2018 Audi TT vs. 2018 Mercedes Benz SLC

There are a lot of car models from Audi and Mercedes Benz that will surely melt your hearts out. Among them are the 2018 Audi TT and the 2018 Mercedes Benz SLC. Get to know these two further by reading the comparison. From here, you will find out which one dominates the other based on design, tech and safety features, as well as performance.

Design & Style

In the world of convertibles, you will be fascinated by the fact that the 2018 Audi TT and the 2018 Mercedes Benz SLC exists. These two cars are very much similar when it comes to their rugged and modern look on the outside. Inside, we shall give high marks to both these cars too at least in terms of the quality of materials used to build the cabin.

Notably, the difference lies in some of the inclusions like that of the provision of a glass roof in the 2018 Mercedes Benz SLC which allows the sun's rays to get in especially during a hot summer's day. Availing of the optional Magic Sky Control can be a solution to this problem though. In the case of the 2018 Audi TT, you will place it even more because the dashboard has been freed from clutter. Even the inclusion of functional air vent bezels will make you praise this car model even more.

Technology & Safety

The 2018 Mercedes Benz SLC has some fair share of great technology and safety features, the most notable of which is the presence of a 7-inch display. This same feature, however, is not as feature-rich as those found in other systems, including that of what you will find in the 2018 Audi TT.

Having said that about this car model, you can expect more from the Audi too when it comes to technology and safety aspects. The presence of secondary system controls as well as audio and navigation systems allow it to be more user-friendly considering the virtual gauge cluster that shows stats and figures relating to such systems. You can also use selective drive modes to your advantage together with adaptive steering.


The 2018 Mercedes Benz SLC is gifted with a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine that produces a powerful total output of 273lb-of torque and 241 horsepower. Using the same engine size, figures may be slightly lower for the 2018 Audi TT but the gap is not that far with the 220 horsepower and 258lb-ft of torque total output of the engine under its hood. Add to that the fact that this performance does not compromise fuel economy.

The Bottom Line

These powerful cars will surely give your money's worth but if you consider all other factors, you will see clearly why the 2018 Audi TT should be your next car.
