2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class vs. 2015 Audi TT Review

Comparison Review

Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Audi TT, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class as you will with the Audi TT, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Audi TT, 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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class and the Audi TT have similar Destination Charges.

Since the Mercedes-Benz E-Class is much slimmer than the Audi TT, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Audi TT.

Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Audi TT.

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

When it comes to horsepower, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class has a much more powerful engine than the Audi TT. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class offers greater seating capacity than the Audi TT, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Audi TT.

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