2019 Audi TT vs. 2019 Porsche 718 Cayman

Audi and Porsche's fans constantly debate on who has the highest performing sports cars in the market. More than the power of the engine, there are more parameters to check to see which one is the true winner in the sports car category. Here is a closer look at the new 2019 Audi TT and the 2019 Porsche 718 Cayman to arrive at a conclusion.

Design & Style

The style statement of the latest Audi TT has a well-rounded style that preserved the iconic lines of the TT series. It also features an athletic-styled bumper to enhance the sporty vibe. Inside the cabin, it is so fitting to call the driver's seat as the cockpit with the driver-centric styling and refined interior design.

The 2019 Porsche 718 Cayman has a smaller size compared to the most promising Porsche sports car, the 911. With its mid-engine layout, it is easy to appreciate the fine details of its design like the leather interior.

Technology & Safety

Technology is something that Audi prioritizes on every redesign. The 2019 Audi TT is not exempted and is equipped with the Audi virtual cockpit. The MMI infotainment system features a 12.3-inch display where navigation and entertainment information is shown. With the revolutionary handwriting-recognition system, the MMI touchpad became an intuitive control system that is hassle-free to use. Another revolutionary feature is the parking system plus that aids the driver when parking or leaving.

For the 718 Cayman, infotainment is definitely not one of the best. It has a 7-inch screen that is not as flashy as that of the Audi MMI. Among its security features is the anti-lock brake that increases the car's ability to turn even under extreme braking.

Performance

The standard all-wheel drive makes the car capable of all types of weather. The 2.0 Liter TFSI engine is turbocharged to produce 228 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. This power is enough to propel the car from 0-60 in 5.2 seconds. There is also an Audi drive select which allows the driver to adjust the steering feel, throttle response, and even the transmission shift times to have more advantage and take control of the road.

The Porsche 718 Cayman also has a 2.0L engine but it delivers 300 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque. The car has a dynamic powertrain that softly mounts during cruising but also tends to get stiff once the car accelerates.

The Bottom Line

With the exceptionally quick shift times and the sport-inspired driving feel of the 2019 Audi TT, it becomes an exciting car to drive compared to the 718 Cayman. It is not only a solid-performing vehicle but also a stylish one that exudes a luxurious vibe all throughout.
