Purchasing a new luxury car entails a lot of thinking. When deciding which among the car options you are faced with will be a good buy, you have to make sure you know the factors to consider with the purchase. For those of you who have listed the 2018 Audi S5 and the 2018 Lexus RCF, here is a comparison to help you make the final decision.

Design & Style

Modern and versatile are the words that best describe the design and style of the 2018 Audi S5. Apart from making sure the car is sturdy from the outside, the makers have also made it a point that only the best quality materials are used for its construction. The uncluttered dashboard adds up to the simplicity yet elegance of the interior with more than enough space to accommodate the needs of users.

The great grille design of the 2018 Lexus RCF is something you will clearly take notice of once you see this car down the road. The cabin has also been designed using excellent materials thus making it comparable to that of the Audi S5. But it lacks some important facets inside, the most obvious of which boils down to visibility and usability issues. Comfort is also compromised with the lack of space in the cabin.

Technology & Safety

The 2018 Audi S5 is gifted with Audi's reliable and user-friendly MMI infotainment system. This easy-to-use system comes with logical controls that are easy to operate. Bluetooth interface is also present in this car model. You can also rely on safety driver aids that will surely take you to places without having second thoughts on being safe down the road.

With a luxury car such as the 2018 Lexus RCF, it is never too much to imagine what it has in store for users in terms of technology and safety. It is sad to note that you will not get what you expect from the RCF along this line of comparison. The infotainment system may be there but is in the verge of being useless and definitely lags behind other systems found in other luxury cars out there. Smartphone integration is not supported as well. Screen graphics are very old too.


The 2018 Audi S5 is gifted with a reliable V6, 3.0-liter engine that can produce up to a maximum of 369lb-ft of torque and 354 horsepower. In the case of the 2018 Lexus RCF, the car gets its power from a V8, 5.0-liter engine that is capable of producing an output that can reach as high as 389lb-ft of torque and 467 horsepower. Engine noise comes when you pump gas on the RCF brakes though.

The Bottom Line

The 2018 Audi S5 is more than just beautiful. It is packed with great features that you can never snob. It is also a powerful car that can take you as you travel in many different places. It is definitely worth your investment.
