Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volkswagen Golf GTI than the Audi TT, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Audi TT, drivers may find the Volkswagen Golf GTI a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi TT as you will with the Volkswagen Golf GTI, 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 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Volkswagen Golf GTI, 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 Audi TT will cost more in transportation costs than the Volkswagen Golf GTI.

Dimensions
The Audi TT is a little wider than the Volkswagen Golf GTI, 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 Volkswagen Golf GTI, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Audi TT and the Volkswagen Golf GTI do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Performance
The Audi TT has less horsepower than the Volkswagen Golf GTI, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
The Audi TT has less seating than the Volkswagen Golf GTI, making the Volkswagen Golf GTI the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Audi TT has significantly less cargo room than the Volkswagen Golf GTI, 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 Volkswagen Golf GTI.
