Overview of the Audi TT

Engines and performance for the Audi TT

The Audi TT offers drivers the choice of 2.0 litre petrol engines with two outputs of either 197 bhp or 245 bhp. The engines are mated to either a six-speed manual box or a seven-speed automatic transmission. Economy for the engines is around 40 mpg, which is quite good for a sports coupe. Even the entry-level TT will sprint from 0 to 62 mph in 6.6 seconds with the top model, the TT 45 TFSI featuring quattro all-wheel-drive and an engine producing 245 bhp doing the same sprint in 5.8 seconds - the TT RS offers a blistering time of less than four seconds!

Equipment and handling

Along with its stylish good looks, the Audi TT has been a popular choice with British drivers for 20 years now. Behind the wheel, the steering is responsive and it's an easy car to manoeuvre around town - it's also very comfortable for long journeys on motorways. To enjoy the Audi TT at its very best, the car features a range of driving modes. Selecting dynamic mode delivers exceptional levels of performance, particularly in the middle of the revs range. All versions deliver lots of grip and for those who want excellent traction on a range of surfaces, then the quattro model is the one for you. The top speed is 155 mph and the TT is available as a coupe, roadster or the TT RS. The manual gearbox is pleasant to use but the automatic transmission really does deliver smooth performance. And while the TT has two doors, it's a practical and modern car for those wanting to enjoy decent sports car performance and handling. A revamp in 2019 led to the engines being upgraded, more equipment being added and some exterior styling tweaks. Standard kit for the TT includes rear parking sensors, while front sensors are an option, and Audi adds a DAB radio, climate control and leather seats. There's also smartphone connectivity and other models feature larger alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights, while the flagship models have sporty bodywork added. Other options include automatic climate control and a rear view camera - which some drivers may find useful - plus Internet access and music streaming. The interior for the TT is exceptional and Audi is still the class leader for cabin design. The TT also features the firm's virtual cockpit, so there are no traditional dials. Instead, drivers get a TFT screen that displays the relevant performance data for the car and there's satnav included. While the front seats are comfortable for adults, the rear seats are only suitable for children though the seats fold down easily to make the boot even larger. Essentially, the Audi TT builds on its previous sales success to offer a car that is easy to drive and is comfortable for long distances – it is a practical and fun sports coupe offering.
