Audi TT Car Reviews

The new TT has more of a sporty, aggressive appearance than its predecessor, and is an improvement in many ways. It is a little larger, but lighter, and the result is an improved interior space, with more responsive handling. Two models are offered, a coupe and a convertible. The coupe comes as 2+2, while the convertible is purely a 2-seater. Both models are available in standard, TTS and TT RS variations.

Audi TT Overview

There is a range of engines to choose from, the 1.8 litre and 2.0 litre petrol units and a 2.0 litre diesel are available in the standard TT. There is a tuned 270bhp 2.0 litre petrol engine in the TTS and a 335bhp 2.5 litre petrol unit in the TT RS. The flexible 2.0 litre petrol engine is the pick in the standard TT, but the diesel can give over 50mpg combined. This excellent economy, combined with the brisk performance it gives is testament to the TT’s ability to offer a gentle sedate ride one minute and a thrilling experience when you put your foot down.


For two passengers, the cabin is the perfect size, lots of head and legroom, but in the coupe the back seats leave a lot to be desired. They are more suitable for children, or an uncomfortable journey for whoever draws the short straw. The cabin is larger than in the previous model; however leg-room in the back is still very limited. The back seats can be folded down to extend the boot space to 700 litres, which is very useful for a sporty coupe.


The interior is as well-designed as any Audi, with only the best materials being used. All the surfaces ooze class, and the layout of the dash is clear and easy to use.

Background

The TT was introduced in 1998 although the concept car first appeared in 1995. It is built on the Volkswagen Group A platform, which has also been used to develop cars such as the VW Golf, Audi A3 and the Seat Leon to name a few. Initially it was only available as a 2+2 coupe, but in the following year a 2-seater roadster was introduced.


The second generation launched in 2006 and was again offered as a coupe and roadster. The new design featured sleeker lines with the model being both wider and longer than the original. The TTS debuted at the North American International Auto Show in 2008 and the TT RS at the Geneva Auto Show the following year.

Summary

The TT is an affordable sports car that is great to look at, drive and because of its relatively low price and choice of efficient engines, it’s great to own too. It’s because of these reasons that it has become such a successful, desirable car.
