2017 Mercedes-Benz SLC vs 2017 Audi TT
If you have already narrowed down your search to the 2017 Mercedes-Benz SLC and the Audi TT, there are a few things we can already decipher about you. Curvy roads make you smile. Getting to your destination is just a perk of getting behind the wheel. You have a secret spot outside of town where you just drive around. If any of these things sound like you, these two cars are exactly what you need. Which one you choose, however, depends on whether you want affordable speed or luxurious power.
By use of a measuring stick, you will find that these two sports cars are very similar in size. From wheelbase to height, these cars are perfect competitors. In fact, they both feature a 2.0L turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine, which has proven to be one of the most popular engine configurations of the last 20 years. The Mercedes-Benz comes with more power and torque, but the TT is lighter, bringing us back to equilibrium.

Mercedes-Benz SLC Luxury Interior
The main advantage the SLC has over the TT is luxury. Not to say the TT doesn't have a nice interior, but the Mercedes-Benz just has that little extra that you can only get with a Mercedes-Benz. It does not have a back-seat option like the TT, but it does have a completely retractable hard-top roof. Even as a convertible, the TT comes with a soft-top roof, jeopardizing stability and overall comfort.
The magic of Mercedes-Benz also means that the SLC is fully loaded with all the latest driving-assistance features and infotainment options. This includes DISTRONIC PLUS, DYNAMIC SELECT, and PRESAFE® PLUS, to name a few. The bottom line is that the Mercedes-Benz SLC Roadster comes with more standard features. Some you may have heard of, others might be brand new. The TT does not have as many gadgets, but it does have a quicker 0-60 time, so the choice is yours; more luxury or .6 seconds faster to 60.
