2014 Audi TT vs. 2015 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class 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 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class, 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 TT is clearly a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz SLK-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 SLK-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi TT is a little wider than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Audi TT takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Audi TT doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class.

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

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

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi TT and the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class. The Audi TT has less cargo capacity than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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