Audi's TT sports car has aged surprisingly well since its 2000-model-year U.S. debut; it's still a head-turning design despite the influx of other, outlandishly styled models. The TT coupe uses Audi's Aluminum Space Frame technology and is powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder engine or a V-6. The TT comes in 2.0T, 3.2 and TTS trim levels. The TT competes with the BMW Z4 and Nissan 350Z. A high-performance TTS version is also available.

New for 2009
The TT's 2.0T versions can now be had with Quattro all-wheel drive, and some former options are now standard.
The 2009 TT sports Audi's trapezoidal grille, which splits the front bumper. The slit-like headlights and lower grille styling lend the TT a sinister appearance. The TT's body is 69 percent aluminum and 31 percent steel, with the steel pieces located at the back of the car for optimal weight distribution. The TT is 164.5 inches long, 72.5 inches wide and 53.5 inches tall. Alongside coupe versions of its competitors, the TT is the widest and tallest. In terms of length, the TT falls between the Z4 (161.1 inches) and 350Z (169.8 inches).
- Power-retractable rear spoiler deploys at 75 mph
- Wheels available in 17-, 18- and 19-inch sizes
The TT coupe has front bucket seats and a small rear seat. The large rear hatch opens to a 13.1-cubic-foot cargo space that grows to 24.7 cubic feet when the rear seats are lowered. Audi says the TT coupe can carry two golf bags. The TT roadster is a two-seater.
Drivers face two large, round gauges behind a flat-bottom, multifunction steering wheel. There are metal pedals, and the interior vents are trimmed in aluminum.
- Automatic climate control standard
- CD stereo with auxiliary audio input standard
- New leather interior colors available (roadster)
- Navigation system available in Prestige Package
- Manual top standard on 2.0T roadster; power top optional
Under the Hood
The TT's turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine makes 200 horsepower and 207 pounds-feet of torque. An available 3.2-liter V-6 generates 250 hp and 236 pounds-feet of torque. A six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission is standard on base coupes and roadsters. The 3.2 is the sportier of the two models and as such comes with a sporty six-speed manual standard, with a six-speed dual-clutch automatic as an option. Both the coupe and roadster are available with either engine.
- 3.2 versions only available with Quattro all-wheel drive; 2.0T can have front- or all-wheel drive
- 0-60 mph times range from 5.7-6.4 seconds, depending on trim
- Standard hill-hold assist
