The current generation of the TT has been around for a while, but it remains eye-catching and fun to drive. What it isn’t is a thrill machine for two.
It’s available as either a coupe or a convertible and comes with a 228-hp turbocharged four-cylinder engine; the TTS offers a 288-hp version of this engine with significantly more grunt.
All-wheel drive is standard equipment, as is a dual-clutch automatic transmission but, unfortunately Audi TT
The base TT receives a new 18-inch wheel design, but it and the Audi TTS are otherwise unchanged.
Now that the more powerful Audi TT RS is gone, we’d probably spend the extra cash for the TTS and its upgraded engine.
But the Audi TTS comes only in the coupe bodystyle, so if you want the wind in your hair then the convertible—a.k.a Roadster—is for you.
A turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine lives under the hood of the audi TT, and it generates 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque.
The audi TTS gets a beefed-up version of this engine that's tuned to deliver 288 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque.
Both cars use a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with Quattro all-wheel drive. Whether you choose the Audi TT or the TTS, you'll enjoy responsive handling.
The Audi TTS is reasonably quick capable of the 60-mph dash in the low four-second range, but that still trails everything from Toyota Supras to Corvette Stingrays to Porsche 718 Caymans.
The EPA has not yet rated the 2023 TT. Last year, both body styles of the Audi TT achieved fuel economy of 23/30 mpg city/highway.
That makes the audi TT a more fuel-efficient choice than rival sports cars such as the Porsche 718 Cayman (21/27 mpg).
Both the audi TT and TTS provide cabins that are temples of chic minimalism. The design is graceful and contemporary, and premium materials are used throughout.
Technically, this coupe model seats four, but the cramped rear seat is best left for luggage and grocery bags. There's also a dearth of storage nooks within the cabin.Audi TT
