2009 Audi TT 2.0T quattro 2dr Hatchback AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)
This car loves corners. It is fun to drive and makes my commute to work enjoyable. I decided on the Audi over Porsche, BMW, Lexus, Infiniti and have enjoyed the decision daily. Consistently surprised at how quickly I get up to traffic speed with torque to spare when I want to pass someone. Brakes are quick to engage without being too grippy. My wife and I had no plans to take our girls in it, but they love it. Lots of fun to drop off at school surrounded by monster SUVs and minivans. Booster shopping was a challenge. For as small and low as the car is, there has not been a grocery or Costco run it has not yet been able to handle. Thoroughly enjoying my mid-life crisis mobile.
Quattro: great cornering, holds the road with no tire noise. Sport mode: won't shift until it hits redline, and great throttle growl Interior: luxury car feel inside (enhanced leather package). Steering wheel: good feel, like the flat bottom.
Door swing: I have to open the door wide to easily get in and out, requiring a little more hunting for the best parking spot. Bluetooth: Connects easily, others complain about difficulty hearing me through it. Small item storage: two cupholders does not give enough space for small items.
