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 TTS and the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class have similar Destination Charges.

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.
