2014 Audi TT vs. 2014 Lexus IS 250C Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Lexus IS 250C will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi TT.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi TT as you will with the Lexus IS 250C, 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). Whether you pick the Audi TT or the Lexus IS 250C, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 TT and the Lexus IS 250C have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Audi TT is much wider than the Lexus IS 250C, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Audi TT, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Lexus IS 250C.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Audi TT does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Lexus IS 250C.

Handling
The Audi TT has a larger turning radius than the Lexus IS 250C, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi TT is somewhat more powerful than the Lexus IS 250C.

Utility
The Audi TT has less seating than the Lexus IS 250C, making the Lexus IS 250C the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Audi TT has significantly less cargo room than the Lexus IS 250C, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Audi TT comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus IS 250C.
