2014 Audi TT vs. 2015 Mazda MX-5 Miata Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Audi TT, drivers may find the Mazda MX-5 Miata a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the Audi TT you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Mazda MX-5 Miata, due to its larger tank size and better 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 Audi TT will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Mazda MX-5 Miata, 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 Audi TT will cost more in transportation costs than the Mazda MX-5 Miata.

Dimensions
Since the Audi TT is much wider than the Mazda MX-5 Miata, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Audi TT, which is slightly longer than the Mazda MX-5 Miata.

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 Mazda MX-5 Miata.

Handling
The Audi TT has a significantly larger turning radius than the Mazda MX-5 Miata, making it much 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 Mazda MX-5 Miata.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi TT and the Mazda MX-5 Miata. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Audi TT will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mazda MX-5 Miata.
