Comparison Review

Comfort
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi TT.

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Audi TT, making it more convenient to drive.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi TT will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. 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 Mercedes-Benz C-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi TT is a little wider than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, 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 Audi TT, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Audi TT doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Handling
The Audi TT has a smaller turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Audi TT has less horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
The Audi TT has less seating than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, making the Mercedes-Benz C-Class the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Audi TT has less cargo capacity than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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