370Z. 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 will cost more in transportation costs than the Nissan 370Z.

Dimensions
The Audi A5 is about the same width as the Nissan 370Z. 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 Nissan 370Z.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Audi A5 and the Nissan 370Z do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Audi A5 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Nissan 370Z, making it much 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 Nissan 370Z. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The Audi A5 offers greater seating capacity than the Nissan 370Z, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Audi A5 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Nissan 370Z.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Audi A5 than that of the Nissan 370Z.
