The Audi TT is a compact coupe initially launched in 1998 and gets the name from the legendary racing tradition of Isle of Man TT (Tourist Trophy). The vehicle amassed popularity due to its sporty curves, enticing design, and smaller dimensions. It has carved a niche position for itself in the market. The exterior looks compact and sleek, while the interior is built well with all the necessary features.

Overall Rating


The 2020 TT Coupe brings a few changes which range from cosmetic decorations to essential in-car equipment. In the segment that it falls, it aims at providing a sporty experience at a rather affordable price. The 2020 Audi TT ranks an admirable 6th in its class and is rivaled by the Lexus RC 300 Coupe, Mercedes-Benz C 300 Coupe, and BMW 430i Coupe. Can it weave the same magic on the buyers as its predecessor? Let’s find out.

2020 Audi TT Features

8.2/10

Audi offers the 2020 TT Coupe in a single trim, priced at $45,500. The car comes powered with a turbocharged 2L inline-4 engine mated to an S-Tronic 7-speed automatic transmission and is available with only an all-wheel-drive option. With 2020 MY, the car comes with much-needed features like an engine immobilizer, an anti-theft alarm system, and a motion sensor. Apart from that, the car comes with a pragmatic set of practical features like keyless entry and ignition, leather and faux suede upholstery, heated front seats, and a digital instrument panel. These features justify its cost and make it one of the preferred compact coupes in the range. Additionally, if you want to equip your coupe with a better set of features there are four packages to choose from namely the S Line Competition Package, S Sport Seat Package, Technology Package, and 19” inch Wheel Package.

Which Trim should you buy?

You don’t get much choice here as it is available in only one trim level and 4 additional packages. Alongside buying the car, we recommend you to fit in the Technology and S-line Competition Package. As compared to the rivals, the 2020 Audi TT Coupe provides several standard features at a relatively lower price. 

2020 Audi TT Engine and Performance

The 2020 Audi TT comes equipped with a 2L turbo inline-4 engine mated with a 7-speed S-Tronic automatic transmission. Power is sent to all four wheels with the Quattro system. The engine generates 228 hp of power and 258 lb-ft of torque. The admirable power and torque help it reach 0-60 mph in 5.6 seconds and covers a quarter-mile run within 14.1 seconds

The engine offers a pleasant experience when it comes to manners. It's smooth and the speed builds up in no time. Despite being lower in terms of power output, the performance delivered is impressive. The Quattro AWD system works well and offers impressive driving dynamics. You take the coupe on snow, sand, terrains, and jittery surfaces.

The Audi sits in between the C 300 and RC 300 when it comes to price. The Audi’s engine puts out the lowest power, but the comparatively higher torque helps it with faster 0-60 timings and ¼ timings. In terms of performance, the C 300 Coupe has an edge with balanced power and torque numbers of 255hp and 273lb.-ft. Surprisingly, the Lexus that comes equipped with a Naturally Aspirated V6 and produces the highest power, is the slowest of the lot taking 6.4 seconds to the 60mph mark, 0.2 seconds slower than the BMW 4-Series 430i.

How well does the 2020 Audi TT Coupe handle?

When it comes to handling, the 2020 Audi TT is as good as it looks. The steering feels light and smooth, and the lower curb weight means responsive steering and well-balanced driving. The Quattro AWD drivetrain makes it easier for the driver to drive on bad road conditions, snow, sand, and jittery surfaces. 

The lighter body and lower center of gravity result in minimal body roll while taking sharp turns and it treads confidently in curves. But, the suspension is on the firmer side, as a result, the car shakes significantly on bad roads. The vibrations are even more noticeable if you’re seated at the back. To sum up, in short, the 2020 TT offers good handling, but Audi has to work on comfort. While the base trim has ample power to satisfy daily needs, the higher-placed TTS and TT RS models are quick-firing and exhilarating. 

2020 Audi TT Braking Performance

Audi has fitted the 2020 TT with disc brakes on all the wheels. The front comes fitted with 12.3” ventilated disc brakes, while 11.8” solid disc brakes come fitted at the rear. The discs are further appointed with ABS, EBD, Brake Assist, and Hill Hold Control. The brakes feel responsive and it is long-lasting. Slam down the brakes and the 2020 Audi TT comes to stop from 60 mph within 103 feet.

The Audi TT offers the best braking potential. There are a couple of reasons behind the shortest distance of braking. First, the lowest curb weight, and secondly, the responsive brakes. Mercedes C 300 comes to a stop from 60-0MPH in 124 feet; this is due to the fact it is heavy and comes equipped with the smallest brake rotors in the lot. The BMW 430i has similarly sized rotors as the Mercedes-Benz that measure 13 and 11.8-inch at the front and rear. However, its performance statistics are not known, but the coupe manages to come to a halt from the 70 MPH mark at 162 ft. 

2020 Audi TT Fuel Economy

The Audi TT is considerably faster when compared to its rivals. What impresses us more is the vehicle does offer a good mileage too. The engine manages to return 23,31 and 26 MPG in the city, highways, and combined driving cycles respectively. The car is built with a small 14.5-gallon fuel tank but the commendable fuel economy figures push its driving range to well over 333.5 and 449.5 miles in the city and highway respectively.

Despite churning out good performance figures, the 2020 Audi TT manages to offer the best mileage figures. Lexus comes equipped with a larger V6 engine and that means the fuel economy will be poor. Answering the need for an adequate fuel range, Lexus RC 300 coupe comes equipped with a large 17.4-gallon tank. Mercedes-Benz offers a slightly lower fuel economy than the Audi of 25 MPG but the large fuel tank pushes its driving range to well over 500 miles on the highway. The BMW 4-Series Coupe also manages a higher range than most of its competitors. 

