Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi A5 than the Toyota 86. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Audi A5 and the Toyota 86 in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Audi A5 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Toyota 86, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Toyota 86, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 Toyota 86.

Dimensions
Since the Audi A5 is much wider than the Toyota 86, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. 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 Toyota 86.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Audi A5 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Toyota 86.

Handling
The Audi A5 has a larger turning radius than the Toyota 86, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi A5 and the Toyota 86. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Audi A5 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Toyota 86.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Audi A5 than that of the Toyota 86.
