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 S5 than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Audi S5 and the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43 in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi S5 as you will with the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, 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). The Audi S5 is somewhat more expensive than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43.

The Audi S5 and the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43 have similar Destination Charges.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Audi S5 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43.

Handling
The Audi S5 has a smaller turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.
