2016 Audi TT MODEL OVERVIEW

New for 2016

The redesigned 2016 Audi TT is all-new and is underpinned by the Volkswagen Group's MQB scalable platform, allowing it to lose around 100 pounds and be 25 percent stiffer than the model it replaces. Exterior styling is evolutionary but it remains recognizable as TT while the interior gains new features such as the virtual cockpit featuring a 12.3-inch TFT display with 3D graphics for the navigation, instrument cluster, and the latest iteration of Audi's MMI infotainment system.

Vehicle Summary

The 2016 Audi TT is a small all-wheel-drive sports car available as a coupe configured with a 2+2 seating arrangement or a two-seat convertible.

Overview

A turbocharged 2.0-liter I-4 is the only engine available and is rated at 220 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque in the base model and 292 hp and 280 lb-ft in the TTS. Both the TT and TTS will come exclusively with a six-speed twin-clutch automatic transmission. The all-wheel drive system in all TT models is able to move 100 percent of torque to the front or rear wheels as determined by a microcomputer. Fuel economy in the TT is class competitive at 23/30 mpg city/highway for the TT coupe and convertible, and 23/27 mpg for the TTS coupe.

One of the most significant improvements made to the 2016 TT is the addition of Audi's virtual cockpit, which utilizes a 12.3-inch TFT screen to display navigation maps and instruments. Three different modes are available, one that emphasizes the navigation map, one that squeezes the map and enlarges the instruments and a Sport-oriented layout with a large central analog tachometer and central speedometer. The downside to the virtual cockpit, however, is that passengers aren't able to see or make inputs on the infotainment system.

Fit and finish is typical Audi, featuring high-quality materials and a clean, elegant look that's simple and tasteful. While there are rear seats in the TT coupe, they're best suited for bags because there isn't much space there for a child let alone an adult. In the TT coupe, there's a 10.8-cubic foot cargo area that's expandable to 25.1 cubic feet with the split-folding rear seats down, making it surprisingly practical.

Safety

Standard safety features on the 2016 TTS include dual-front, front-side, and side curtain airbags. Blind spot warning is available as part of the technology package.

Trims, Packages, and What's Standard

The base TT comes generously equipped with automatic full LED headlights, LED taillights, automatic climate control, leather/Alcantara upholstery, heated front sport seats, 50/50 split-folding rear seatbacks, Audi's MMI infotainment system with handwriting recognition technology, the slick virtual cockpit, Bluetooth connectivity, keyless entry and start, rear parking sensors, and Audi Drive Select. Navigation, a rearview camera, blind spot warning, and heated power-folding side mirrors are available as part of the Technology package. Nappa leather upholstery is available as part of the Audi Design Selection package or the S Sport Seat package. A Bang & Olufsen audio system and 19-inch alloy wheels wrapped in summer performance tires are available as standalone options.

What We Think

The 2016 TT is a big step up over the previous generation model, offering excellent performance, a well-balanced ride and handling, cutting edge technology, a well-built interior, and surprising practicality in the case of the coupe. In a First Drive, we said that the car's more powerful engine and six-speed twin-clutch gearbox made it more willing to accelerate thanks to abundant torque and quick shifts. While its more at home on winding mountain roads than on a track, the TT, especially the TTS, is well balanced, with minimal body roll and a ride that's firm but not overly so thanks to the available magnetic ride shocks. However, the TT's steering remains a weak point because it's too light and doesn't have much road feel; additionally, when it's in Dynamic mode, it becomes way too firm.

You'll Like:

  • Slick virtual cockpit
  • Roomy cargo area in the coupe
  • Excellent performance and handling

You Won't Like:

  • Rear seats in the coupe are best seen as a place to stow bags
  • Steering feel has little in term of feel in all but Dynamic mode where it's too firm
