The Audi TT was built to satisfy drivers looking for a variety of choices in their engines. These choices cover everything from the sensible entry-level petrol engines to the high velocity 335bhp 2.5 RS model. The previous model’s 3.2-litre V6 engine was retained in the newer model as well, but goes at a faster pace thanks to vehicle’s lightweight aluminum body.
The lightweight combined with any of the high powered engines lets a 250bhp 3.2 quattro gain 62mph in just 5.9 seconds, while the 2.0 FTSI model boasts of 200bhp. There’s also the TTS from 2008, which fits in with a 272bhp 2.0-litre turbocharged engine. This power package goes towards 60mph at a shorter 5.4 seconds and can go up to 155mph.
The RS model is advised for anyone after firepower. The peak torque of its 332lb ft goes as low as 1600 rpm up to 5300 rpm. With a smooth revving engine, all-wheel-drive taction, and a close-stacked spread of six gears, you’ll be enjoying every gear shifting into three figure speeds. Sprints that start at 30 to 70 mph can be done in just 4.4 seconds, while an all out 60 mph can be done in just 4.7 seconds. Whether you’re after a steady or fast ride, the Audi TT delivers in gaining every speed imaginable. You can also see which equipment is specific to the TT series various generations and models.
The current Audi TT is much wider, taller, and longer than the older generations, with an aggressive theme replacing a simpler design. The body is composed of 31 per cent steel and 69 per cent aluminum, both of which work to lessen the overall weight and even out the weight distribution.
The interior design is similar to the exterior. Once you sit on the driver’s seat, the dashboard faces you at the front and the leather steering wheel is easy to reach. The console is angled conveniently and the dials are crafted to adjust for speed and revs. Surfaces, switches, and dials sport a clean finish and also include a TT set for heating and ventilation control. You’ll soon grow accustomed to the comfort and luxury of the Audi TT interior. The RS models offer certain improvements such as a lightweight, twin strip interior door, RS-badged instruments, heavily bolstered front seats, and a thicker sports steering wheel.
Unfortunately the Audi TT colors don’t work out as well, as the structural design would work better with a metallic finish. Solid colors don’t complement the metalwork shape, as seen in the hollowed out sides, rear bumper, and shoulder line. You might want to prioritize getting a silver or chrome colored Audi TT to highlight these designs.
Unfortunately rear seat room is not too accommodating, with more of the room found up front. Rear seats are still only for occasional use and better folded so that there is room for your luggage. Boot space goes up to 700 litres from the boot end to the front seat backs. Expect to only accommodate one passenger in this car. It is strictly a two-seater that measures 250-litres for both parties. The only downside to the interior is its plain black color scheming.
