The distinctively styled Audi TT sports car is available in coupe or roadster form. It's powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder engine, and all models have all-wheel drive. Competitors include the BMW Z4 and Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class.

New for 2012
There are no significant changes for 2012.

Exterior
The TT has a taut, muscular appearance that helps distinguish it on the road. It's immediately recognizable as an Audi thanks to the large trapezoidal grille that dominates the car's front end. The coupe's roofline tapers gracefully to its tail. Exterior features include:

  • Aluminum-intensive construction
  • 18-inch wheels; 19-inch wheels available
  • LED daytime running lights
  • Retractable spoiler
  • Heated side mirrors
  • Available S line styling cues

Interior
The TT coupe has front bucket seats and a small rear seat. The large rear hatch opens to a cargo space that Audi says can carry two golf bags. The TT roadster is a two-seater. The driver faces two large, round gauges behind a flat-bottom, multifunction steering wheel. The air vents on the dashboard are round, too, and trimmed with aluminum. Interior features include:

  • CD stereo with MP3 jack and satellite radio; six-CD changer available
  • Automatic air conditioning
  • Cruise control
  • Brushed aluminum trim
  • Leather/Alcantara simulated su...

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
