Which TT does Edmunds recommend?

Although there are sportier versions of the TT, such as the TTS and the TT RS, the 2019 Audi TT is only available one way. Leave the car alone to get a competent sport coupe, but as with most Audis, you can option up to your heart's content. We recommend the Technology package for its navigation and audio system and the S line Competition package for its 19-inch wheels, gloss-black trim, fixed rear wing spoiler, and Virtual Cockpit digital display.

Edmunds' Expert Review

Overall rating

Compact, fun to drive and full of modern technology, the 2019 Audi TT is a practical way to have an emotional driving experience. A 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine produces 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque and sends power to all four wheels thanks to Audi's Quattro all-wheel-drive system. New for 2019, a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic means shifts are swift and sure, and it is the same type of transmission found in many supercars.

A short wheelbase, with even shorter overhangs, means Audi has kept the weighty pieces toward the center of the car. That translates to ideal handling manners so that the TT can corner as good as anything on the road. The all-wheel drive and brake-based torque vectoring system keep the TT on its chosen line and give it four-season flexibility.

On the inside, front-seat occupants revel in a cockpit-like interior, with design cues, digital infotainment and dash displays that are shared with the rest of the Audi lineup. The front seats are firm but also well-bolstered to keep you in place when exercising the TT's cornering capability.

Yes, the TT Coupe does have two rear seats but consider them only for additional cargo room or for small children. But that's better than many of the TT's competitors, such as the Jaguar F-Pace and the Porsche Boxster and Cayman, which don't have rear seats. While they all are fun to drive, they all go about it in slightly different ways. The TT is the only one of the bunch with standard all-wheel drive and a rear seat, so if practicality is a gotta-have feature along with your sports car, the TT deserves strong consideration.

2019 Audi TT models

The 2019 Audi TT is offered in a single trim level as either a four-seat Coupe or a two-seat convertible (Roadster). Regardless of roof, the TT is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque and is paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The all-wheel-drive system is standard.

Standard TT Coupe features include 18-inch wheels with summer performance tires, LED headlights, heated auto-dimming mirrors, front and rear parking sensors, automatic wipers, a power-deployed rear spoiler, keyless ignition and entry, selectable drive modes and adaptive steering.

On the inside, you get automatic climate control, a virtual instrument panel, leather and simulated suede upholstery, power-adjustable front seats with heating, folding rear seats, Audi's MMI infotainment system with a trace pad and voice control, a rearview camera, an inductive cellphone charging pad, Bluetooth connectivity, and a nine-speaker audio system with satellite radio and two USB ports.

From here, you can add the Technology package, which includes a navigation system, Audi Connect telematics, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, a blind-spot monitor, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, and a 12-speaker Bang & Olufsen premium audio system. The optional S line competition package enhances the TT with 19-inch wheels, a sport-tuned suspension, special exterior and interior trim, a sport steering wheel and sport seats. You can also get an S sport seats package with full leather upholstery and diamond stitching.

The TT Roadster eliminates the rear seats but gains a center pass-through ski bag along with a power-folding fabric roof, roll hoops and a power-deployable wind blocker.

Trim tested

Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions that are fundamentally similar. The ratings in this review are based on our full test of the Audi TT Quattro Coupe (turbo 2.0L 4-cyl | 6-speed dual-clutch automatic | AWD).

NOTE: Since this test was conducted in 2016, the current TT has received more power, a new seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and additional standard technology features. Our findings remain applicable to this year's TT, however.

Scorecard

Overallundefined / 5

Driving

Previous generations of the TT lagged behind other sports cars in performance and handling precision. But the latest TT, with its strong turbo engine and standard all-wheel-drive system, elevates the dynamics to a level we didn't anticipate. It may not fit the sports-car mold, but it sure acts like one.

Acceleration

The engine's 228 hp isn't a large number, but with 258 lb-ft of torque to exploit, thrust is abundant whether you're driving around town or making a highway pass.

Braking

Great straight-line stability with minimal noise and vibration during panic stops make for a confident braking experience. In our testing, the TT stopped from 60 mph in a short 103 feet.

Steering

Electric assist provides different steering settings tuned to either ease low-speed maneuvering or provide more stability at speed. Road feedback is better than in some of Audi's S models but still falls below what we'd consider ideal.

