2017 Audi TT review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2017 Audi TT?

The 2017 Audi TT is a four-seat coupe or two-seat, soft-top roadster that offers more versatility than its compact size might suggest. The TT is available in one trim level, 2.0T, but also comes in a more powerful version called the TTS, covered separately. All-wheel drive is standard on either body style.

What's New on the 2017 Audi TT?

Fully redesigned for 2016, the Audi TT now comes standard for 2017 with a backup camera and auto-dimming, power-folding side mirrors.

How Does the 2017 Audi TT Compare to Other Coupes?

The 2017 Audi TT carries a price of about $44,000 MSRP for the base level. Shoppers interested in the roadster might also look at the BMW Z4 or the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class, and those interested in the coupe also have the options of the BMW 2 Series, the Lexus RC 350 or the Audi A5. All five options have similar prices to the TT.

What Features in the 2017 Audi TT Are Most Important?

The TT is powered by a 220-horsepower, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine exclusively with a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Significant standard features include standard all-wheel drive, 18-inch alloy wheels, full LED headlights, dual tailpipes, configurable driving modes, full-LCD instrument panel, leather and Alcantara simulated-suede seats and Bluetooth streaming audio. As required of every new 2017 car, the TT has front airbags, antilock brakes and an electronic stability system.

Significant available features include a Bang & Olufsen premium stereo, in-car 4G LTE Wi-Fi hot spot (subscription required), a navigation system and a blind spot warning system.

Should I Buy the 2017 Audi TT?

The 2017 Audi TT handles well and comes with a lot of standard features you might have to pay extra for on other vehicles. There's a surprising amount of room in the cabin, despite the small backseat, and the interior materials provide additional comfort. The TT has a good amount of trunk space for a coupe, but luggage space in the convertible is limited. The Audi TT doesn't offer a manual transmission and the drivetrain lags in normal driving modes.

I like my TT.

I've owned my 2017 Audi TT since new. It's a coupe with a back seat for my two Italian Greyhounds. They sit on a large cushion. The TT has plenty of room for trips and groceries because the rear setbacks fold down, so the trunk goes all the way to the front setbacks. I truly love the dual clutch sport mode which is faster and more accurate than a manual. It's available instantly by touching the shift lever. The driver can shift manually, sort of. The car will downshift automatically if speed drops too low in a gear and upshift when engine revs are too high. On the other hand there are shift paddles on the steering column that rotate with the steering wheel so they can rarely be found in spirited driving. The Quattro drive gives peace of mind in snow and ice. In fact I cannot think of any negatives about the car except for the stupid paddle shifters.

2017 Audi TT Roadster

This is an early ownership review since I've only had the car about 10 days. All my other Audi's were (2) A4's and (1) A5. I bought this TT with only 20K miles and since its a CPO car I have a 2 year factory warranty. So, the car is beautiful and laid out like a typical Audi...this is a good thing. Even though it only has 220 HP it feels much more powerful. The interior and trunk is larger than I expected...when compared to a Miata. This car has the technology package with the virtual cockpit so all of the features takes time to sort out and use. Hopefully it'll be as reliable as my other Audi's. I'll likely keep it garaged and drive another family car through the Winter since it has Summer performance tires. One negative is that the car is short but feels as wide as a family sedan. It takes some time getting used to, especially if your parking it in a garage with other cars.

Fun to drive

This car is the perfect size for me. (I am a small person). Fun to drive. All wheel drive adds practicality for living in the mountains. My dog rides with me as well. (She's big). All in all I am enjoying it!
