2018 Audi A3 vs. 2018 Audi TT Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Audi TT, the Audi A3 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi A3 as you will with the Audi TT, 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). Based on MSRP, the Audi A3 is clearly a better financial choice over the Audi TT. 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 A3 and the Audi TT have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
If you go with the Audi A3, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Audi TT.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Audi A3 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Audi TT.

Handling
The Audi A3 has a larger turning radius than the Audi TT, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Audi A3 has less horsepower than the Audi TT, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
The Audi A3 offers greater seating capacity than the Audi TT, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Audi A3 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Audi TT.

Warranty
The Audi A3 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Audi TT.
