2008 Audi TT Review

An affordable option over other Audi models, although it sacrifices luxury and high performance.

Reviewed by Automotive on

Overview

The 2008 Audi TT comes as a coupe or convertible. It serves as a very affordable model for people on a low budget who still want a fun, sporty, and luxurious car.

The Range

Body Styles: two-door convertible, two door coupe hatchback
Engines: 2.0-liter four-cylinder, 3.2-liter V-6
Transmissions: six-speed automatic, six-speed manual
Models: Audi TT Coupe Hatchback 2.0, Audi TT Roadster 2.0, Audi TT Roadster 3.2

What's New

The 2008 Audi TT gets fully redesigned from previous models. A completely new style brings the TT up to date, while the four-cylinder engine keeps fuel usage to a minimum. The 2008 model measures both wider and longer than previous models, so it balances and handles better. To compensate for the bigger body style of the 2008 model, aluminum gets used extensively to control the overall weight. As a result this model actually weighs less than previous generation Audi TTs.

Exterior

The rear spoiler on the coupe helps improve road grip at highway speeds and the performance tires improve this effect. The variable intermittent windshield wipers sense rain to help the driver keep the road visible. The rear defogger helps the driver with visibility behind the vehicle in times of snow, ice, or fog. The 17-inch alloy wheels are smaller than some other more expensive Audi models and the usual spare tire does not come in the package. The cargo tie-downs help the owner pack and move supplies or luggage whenever necessary.

With many of the same features as the coupe hatchback, the convertible adds the extra feature of a power convertible roof. Unlike some of the more advanced luxury models Audi has to offer, the TT’s power sunroof cannot be controlled remotely.

Interior

While most Audi vehicles have eight-way or 10-way adjustable seats, this feature remains unavailable for the TT. The seats still get height adjustment for the driver’s and front-passenger’s comfort and convenience. Although the power sunroof does not offer remote control, the power door locks and power windows do. The mirrors keep power and heating. The TT has one 12-volt power outlet that can be used to power standard 12-volt electronic devices. The tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel ensures the driver can get a good grip maintain control. The electric speed-proportional power steering makes handing and turning easier at both low and high speeds.

Performance & Handling

The two-liter, four-cylinder models deliver 200 horsepower, while the 3.2-liter, V-6 engines offer an additional 50 horsepower. With a much smaller engine than some Audi models, both the two-liter and 3.2-liter 2008 TTs perform better than older TTs. The TT still uses the all-wheel-drive system to improve traction, handling, and control at all speeds. Although the two-liter coupe and convertible only have the option of an automatic transmission, they come with paddle-shift capability. Experienced Audi drivers claim that the steering feels precise and that the 3.2-liter model is the better choice because it has better handling and control on wet roads. The two-liter models still feel nimble and handle corners well because the small engine puts less weight on the front wheels.

Safety

The two-door coupe and the two-door convertible styles both have all the same safety features installed. Safety features include four-wheel anti-lock brakes modified with a brake drying system, ventilated disc brakes, passenger airbag system equipped with occupant-sensing activation and deactivation, front head and side airbags, stability control, and traction control.

EPA Fuel Economy

Audi TT Coupe: 23/31 mpg city/highway
Audi TT Roadster 2.0: 22/29 mpg city/highway
Audi TT Roadster 3.2: 17/24 mpg city/highway
