2013 Audi TT RS vs. 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz C-Class than the Audi TT RS, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Audi TT RS and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Mercedes-Benz C-Class you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Audi TT RS, 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 RS will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, 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 RS and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class have similar Destination Charges.

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

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Audi TT RS does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Handling
The Audi TT RS has about the same turning radius as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi TT RS has a much more powerful engine than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

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

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