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

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi TTS.

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 SLK-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 SLK-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 SLK-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi TTS is a little wider than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class, 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 TTS takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mercedes-Benz SLK-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 SLK-Class.

Handling
The Audi TTS has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Audi TTS has less horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-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 SLK-Class. The Audi TTS has less cargo capacity than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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