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 A7 than the Audi A5. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Audi A7 and the Audi A5 in the front seats.

Convenience
The Audi A7 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Audi A5, making it more convenient to drive.

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 A7 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Audi A5, 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 A7 and the Audi A5 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Audi A7 is much wider than the Audi A5, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Audi A7, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Audi A5.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Audi A7 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Audi A5.

Handling
The Audi A7 has a smaller turning radius than the Audi A5, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi A7 has a much more powerful engine than the Audi A5. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The Audi A7 offers greater seating capacity than the Audi A5, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.

Warranty
The Audi A7 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Audi A5.
