2013 Audi TT RS vs. 2013 BMW M3 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW M3 than the Audi TT RS, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Audi TT RS, drivers may find the BMW M3 a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
The Audi TT RS will require fewer stops at the gas station than the BMW M3, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi TT RS will have less of an impact on your bank account than the BMW M3. 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 RS and the BMW M3 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Audi TT RS is much wider than the BMW M3, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Audi TT RS, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the BMW M3.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Audi TT RS transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the BMW M3.

Handling
The Audi TT RS has a smaller turning radius than the BMW M3, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Audi TT RS has less horsepower than the BMW M3, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi TT RS and the BMW M3. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Audi TT RS will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the BMW M3.

Warranty
The Audi TT RS comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW M3.
