What Is the 2017 Audi TT?

The 2017 Audi TT is a four-seat coupe or two-seat, soft-top roadster that offers more versatility than its compact size might suggest. The TT is available in one trim level, 2.0T, but also comes in a more powerful version called the TTS, covered separately. All-wheel drive is standard on either body style.

What's New on the 2017 Audi TT?

Fully redesigned for 2016, the Audi TT now comes standard for 2017 with a backup camera and auto-dimming, power-folding side mirrors.

How Does the 2017 Audi TT Compare to Other Coupes?

The 2017 Audi TT carries a price of about $44,000 MSRP for the base level. Shoppers interested in the roadster might also look at the BMW Z4 or the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class, and those interested in the coupe also have the options of the BMW 2 Series, the Lexus RC 350 or the Audi A5. All five options have similar prices to the TT.

What Features in the 2017 Audi TT Are Most Important?

The TT is powered by a 220-horsepower, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine exclusively with a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Significant standard features include standard all-wheel drive, 18-inch alloy wheels, full LED headlights, dual tailpipes, configurable driving modes, full-LCD instrument panel, leather and Alcantara simulated-suede seats and Bluetooth streaming audio. As required of every new 2017 car, the TT has front airbags, antilock brakes and an electronic stability system.

Significant available features include a Bang & Olufsen premium stereo, in-car 4G LTE Wi-Fi hot spot (subscription required), a navigation system and a blind spot warning system.

Should I Buy the 2017 Audi TT?

The 2017 Audi TT handles well and comes with a lot of standard features you might have to pay extra for on other vehicles. There's a surprising amount of room in the cabin, despite the small backseat, and the interior materials provide additional comfort. The TT has a good amount of trunk space for a coupe, but luggage space in the convertible is limited. The Audi TT doesn't offer a manual transmission and the drivetrain lags in normal driving modes.

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.
