2021 Audi TT RS review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2021 Audi TT?

The Audi TT comes as a four-seat coupe or two-seat roadster. Both have a standard turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 228 horsepower. This engine pairs with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, and all-wheel drive is standard. The more powerful TTS coupe is powered by a 288-hp, turbo four-cylinder.  

At the top of the range is the TT RS coupe, which is powered by a turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine that makes 394 hp. Rivals to this Audi performance trio include the Mercedes-Benz SLC-Class, BMW 2 Series and Lexus RC.

What’s New on the 2021 Audi TT?

New standard features include sport seats finished in Nappa leather upholstery, additional leather interior accents, navigation, blind spot warning and a Bang & Olufsen stereo. The TT roadster also gains a standard neck-level heating system.

What Features in the 2021 Audi TT Are Most Important?

Standard features include:

  • Digital instrument cluster with 12.3-inch screen
  • Flat-bottomed steering wheel with shift paddles
  • Heated front seats
  • Wireless device charging
  • Front and rear parking sensors

Should I Buy the 2021 Audi TT?

As sports cars go, the Audi TT is practical so long as you accept its limitations. The coupe’s rear seat is barely usable, while the roadster’s tiny trunk forces you to pack light for weekend getaways. The range-topping TT RS is a riot to drive, but it’s very pricey and will mostly appeal to diehard Audi fans.

An impractical toy

I acquired a 2021 TTRS in August, trading in a 2022 Audi TTS on this beast. If your looking for a practical car, look elsewhere. The ride is rough, not much room inside. This vehicle is a toy. A fast one at that. Especially with an ECU tune. Holy Toledo! And that 5 cycling engine. My wife’s Mercedes has a lot more tech features, has room. A great traveling car. But it’s not a TTRS.


Fastest car I’ve owned so far.

I love the car but it say two setter not a four setter. There is no way anyone e can set in back unless it’s two small car sets.
