2013 BMW M3 vs. 2013 Audi TTS Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Audi TTS, the BMW M3 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the Audi TTS you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the BMW M3, 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 BMW M3 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Audi TTS, 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 BMW M3 and the Audi TTS have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW M3 is much slimmer than the Audi TTS, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the BMW M3, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Audi TTS.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the BMW M3 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Audi TTS.

Handling
The BMW M3 has a larger turning radius than the Audi TTS, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW M3 has a much more powerful engine than the Audi TTS. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The BMW M3 offers greater seating capacity than the Audi TTS, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the BMW M3 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Audi TTS.

Warranty
The BMW M3 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Audi TTS.
