Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi TT as you will with the Porsche 718 Boxster, 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). Based on MSRP, the Audi TT is clearly a better financial choice over the Porsche 718 Boxster. 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 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Porsche 718 Boxster.

Dimensions
The Audi TT is a little wider than the Porsche 718 Boxster, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. The Audi TT is slightly shorter than the Porsche 718 Boxster, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Audi TT doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Porsche 718 Boxster.

Handling
The Audi TT has a smaller turning radius than the Porsche 718 Boxster, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi TT is significantly less powerful than the Porsche 718 Boxster. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi TT and the Porsche 718 Boxster. The Audi TT has significantly less cargo room than the Porsche 718 Boxster, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Audi TT comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Porsche 718 Boxster.
