Exterior and Performance

This is the area of focus for the 2018 Audi TT, and its performance is nothing short of spectacular. There are three options to choose from, ranging from casual fun to adrenaline-fuelled track star. The base model is equipped with a fairly respectable 2.0-liter turbo with 220 horsepower, which gives the light roadster plenty of speed. The TTS model uses the same engine, but with a more aggressive tune that brings the power up to 292 horsepower. The top choice, which is new this year, is the TT RS, which is armed with a five-cylinder turbo engine that tops out at a massive 400 horsepower. Helping you control all of this power is a six-speed automatic transmission, a Haldex all-wheel drive system, and an Audi Drive Select switch that lets you tune the performance up and down depending on your needs. In all configurations, the car is nimble and agile, easily navigating hairpin switchbacks or weaving between lanes, but the TTS and RS models also add dynamic magnetic suspension that further adds to the car’s agility and reduces body roll. In short, the 2018 TT is fun and exciting in any configuration.

Interior and Technology

Audi simply does not make cars without comfortable and luxurious interiors, so even a relatively simple roadster like the TT gets the full luxury treatment. The leather seats have full powered articulation and come standard with heating, while soft plastics and brushed aluminium compose the car’s other interior surfaces. Even here, the designers have been careful to sprinkle in subtle references to the car’s sporty nature with accents designed to imitate racing car and airplane cockpits. The seats give both the driver and the passenger plenty of space to stretch out, and a rather large trunk provides ample space to bring some bags along on your road trip.

The innovative technology on the 2018 Audi TT does not just live under the hood. Its infotainment system is a radical departure from the traditional designs and is centered on the driver. Instead of a conventional touchscreen, the TT uses a virtual cockpit design that projects the instrument cluster, along with infotainment information, on a large display behind the steering wheel, which also houses the controls. This makes it very easy to control your smartphone apps or the premium Bang and Olufsen audio without taking your eyes off the road.

Safety

The Audi TT is quick and nimble, which is its number one safety feature, but it also comes with a number of technological aids to help drivers avoid accidents. A rearview camera is standard on all models, while blind spot monitors and lane keep assistance are among the optional features. The current model of the TT has not yet been crash tested by either of the two major agencies, but the recent improvements in its body rigidity and a lower center of mass, together with a large complement of airbags, are designed to protect the occupants in case of any kind of collision.
