Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi A8 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the BMW 740 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Audi A8, drivers may find the BMW 740 a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi A8 as you will with the BMW 740, 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). Whether you pick the Audi A8 or the BMW 740, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 A8 and the BMW 740 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Audi A8 is much wider than the BMW 740, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Audi A8 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the BMW 740.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Audi A8 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the BMW 740.

Handling
The Audi A8 has about the same turning radius as the BMW 740, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Audi A8 and the BMW 740.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi A8 and the BMW 740. The Audi A8 has significantly less cargo room than the BMW 740, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Audi A8 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 740.
