The TT coupe and convertible use a 228-hp, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine; the TTS features a 288-hp version. The six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission swaps gears quickly, but some vibration is noticeable at very low speeds. The car feels nimble and entertaining, diving into corners with enthusiasm and a dash of steering feedback. The ride is quite firm but not punishing, and noise is kept at bay. Inside the snug interior is Audi's digital instrument panel, which incorporates all gauges and displays, and eliminates the center-dash screen. HVAC and seat-heat controls are incorporated into the different dash vents. Overall, the TT is more about style and technology than visceral sporty performance. There is also a 396-hp, 2.5-liter five-cylinder turbo RS performance version.

2016 Redesign Year
Audi TT 2018
Through most of its life the TT has been offered as a coupe or convertible with front- or all-wheel drive. Though artfully styled and well finished, handling isn't as sporty as competitors like the Porsche Boxster or Honda S2000 of the era. The standard engine was a noisy 180-hp turbo four-cylinder matched with a five-speed manual. AWD models got a gutsier but still-noisy 225-hp engine and six-speed manual. The ride was very stiff and visibility poor. A 250-hp V6 with a six-speed automatic or automatic-shifting manual arrived in 2004. The TT's 2008 redesign gave it crisper handling and a less punishing ride. Power now came from a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder or a 3.2-liter V6 (dropped after 2009) and a higher-output 2.0-liter turbo Four.

The TT's 2008 redesign gave it crisper handling and a less punishing ride. Power comes from a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, a 3.2-liter V6 (which was dropped after 2009), or a higher-output 2.0-liter turbo four. Owing to its VW Golf roots, the TT can never really be considered a sports car, but it does have its high points in terms of overall dynamics. The 2012 update brought even better handling and more impressive limits. As always, the interior is outstanding in terms of quality and distinctly designed. Heated seats were made standard for 2015.

Audi TT 2006
Throughout most of its life, the TT has been offered as a coupe or convertible with front- or all-wheel drive. Though the early models are artfully styled and well finished, handling isn't exactly up to the standards of sports cars. For the initial versions of the car, the standard engine was a noisy 180-hp turbo four-cylinder matched with a five-speed manual. AWD models got a gutsier, but still-noisy 225-hp engine and a six-speed manual transmission. Ride quality is very stiff and owing to the handsome, but closed-in styling, outward visibility is poor. A 250-hp V6 with a choice of a six-speed automatic transmission, or an automated manual arrived in 2004.
