Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Audi S5 than in the BMW M4, due to the Audi S5's smaller rear head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Audi S5, drivers may find the BMW M4 a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
The Audi S5 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the BMW M4, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi S5 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the BMW M4. 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 S5 and the BMW M4 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi S5 is a little narrower than the BMW M4, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Audi S5 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the BMW M4.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Audi S5 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the BMW M4.

Handling
The Audi S5 has a smaller turning radius than the BMW M4, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi S5 is significantly less powerful than the BMW M4. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi S5 and the BMW M4. The Audi S5 has significantly less cargo room than the BMW M4, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Audi S5 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW M4.
