2013 Audi TTS vs. 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Review

Comparison Review


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

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi TTS as you will with the Mercedes-Benz E-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). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi TTS will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mercedes-Benz E-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 TTS and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Audi TTS is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Audi TTS, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

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

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

Performance
The Audi TTS has less horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, 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 TTS and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Audi TTS will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

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