2016 Audi TT vs. 2016 Volkswagen Golf R Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volkswagen Golf R than the Audi TT, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Audi TT, drivers may find the Volkswagen Golf R a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi TT as you will with the Volkswagen Golf R, 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). The Audi TT is somewhat more expensive than the Volkswagen Golf R. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Audi TT is much higher than that for the Volkswagen Golf R.

Dimensions
The Audi TT is a little wider than the Volkswagen Golf R, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. The Audi TT is slightly shorter than the Volkswagen Golf R, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Audi TT doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volkswagen Golf R.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi TT is significantly less powerful than the Volkswagen Golf R. 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 Volkswagen Golf R, making the Volkswagen Golf R the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Audi TT has significantly less cargo room than the Volkswagen Golf R, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

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