Audi TT – A Design Icon
Audi TT is unrivaled in its visual impact. Although it was launched in 1998, but it still manages to look fresh and unique after all these years. The TT is made on the same chassis as the Audi A3 and VW Golf and it gives you lots of choices of petrol and diesel engines. It comes in front or four-wheel drive. Top of the range 335bhp TT RS models are very powerful and all TT’s handle beautifully. The 2.0 TDI diesel versions give 53.3mpg. The second generation Audi TT was unveiled in 2008, but it manages to stand out from the crowd due to its clean and crisp lines. Base models come with 17-inch alloy wheels while the interior is part leather all over the range. The final finish is exquisite as expected from Audi.
Audi TT is offered in three engines, base models get a 1.8-litre turbo petrol and the 2.0 TFSI is the next engine in the range. Both of these engines have enough punch and give 39mpg. If you fancy a diesel you can opt for a 168bhp 2.0-litre TDI, which gives 53.3mpg. The S tronic automatic gearbox is also a good option as it is one of the best automatics ob the market in this class. Petrol’s are available in either front wheel or four wheel drive while the diesel comes equipped with Audi’s famous Quattro four-wheel-drive system. The interior is very practical and the TT coupe is spacious enough for the front seat occupants. The back seats are very tight even for small children.
The boot space is 290litres which can increase to 700litres once the rear seats are folded. TT is an expensive car to buy but it does hold on to its value very well. Even after three years the Coupe keeps 60 per cent of its value. If you drive a company car, you should opt for 2.0litre TDI diesel engine mated with S tronic double clutch gearbox. It returns 51.4mpg and goes from 0-60mph in just 7.5seconds. However, this means that the TT range covers both performance and price. If you are a keen drive you will naturally go for the coupe and if you like to drive calmly the roadster is your best option. TT does seem pricey in comparison to Volkswagen Scirocco as the later is based on TT. In TT, Audi has managed to design a stylish car inside and outside, is economical and drives well.
