2016 Audi TT vs. 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi TT.

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Audi TT, making it more convenient to drive.

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 TT is clearly a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. 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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Audi TT is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, 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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Drivetrain
The Audi TT has much less torque than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi TT is significantly less powerful than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The Audi TT has less seating than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, making the Mercedes-Benz E-Class the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers.

Warranty
The Audi TT comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
