2017 Audi TT

Pros: Invigorating performance and all-wheel-drive handling; good fuel economy for a high-end sporty car; impressive cabin design and assembly quality

Cons: Traditional manual transmission is unavailable; no rear seat in convertible and cramped rear seat in coupe; limited cargo room; stiff ride

CG Says: After its redesign last year, the 2017 Audi TT gains standard rearview camera and automatic-dimming/power-folding side mirrors. TT comes as a 2+2 hatchback coupe or a 2-seat convertible. The stylish interior is highlighted by a “virtual cockpit” gauge cluster; it packs speedometer, tachometer, infotainment, navigation, vital stats, etc. into one 12.3-inch configurable screen. Standard features include heated mirrors, an adaptive rear spoiler, keyless entry and ignition, and rear-parking sensors. An optional Technology package adds features such as a navigation system, Apple CarPlay interface, blind-spot monitor, rearview camera, and front parking sensors. The Audi TT coupe and roadster are powered by a 220-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder; the higher-performance TTS model comes only as a coupe and boasts 292 hp from its turbo 2.0 four. All TTs use a 6-speed automated manual transmission; a traditional manual is not offered. The Audi TT continues to offer one-of-a-kind looks while upping the level of technology and refinement. Though it isn’t quite as quick or agile as a Porsche Cayman or Boxster, it offers true sports-car satisfaction for significantly less money than those rivals.
