Detailed Review

Volkswagen as a mammoth of cars stretching it out in its MQB platform and it extends to wide scope of vehicles under its umbrella. It is structured so attentively, that it can take a longitudinal and just as transversely mounted motor and still can be FWD, RWD or AWD. Such a dynamic stage, that it reaches out to a sportscar too. The Audi TT henceforth is that little infant sister to R8 freshly styled and nearly holding the extents of the last gen.

Audi TT isn't "abundantly" powerful however we'd state it’s a "decently" controlled with 2 L turbocharged inline-4 creating 220 horses and a 258 pound feet. The following in the TT go with 292 hp is, where the typical TT completes a 60 in 5.3 seconds, the last does it in 4.6 seconds. The forthcoming TT RS is a long due for one year from now which will have a turbocharged 5 pot engine.

This extravagant sportscar roadster has M4 as its nearest rival. Its normal adversary the Z4 is still a work in progress and will presumably hit the shores in 2019. Furthermore, Americana is muscling here with a smidgen all the more dominant Cadillac ATS.

2018 Audi TT Coupe Engine

The 2018 Audi TT isn't a pure driver's car, but all-wheel drive, fun-to-drive dynamics, and decent fuel economy make it a practical choice for sporty fun. -Car Connection

Engine and Transmission

With a 2L 4 pot motor, Audi TT at 220 torque nearly has a similar power figure as performance cars just below its price bracket. It is undoubtedly a little underpowered for the section level extravagance car portion. All what helps the TT, is the extremely fulfilling S-tronic double clutch programmed gearbox and its manuals are somewhat harder to get. The second thing that helps it the most is its light weight.

BMW 4 series has a far more sporty character inclination and dynamic vehicle than Audi. With BMWs being intended to drive very sportily, they make an amusing to-drive vehicles notwithstanding when they appear to be modestly specced on paper. Cadillac here is that tycoon with a great deal of paw-burrowing and skipping power. The 295 pounds foot delivering 2.5 L engine is an extensively preferable entertainer over both the Germans here.

Acceleration

Great acceleration is a direct result of the Audi TT's all- wheel drive Quattro framework which comes as standard in US. The weight cut over the last gen and broad utilization of aluminum bits has additionally diminished the exertion it takes to push the vehicle to 60.

BMW and Cadillac lag behind when TT takes charge taking just 5.2 seconds 0-60 mph it leaves Cadillac and BMW behind. Quarter mile is impressive too at just 13.9 seconds. Cadillac shows its weight when doing acceleration time.

Braking

Audi TT as of now has a decent numbers when it comes to braking. In any case, when we talk about its controllability by the righteousness of its brakes, TT disillusions. The brakes feel laggy and not really responsive for a sportscar. 70 to zero takes TT 151 feet which is the best in the competition. Be that as it may, absence of input and accuracy makes Audi feels exceptionally substantial in braking test. We aren't stating brakes are terrible, only the vibe is.

Audi TT is very great in pulling off the braking distance though we just talked about how we feel about the brake feel above. 60 to 0 takes 151 ft. Cadillac is impressive at 156 ft and 4 series the heaviest in the list takes 164 ft.

2018 Audi TT Coupe Fuel Economy

7.9/10

Audi TT has reasonable mileage of 26mpg in a combined condition on highway this does go up by 4mpg. And with a quattro system we feel it has a decent mileage.

BMW being the heaviest here is the best in the mileage whatever it may be city or highways. It trumps its German rival, the TT. Cadillac with a bigger engine consumes more fuel here.

2018 Audi TT Coupe Interior

8.1/10

The 2018 Audi TT has a roomy driver’s seat, but the coupe has a tight rear seat and the roadster doesn’t offer one at all. -Car Connection

TT's interior styling is spotless and basic, and its five star materials make an upscale situation. The interiors is tranquil, as well, even in the convertible model with the top down. Especially amazing is the new Virtual Cockpit framework that puts the sight and sound screen straightforwardly behind the directing wheel rather than on the dashboard. The screen is sharp and simple for the driver to see. The climate controls are contained inside the air vents, making them simple to alter. The front seats are pretty movable and agreeable, however the confined rearward sitting arrangements should just be utilized for capacity. Payload space is extraordinary for the car and the roadster.

The rear seat configurations of all these cars are a laughably sized for adults. With such a little legroom it can get almost impossible to fit in any of these. But still here the BMW is the one with the most spacious be it rear or the front seats.

Cargo volume

Audi TT is just to keep one or even two essential bags in the boot and then you head for the drive. Because Audi TT is about the drive and not it-can-take-all-that-in-the-boot car. A 12 cu.ft of cargo space is comparable to certain hatchbacks infact.

Cadillac with that sharp styling and boot to match, doesn’t have much to store with 10.4 cu.ft. The best one here is BMW 4 series coupe with a lot bigger boot at 15.7 cu.ft.

2018 Audi TT Coupe Exterior

8.4/10

The 2018 Audi TT focuses its cockpit on the driver, while its sheet metal wants to be like a scaled down R8. -Car Connection

The TT conveys its design signature from its elder sibling, getting a sizeable motivation from its mid-engined cousin. The structure of late, has been going more detailed over years and now with the new matrix headlamps.

The TT is short wheelbase that causes it to look zippy even before it moves. However, it gives the TT the all important agility. The surfaces are presently edgier than round, the shades take care of delightfully making it look flawless. The tailamps continue the matrix headlamp design.

BMW 4 series and Cadillac ATS are comparatively bigger cars than TT. BMW feels more flamboyant after the recent design update and ATS on the other hand is edged and creased well. Audi TT with its tout and tight sportscar proportion feels very purpose build.

2018 Audi TT Coupe Competition

BMW 4 series coupe

BMW comes pretty close to hatching the perfect blend of coupe and its 3-series sedan elements to form a car that is properly fun to drive. Dynamics was always one of the strong points for BMW and the way it drives is very engaging. With enough space on offer 4 series make a good buy. And if you want a coupe that almost comes close to being go-kart like. TT is the thing to head for.

Cadillac ATS

Cadillac when compare to 4 series and TT is a holistically classier luxury car that tries to be sporty. So if we tip the scale: TT is the most sport intended, ATS is mostly classic luxury and 4 series just balances between these two. Go for Cadillac if you like all that sharp edgy styling, torquey engine and the comfort it offers.

2018 Audi TT Coupe Final Verdict

Audi is agile and powerful just the right amount of power to have fun in. 20 horses is not what you expect out of hot brewing entry level sportscar from Audi but it is fun enough. The phenomenal character of TT is its controllability and the feeling of nothing can go wrong with it in a fast corner. It’s like the car has always got your back. All the right reasons to buy a TT.

Pros

Grippy Quattro all wheel drive

Cons

Non-ergonomic infotainment for passenger

Looks can get subjective

Ride quality stiff
