Which TTS does Edmunds recommend?
Like the other vehicles in the TT range, the 2018 Audi TTS is sold in a single trim level with a ton of standard features. It's worth springing for the Technology package since it's not too pricey and adds a high-end Bang & Olufsen sound system and a navigation system with seriously attractive graphics. The S Sport Seat pack is another reasonable upgrade if you prefer full leather seating over the simulated-suede seat inserts.
Edmunds' Expert Review
If the standard TT is any indication, the TTS will feature an excellent quick-shifting gearbox and an all-wheel-drive system that will keep it glued to the ground. According to Audi, the estimated zero-to-60-mph time is 4.6 seconds, which is about a second quicker than the TT.
The standard seats have firm, comfortable cushions, adjustable lumbar and plenty of lateral support. In its Comfort setting, the suspension is compliant enough to smooth over smaller road imperfections. Combine these qualities with the quiet cabin and you've got a coupe suitable for long trips.
The TTS' low-slung nature will make it difficult for some to gracefully enter and exit, but it feels roomy inside even for taller passengers. The thin roof pillars make it exceptionally easy to see out of. Don't think you're buying a true four-seater; the backseats are basically useless.
Standard trunk space measures 12 cubic feet. Fold the rear seats and the cargo area will swallow two golf bags. Interior stowage is sparse, limited to modest door pockets, a small covered bin and armrest space shared with a flip-down second cupholder.
Most Audis use a central display screen, but the TTS' infotainment display is entirely contained within the digital instrument panel (Audi's Virtual Cockpit). Drivers can navigate its menus using buttons on the steering wheel or the controller just aft of the shifter.
