2019 Audi TT vs. Its Competition

2019 Audi TT image

The small luxury sports car market is relatively tiny, but the TT has a few competitors from both above and below its price bracket.

The Mercedes-Benz SLC-Class is available in roadster form only and is in its last year ever with a dated interior and platform and no replacement on the horizon.

Porsche’s 718 Boxster roadster and Cayman coupe are on the high end of the TT’s price range but offer mid-engine performance pedigree like none other in this class.

The Mazda MX-5 Miata can’t quite hold up to Audi’s quality or luxury features but excels at providing smiles-per-mile.

The Alfa Romeo 4C is even lower-volume than the TT and comes with Italian quirks (and problems) but is hands-down the most unique of the bunch and a lot of fun.

A well-equipped Ford Mustang GT challenges the TTS and even RS for performance at a significant bargain with a bit more usability.

Quick Specs
The 2019 Audi TT isn’t the most exciting sports car, but with impressive tech, performance models, and all-wheel-drive, it’s very well-rounded.
The 2019 Ford Mustang finally gets it: Muscle-car power doesn’t have to come with muscle-car handling compromises.
The 2019 Mazda MX-5 keeps the crown of “affordable and fun” with a more potent engine this year.
The 2019 Mercedes-Benz SLC-Class splits its mission between top-down cruiser and top-up thrill seeker.
The 2019 Porsche 718 may never be the champion of the automaker’s lineup, but it’s a champ everywhere else.
If you’re looking for Italian performance and character at a (somewhat) reasonable price, look no further than the 2019 Alfa Romeo 4C. Just don’t expect to be particularly comfortable.
