The Audi TT S and the Alfa Romeo 4C are both sportscars, but the two couldn’t be much more different. The 4C is an unapologetic two-seater sportscar with a loud exhaust and a stiff carbon tub, while the TTS has four-seats, Audi’s advanced ‘Virtual Cockpit’ display system, magnetic ride suspension and more.
In short, the 4C is the hot tempered Italian you’d expect it to be, while the TT S fills the equally as typical role of the sensible German. Motor Trend recently set out to find out which of these two sub-$100k sportscars is best in their Head 2 Head video series, driving both on road and track before reporting their findings.
MT brings up a good point in their review, saying you could use the TT S as an everyday car, but you couldn’t really use the 4C as a daily driver. The TT S has room for passengers and good amount of space in the hatch, while the 4C can carry one passenger and can’t fit much of anything in its ‘frunk’. On the other hand, these are sportscars, and basing your sportscar purchase off practicality hardly seems sensible.
It’s a tough decision to make, but someone has to do it. See which of these two-doors MT preferred in the video above.
