2014 Audi TT vs. Its Competition

2014 Audi TTS Roadster Competition
Nelson Ireson Nelson Ireson Senior Editor

The Audi TT competes with a broad spectrum of sports and luxury cars, thanks to its between-genres nature.

Mercedes-Benz's SLK is heavier and less athletic, but offers a folding hardtop and its own take on modern style--plus a rorty AMG performance version.

BMW's Z4 is perhaps the closest match for the TT in performance, but the TT is nimbler while the Z4 is more powerful in some forms.

Nissan's 370Z is an affordable alternative with impressive power and performance, though it's not the refined luxury vehicle the TT is.

Finally, there's the Porsche Boxster, the benchmark of the compact luxury sports segment.

Even nimbler than the TT and recently redesigned with a modern, sexy design inside and out, the Boxster is a better sports car--but it's far more expensive.