2020 Audi TT Interior

8.6/10

The 2020 Audi TT coupe comes fitted with a practical cabin that offers 4-person accommodation. The cabin is composed of good-quality plastics and comes wrapped with soft black cloth. The interior also comes decorated with Aluminum inserts that look great and feel premium when touched. The seats come covered with black Alcantara leather. The front seats offer 8-way power adjustment with 4-way lumbar support. Also, both the front seats have a heating function. The front seats are placed upright and are well padded for comfort. However, the rear seats look bland and lack adequate space. 

The rear space being smaller in space is recommended for kids, pets, and storage. Apart from the above, you get several features like a 3-spoke multifunction sports steering wheel with audio/cruise controls and shift paddles. Other specifications include a tilt and telescopic steering wheel, an electrochromic rearview mirror, and a sun sensor. At the back, the vehicle offers 12 cu.-ft of cargo space. The smaller cargo trunk can only be used to store small luggage, bags, and belongings.

All the coupes offer 4-seating accommodation. Among all, the BMW offers the best passenger space both at the front and back. Additionally, it comes with the biggest cargo capacity of 15.7 cubic feet. On the contrary, the Audi TT feels a bit cramped in the interior but offers a decent cargo space. While the Lexus has ample space up front, it comes at the cost of rear-seat space. The Mercedes-Benz provides the most proportionate cabin but it cuts into the cargo space leaving it with an impractical trunk. 

Standout Interior Features:

  • 8-way power-adjustable front seats w/ 4-way power lumbar adjust
  • Heated front seats
  • Alcantara leather seats
  • 50/50 split rear seats
  • 3-spoke multifunction steering wheel w/ shift paddles
  • Aluminum drift inlays

Other essential features include MMI Touch w/ handwriting recognition, HD Radio, SiriusXM, Bluetooth wireless services- audio streaming and hands-free. Opting for the Tech package gets you Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a built-in navigation system, Audi Connect telematics, remote monitoring and control, MMI Plus system, and a 12-speaker Bang & Olufsen premium audio system

  • 12.3” driver/multimedia display w/ Audi Virtual Cockpit

2020 Audi TT Exterior

The secret behind the high sales of the Audi TT Coupe is the compact and sleek body structure. You can’t help but appreciate how the Germans are at the top of the game when it comes to making bold-looking cars. The front fascia is fitted with Full-LED All-Weather headlights with sharp DRLs. The DRLs being sharper offers a distinct look to the car. Audi’s signature triangular grille with black mesh sits between the LED headlights which gives it a sporty look.

Furthermore, to spice up the overall appeal, you also get an adaptive rear spoiler. The rear comes decorated with LED taillights. Moreover, as standard, you get 18” 5-double-spoke dynamic design alloys, that add to the aesthetic appeal. Essentially, the Audi TT has sported an almost similar design for quite some time with minor tweaks, yet it maintains a contemporary look and stands on par with its competitors. 

The performance that the 2020 Audi TT Coupe manages is made possible by its lightest curb weight of 3,197 lbs and a shorter wheelbase of 98.6 inches. It sits extremely low and has a total clearance from the ground of 4.4 inches.

2020 Audi TT is the smallest coupe among all. It measures at least 17” smaller than the others. This makes it easy to drive and park in tight alleys. RC 300 Coupe is the largest of the lot and the V6 engine under the hood adds to the weight making it the heaviest car in the lot too with a curb weight of a little under 3900 lbs. On the other hand, the Mercedes-Benz C300 Coupe and BMW 430i Coupe have longer wheelbases of 111.8 and 110.6 inches. In terms of design, both the coupes are based on sedans 

Some of the standout exterior features of the 2020 Audi TT Coupe include:

It comes with standard features that include a rearview camera, daytime running lights, and also gets the Audi Side Assist.

2020 Audi TT Competition

2020 Audi TT Coupe vs 2020 Lexus RC 300 Coupe

Lexus RC 300 looks amazing. The cabin offers admirable comfort and adequate passenger space both at the front and back. The ride quality is pleasant compared to the TT’s stiffer ride. The standard safety offered by Lexus remains ahead of Audi. What impresses us is the quality of materials used in the cabin. However, despite all these, the Audi TT remains ahead in practicality. Moreover, it’s a fun-to-drive car. If we were to choose, we’d put our money on the Audi.

2020 Audi TT Coupe vs 2020 Mercedes-Benz C 300 Coupe

Amongst the two, we recommend the C 300 Coupe as it comes with an extensive list of features and has a state-of-the-art cabin that bestows a plush experience. It’s appealing, spacious, and comfortable. The ride quality is also amazing. The presence of better standard safety features and impeccable build quality is what makes us admire the C 300 Coupe.

2020 Audi TT Coupe vs 2020 BMW 430i Coupe

The BMW 4-Series Coupe may be a little slower than the Audi, but it’s the best choice among all the coupes. The exterior looks distinct and makes it easily recognizable. It offers similar mileage to the TT but features a bigger fuel tank. The cargo trunk is bigger and can accommodate your belongings. It gets a capacious cabin that has a roomy aura to it and grants unmatched luxury and comfort. On the outside, its design is prepossessing and if you are looking for a coupe that garners abundant attention, then the BMW is a perfect fit for you. 

2020 Audi TT Final Verdict

The 2020 Audi TT Coupe is one of the best options you can buy. It looks handsome and is easily recognizable. Despite its stiffer ride quality, the smaller body and lighter weight mean great driving dynamics. Opting for the Tech packages loads the infotainment system with essential features and works well. The cabin inside is comfortable at the front but the rear space feels rather cramped and is best suited for kids, pets, and storage. But what impresses us is its fuel economy. All-in-all, the TT Coupe gets a green light from us and is a practical proposition.
