Comparison Review

Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Audi S4 than in the BMW 530, due to the Audi S4's smaller rear head- and legroom. The BMW 530 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi S4.

With the BMW 530 you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Audi S4, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi S4 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the BMW 530. 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 S4 will cost more in transportation costs than the BMW 530.

The Audi S4 is a little narrower than the BMW 530, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Audi S4 is slightly shorter than the BMW 530, which may make it easier to park.

The Audi S4 has a smaller turning radius than the BMW 530, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

When it comes to horsepower, the Audi S4 has a much more powerful engine than the BMW 530. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Audi S4 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the BMW 530.

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi S4 and the BMW 530.

The Audi S4 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 530.
