Easily the most stylish sport coupe in its segment, the second-generation TT is a more aggressive, muscular car than its predecessor. Competitors such as the BMW Z4, Mercedes-Benz SLK, and Nissan 350Z offer more performance, but the only the TT inspires slavish imitation. To its credit, the new TT handles more crisply than before, but the suspension tuning may be too stiff for some style-conscious customers. Audi equips the TT with a choice of a 2.0L turbo or a 3.2L V-6. The V-6 can be mated to a 6-speed S tronic automatic gearbox or a 6-speed manual driving all four wheels. The FWD 2.0L gets the S tronic transmission only. Audi claims 0-60 MPH in 5.3 seconds (S tronic) or 5.5 seconds (6-speed manual) for the V-6. The 2.0L is slightly slower to 60 MPH (6.1 seconds). A comprehensive option list includes nine different alloy wheels designs (17 to 19-inches), special leather interior trim, S line sports package, DVD navigation, and Bose audio system.

What Changed:

The second generation TT features all-new styling and larger proportions. The TT is 2 inches wider in track and wheelbase, and almost 5 inches longer in overall length. Front-wheel-drive entry-level TT models are powered by a 200hp 2.0L turbocharged four cylinder. Uplevel models feature all-wheel-drive and a 3.2L V6 engine.
