Tires and Wheels

The TT 45 TSFI’s standard tires provide better handling because they have a lower 40 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the F-Type’s standard 45 series front tires. The TTS/RS’ optional tires have a lower 30 series profile than the F-Type’s optional 35 series front tires.

Suspension and Handling

The TT has standard front gas-charged shocks for better control over choppy roads. The F-Type’s suspension doesn’t offer gas-charged shocks.

The TT RS Coupe handles at 1.05 G’s, while the F-Type R-Dynamic Coupe pulls only .98 G’s of cornering force in a Car and Driver skidpad test.

The TT 2.0 TSFI Roadster handles at .99 G’s, while the F-Type R Convertible pulls only .98 G’s of cornering force in a Motor Trend skidpad test.

The TT RS Coupe executes Motor Trend’s “Figure Eight” maneuver 1.7 seconds quicker than the F-Type P300 Coupe (23.7 seconds @ .85 average G’s vs. 25.4 seconds @ .73 average G’s).

For better maneuverability, the TT’s turning circle is .2 feet tighter than the F-Type’s (34.8 feet vs. 35 feet). The TT RS Coupe’s turning circle is 1 foot tighter than the F-Type AWD’s (36 feet vs. 37 feet).


The TT is 11.2 inches shorter than the F-Type SVR, making the TT easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces. The TT is 11.5 inches shorter than the F-Type.

The design of the Audi TT amounts to more than styling. The TT offers aerodynamic coefficients of drag from .3 to .32 Cd (depending on bodystyle and options). That is significantly lower than the F-Type (.35 to .36). A more efficient exterior helps the TT go faster and keeps the interior quieter. It also helps the TT get better fuel mileage.

As tested by Car and Driver, the interior of the TT 2.0 TSFI Coupe is quieter than the F-Type R-Dynamic Coupe:

Passenger Space

Servicing Ease

J.D. Power and Associates surveys of service recipients show that Audi service is better than Jaguar. J.D. Power ranks Audi 8th in service department satisfaction (above the industry average). With a 32% lower rating, Jaguar is ranked 20th.


Heated windshield washer nozzles are standard on the TT to prevent washer fluid and nozzles from freezing and help continue to keep the windshield clear in sub-freezing temperatures. The F-Type doesn’t offer heated windshield washer nozzles.

With standard voice command, the TT offers the driver hands free control of the radio and the navigation computer by simply speaking. The F-Type doesn’t offer a voice control system.
