2013 Audi TTS vs. 2013 Volkswagen Golf R Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volkswagen Golf R than the Audi TTS, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Volkswagen Golf R will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi TTS.

Convenience
With the Audi TTS you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Volkswagen Golf R, due to its larger tank size and better 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 TTS will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Volkswagen Golf R, 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 Destination Charge for the Audi TTS is much higher than that for the Volkswagen Golf R.

Dimensions
Since the Audi TTS is much wider than the Volkswagen Golf R, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Audi TTS takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volkswagen Golf R.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Audi TTS transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Volkswagen Golf R.

Handling
The Audi TTS has about the same turning radius as the Volkswagen Golf R, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi TTS is somewhat more powerful than the Volkswagen Golf R.

Utility
The Audi TTS has less seating than the Volkswagen Golf R, making the Volkswagen Golf R the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Audi TTS has significantly less cargo room than the Volkswagen Golf R, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Audi TTS than that of the Volkswagen Golf R.
