2009 Audi TTS 2.0T quattro 2dr Hatchback AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)


What a great vehicle. Replaced a Lotus Exige which I mistakenly thought I could manage as a daily driver. The Exige is brilliant but was simply a car to be endured to be enjoyed. What the TTS loses to outright track performance from the Lotus it more than makes up with overall reliability, fit & finish, & comfort. I've had an R32 which the Audi is essentially a sexier, more powerful & luxurious, version. Some alternatives are faster, sharper, cheaper, etc. But, the Audi TTS is a brilliant fast, four-season sports car that can coddle you in luxury, large cargo area, and is a modern classic. Price & Performance alternatives: BMW 135, 370Z. STI/Evo are decent near-luxury considerations

Best Features

DSG is impressive; Very rapid shifts. Daytime LED strips are striking. It actually looks cool to have your DRL's on. Pop up spoiler is a nice touch. Highly modifiable and rock-solid engine. Flat bottom steering wheel adds to Audi's gorgeous interiors.

Worst Features

Performance-wise, the steering is arcade-like. Bad. Since this engine comes with a large turbo attached to the 2.0 4 cyl, there is a distinct turbo lag from a stop. It has launch control which is great if you choose to launch from a stop; which you certainly will not be doing at every intersection
