2013 Audi TTS review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview

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.

(Skip to details on the: TTS)

New for 2013A newly available S line Competition Package includes unique 19-inch matte-black wheels with performance tires, black exhaust tips, a front splitter, rear diffuser and a rear spoiler. The cabin gains S line cues.
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

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 and 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 suede seat upholstery
  • Available heated front seats
  • Available Bose stereo
  • Available LED lighting
  • Available navigation system
  • Available iPod connectivity

Under the Hood
The TT is powered by a 211-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that makes 258 pounds-feet of torque. It’s mated to a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Mechanical features include:

  • Engine uses premium gas
  • All-wheel drive

Safety
Safety features include:

  • Antilock brakes
  • Side-impact airbags for the front seats
  • Front knee airbags
  • Electronic stability system

TTS

The TTS is a high-output version of the TT. Available in roadster and coupe versions, both with all-wheel drive, the TTS is powered by a 265-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 258 pounds-feet of torque. The only transmission offered is a six-speed dual-clutch automatic. The TTS features bi-xenon high-intensity-discharge headlamps with LED daytime running lights. There’s also a larger lower air intake up front, lower rocker panels on the sides, a rear diffuser and quad exhaust pipes out back. For 2013, a two-tone leather interior is available. Back to top

Awesome car

This was my first German car, and this car has been great in so many ways. The performance and handling is precise, tons or trunk room for groceries or even cramming a mountain bike, AWD for snowy ski trips, good gas mileage, and it's been super reliable mechanically.

2012 Audi TTS the Ultimate Winter Sports Car

I'm one of a few enthusiasts that doesn't see the point in locking up your pony all winter long. My TTS is loaded with all options including Nav and Premium Bose Sound. Firstly let's look at the "practical" things about the TTS. "practical" a word seldom synonomous with a " sports car " I'd like to point out that I previously owned a Porsche Boxster S. The Boxster was great top down fun Spring, Summer and Fall. Useless in the winter even with snow tires, hard top et all. Service was brutal. The Audi however is a far more refined daily driver. In the 4th largest city in North America with some of the worst traffic and weather. The 6 speed dual clutch automatic TTS is a dream. Paddle shift at your leisure . Gas mileage is outstanding in a car that does 0-60 in 5.0 seconds. Trunk space is pretty astonishing for a sports car, especially with the back seats down. Superb power, excellent handling, excellent interior fit and finsh. Love driving to work every day. Nav has included traffic ( a God send ) Remove the 19" summer wheel set and slap on 4 high quality Michelin snows with 18" rims and she'll cut through anything. Toronto had it's worst ice storm in memory in Dec. of 2013. The TTS confidently manuvered over sheer ice roads with very little loss of traction. My son's goalie equipment fits easily in the back, stick and all. Did I say the gas milage was superb? Love my TTS. Spring and Summer review to follow ... If you want a sports machine for the land of ice and snow. The TTS is one sweet ride.
