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.
Audi offers two high-performance versions of the TT: the TTS and TT RS. The TT RS is covered in a separate report in the Cars.com Research section.

There are no significant changes for 2012.
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:

- 18-inch wheels; 19-inch wheels available
- LED daytime running lights

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:
