2016 Nissan 370Z vs 2016 Audi TT
Cool and classic, there is nothing on the street like a tried and true sports car. Sure, there are a lot of pretenders out there that like to dress up as sports cars and have a fun time, but if you’ve got anything more than two doors, two seats and a need for thrills, then you sure as shoot don’t have what it takes. The 2016 Nissan 370Z vs 2016 Audi TT comparison page gives us a look at two of the hottest sports cars on the block today, and just what these two titans are willing to dish out.
As we started talking about before, there are a few prerequisites to being named a sports car, you see. First things first, this needs to be a low-slung two door vehicle, and sure, you can have it be a coupe or a convertible. Next, no great sports car has room in back for riff raff; just two seats up front and nothing more. Finally, and this one isn’t a steadfast rule, but a great sports car should be sending its power to the rear wheels for perfect weight distribution and better overall balance of feel when you are slinging it into corners.
The 2016 370Z: The Sports Car for the People
One of the ways the 370Z is splitting itself apart from the pack is with the powerful 3.7-liter engine it has lying in wait under the hood. As standard, the V6 engine will deliver a whopping 332 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque whereas the Audi TT on the other hand has a measly 2.0-liter powertrain and is only putting out 220 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. And when you put these two side by side, that 100 extra horsepower out of the 370Z is really going to make all the difference in the fun department.
More than just considerably more powerful and quite a lot faster, the Nissan is going to offer quite a bit more room inside as well. With a lot more headroom up front, you aren’t going to be wanting for more space inside the Nissan 370Z, but on the Audi TT? Well, it is really good for shorter people who don’t want to go very fast, that’s for sure. And we can’t forget that pesky all-wheel drive system on the TT either. Compared to the sharp response and sporting heritage of the RWD 370Z, there is just a lackluster sensation to the TT that cannot be ignored.
