2021 Audi TTS Review

  • Impeccable cabin design bolstered by impressive level of tech
  • The turbocharged four-cylinder has plenty of power
  • Precise handling
  • Standard all-wheel drive
  • Not many easily accessible storage places for small items
  • Limited cargo space
  • Rear seats are better for carrying your bags than people
  • More interior leather surfaces, including Nappa leather seats
  • Navigation and premium Bang & Olufsen stereo are now standard
  • 20-inch wheels with summer performance tires are now standard
  • Part of the third Audi TT generation introduced for 2016

The 2021 Audi TTS sits in the sweet spot of the TT lineup. Its ideal driver is one who is looking for a more powerful TT but doesn't have the deeper pockets for the top-shelf TT RS model. The Audi TTS packs a 288-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine and offers quick acceleration, nimble handling, standard all-wheel-drive and a crisp-shifting seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

The current TTS debuted in 2016 as part of the third-generation TT lineup. TTs are known for being high on style, luxury and technology, and this TTS is no exception. It has a sleek-looking exterior and an interior fitted with high-quality materials and a driver-focused layout. We're fond of the TTS, but it'll also be worth your time to check out a few rivals such as the BMW 2 Series (in its six-cylinder M240i guise), Porsche 718 Cayman and Toyota GR Supra.

Which TTS does Edmunds recommend?

The 2021 TTS Coupe only comes in a single well-equipped trim. Your choices largely come down to what cosmetic trappings you prefer, from colored stitching on the seats to carbon-fiber interior trim, alternate wheels and more.

Audi TTS vs. the competition

Audi TTS vs. Lexus RC 350

The Lexus RC 350 focuses more on the luxury side of things than the TTS. It has a smooth V6 engine and a relaxed demeanor on the highway. It also costs less than the TTS. But we're not fans of the RC's infotainment interface, which is not as intuitive to use as it should be. You get standard all-wheel drive with the TTS too.

Audi TTS vs. Porsche 718 Cayman

A base Porsche 718 Cayman starts about the same as a TTS, but options can quickly send the price skyward. That said, the 718 Cayman is one of the best-driving cars around. Its steering gives you a great sense of the road, and its handling, thanks to its mid-engine layout, is balanced and playful. You can even get a manual transmission, which is something Audi no longer offers for the TTS.

Audi TTS vs. BMW 2 Series

The BMW 2 Series, especially in its M240i trim, offers a fantastic blend of performance, comfort and refinement. It is priced less than the TTS and offers more power and a bigger back seat. Though the 2 Series is a handsome coupe, it isn't as stylish as the TTS and may not get the same level of attention. And all-wheel drive is optional for the 2 Series.

Should I lease or buy a 2021 Audi TTS?

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.
