2019 Audi S5 vs. 2019 Chevrolet Corvette

The 2019 Audi S5 is an intriguing midrange luxury sport coupe that had a full redesign last year. The 2019 version has changes that only made it more eligible to prove how engaging and high-performing it is in its class.

Showing a lot of potentials is the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette. It is a compliant ride that has the looks to slay its competition. The Corvette got a major overhaul for this year and we can't wait to compare it against the equally gorgeous S5.

Design & Style

The new S5 is a flamboyant display of style and luxury. The current styling leans on creating an athletic stance which made it look great at all angles. The cabin is unsurprisingly posh with all the fine materials used. One of the best things about the latest S5 is that the owner has plenty of style customization options. One of the most recommended deluxe upgrades is the Alcantara seating surfaces and the diamond stitching details.

The latest Corvette, on the other hand, is decorated with a lot of scoops and wings. Although most would be impressed by the brawny details, it looks like there are too many things going on and can be overwhelming to the senses. 

Technology & Safety

The high-tech features of the S5's infotainment system are easy to use with the remarkable virtual instrument panel. The navigation system is also easy to operate and has clear graphics. Aside from the impressive audio and navigation systems, the S5 is equipped with well-tuned driver aids. The sensors are not overly sensitive and are quite adept at adjusting to current traffic.

It is frustrating how everything is off for the Corvette's infotainment and safety features. They are there but they are not sufficiently impressive.

Performance

Under the hood of all S5 trims is a 3.0-liter V6 engine for an awe-inspiring 349 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque.  The car is very intuitive and delivers the best driver engagement and performance. Acceleration is smooth and it has an incredible road-holding capability.

The Corvette is very aggressive with its V8 engine. Its steering is nicely weighted and precise. It is, however, noticeable how difficult it is to determine if the driver is already approaching the limits. This results from the lack of road feel from the steering wheel.

The Bottom Line

The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette is impressive but it missed on a lot of key features, especially on the tech front. If it was able to come up with more decent infotainment, then maybe it can be among the top class in its segment. As for the 2019 Audi S5, everything about it is commendable. One can easily see how well-rounded the S5 is with its slinky exterior, advanced tech features, and the exciting road performance.
