2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class vs. 2017 Audi TT Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi TT than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Mercedes-Benz E-Class will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi TT.

Convenience
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.

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 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 will cost more in transportation costs than the Audi TT.

Dimensions
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is a little wider than the Audi TT, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. 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.

Drivetrain
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.

Performance
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.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and the Audi TT. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Audi TT.

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