2019 Audi TT Roadster

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: The 2019 Audi TT has revised front and rear styling. The base TT engine gains eight horsepower for a total of 228. Both base TT and TTS swap their 6-speed automated-manual transmission for a 7-speed automated manual. 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 parking sensors. An optional Technology package adds features such as a navigation system, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto interface, and blind-spot monitor. The Audi TT coupe and roadster are powered by a 228-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. The high-performance TT RS is the most powerful of the TT series with a 394-horsepower turbocharged 2.5-liter 5-cylinder engine. All models use a 7-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 base models aren’t quite as quick or agile as a Porsche Cayman or Boxster, they offer true sports-car satisfaction for significantly less money than those rivals.
