Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi TT offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Lexus RC 300 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Lexus RC 300 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 Audi TT as you will with the Lexus RC 300, 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 Audi TT is somewhat more expensive than the Lexus RC 300. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Audi TT and the Lexus RC 300 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi TT is about the same width as the Lexus RC 300. If you go with the Audi TT, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Lexus RC 300.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Audi TT transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Lexus RC 300.

Performance
The Audi TT has less horsepower than the Lexus RC 300, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi TT and the Lexus RC 300. The Audi TT has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Lexus RC 300.

Warranty
The Audi TT comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus RC 300.
