2014 Audi TT vs. 2014 Volkswagen Beetle Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Volkswagen Beetle will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi TT.

Convenience
With the Volkswagen Beetle you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Audi TT, due to its tank size and 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 Volkswagen Beetle, 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 Volkswagen Beetle.

Dimensions
The Audi TT is a little wider than the Volkswagen Beetle, 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 Volkswagen Beetle.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Audi TT transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Volkswagen Beetle.

Handling
The Audi TT has about the same turning radius as the Volkswagen Beetle, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi TT has a much more powerful engine than the Volkswagen Beetle. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The Audi TT has less seating than the Volkswagen Beetle, making the Volkswagen Beetle the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Audi TT has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Volkswagen Beetle.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Audi TT than that of the Volkswagen Beetle.
