Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW M2 offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Audi A5. The BMW M2 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A5.

Convenience
With the Audi A5 you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the BMW M2, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 BMW M2 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 BMW M2 and the Audi A5 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW M2 is about the same width as the Audi A5. The BMW M2 is slightly shorter than the Audi A5, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the BMW M2 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Audi A5.

Handling
The BMW M2 has a larger turning radius than the Audi A5, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW M2 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
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW M2 and the Audi A5. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the BMW M2 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Audi A5.