Handling

Short of putting the TT on a racetrack, its handling is near faultless. The all-wheel-drive system does a beautiful job of keeping the car on the intended line. There's great traction and superb poise through turns.

Drivability

The TT lacks the responsiveness that its non-turbocharged rivals provide, but it operates smoothly overall. The multiple drive modes give distinctly different levels of assist and response, good for cruising to corner carving. Gear changes are quick and smooth.

Comfort

For a car with such a performance bias, there's much comfort to be found in the TT. We wouldn't hesitate to use the TT as a primary commuter vehicle or for a long weekend road trip. But you'll be better served using the TT Coupe's tiny back seats for cargo rather than passengers.

Seat comfort

The optional sport seats have firm but comfortable cushions and a little more lateral support than the base seats. The front seats provide plenty of support and cushioning for hours of comfortable touring.

Ride comfort

The TT's sport-oriented suspension strikes a nice balance between controlling body movement and ride suppleness. An electronically adjustable system, like the one in Audi's TTS model, might provide a more flexible operating range.

Noise & vibration

Summer tires generate some road noise, but otherwise the cabin keeps out the majority of unpleasant sounds. For those who want to hear their machinery's music, Dynamic mode turns up the engine volume channeled into the cabin.

Climate control

The integrated air-vent climate controls are simple yet effective, though the air vane design limits directional adjustability.

Interior

Audi's Virtual Cockpit combines the infotainment screen and gauge cluster into one screen in front of the driver. While this occupies the main stage, the climate controls complete the modern interior look, integrating seamlessly into the air vent bezels on the center of the dash.

Ease of use

A single driver-centric screen helps create a beautifully simple cabin without sacrificing functionality.

Getting in/getting out

The low-slung nature of the TT could provide some challenges for those who aren't used to climbing into sportier vehicles. Otherwise, the narrow doorsills and generous dash clearance provide a wide opening.

Driving position

There are enough adjustments to ensure that tall and short occupants will find a perfect driving position.

Roominess

The TT's 12-way adjustable seats provide a surprising amount of range to accommodate front-seat occupants over 6 feet tall. The coupe's rear seats are for kids only, and even then they'll have minimal legroom. It's best to assume you're buying a two-seater.

Visibility

The front and rear roof pillars are thin, making the TT an impressively easy sport coupe to see out of.

Quality

The TT feels worth every penny of its price. The cabin's design is not only pleasing to the eye, but the switchgear and contact surfaces are noticeably high in quality. You'll want to spend time in this cabin.

Utility

You really can't expect too much in the way of practicality when it comes to cars in this class. And so it is with the TT.

Small-item storage

Interior cabin stowage is sparse, limited to modest-size door pockets, a small covered bin and armrest space shared with a cupholder. Another cupholder is under the armrest.

Cargo space

Trunk space is adequate with 12 cubic feet of capacity (the TT convertible has 7.5 cubic feet). If you fold the coupe's tiny rear seats flat, you can fit two golf bags.

Technology

The virtual gauge cluster not only displays the speed and other vitals, but it also handles audio, navigation and secondary system controls. You control the majority of functions with the MMI knob mounted on the center console, right where your hand normally rests.

    Audi TT vs. the competition

    Audi TT vs. Audi TTS

    Sharing the look and feel of the TT, the TTS ups the power from 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque to 288 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque. The TTS comes with a faux suede interior as well as a dynamic suspension system for more flexibility over the road. Unlike the TT, the TTS is available only as a coupe.

    Compare Audi TT & Audi TTS features

    Audi TT vs. Audi R8

    While these two look similar, they're mechanically very far apart. The R8 is a mid-engine supercar, while the TT is a compact front-engine sport coupe. Aside from engine location what's the difference? First off, power. The R8 comes with a heart-stopping V10 engine that produces 532 hp, which is a far cry from the TT's 228 hp.

    Compare Audi TT & Audi R8 features

    Audi TT vs. BMW Z4

    The TT Coupe offers the benefit of small rear seats, and the TT Roadster fares well against the Z4. It's priced lower and comes with all-wheel drive. Thanks to its bigger engine, the Z4 is faster, but you'll pay for it. It's also only available as a convertible, making a TT Coupe with its standard all-wheel drive appealing to those living in colder climates.

    Should I lease or buy a 2019 Audi TT Convertible?

    Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
