I know it's not very quick, but I actually think this turbocharged 2.0-liter TT works better than the more potent TTSs that I've driven recently. This slower car isn't trying to pretend that it's a Porsche Boxster-fighter. It's just trying to be a sexy, sporty, luxurious two-plus-two. Which it does quite well. The atypical blue paint is a nice touch, too.
The interior feels very nice and looks sharp, not surprising in an Audi. It does, however, call attention to how used our Four Seasons R8 is starting to feel, particularly in the MMI switchgear. This brand-new TT's controls feel wonderfully crisp. (I'm sure if the R8 weren't a press car, it'd be in better shape.)
My comments on the TTS coupe also translate to this non-S TT: this car would be a blast to take on a cross-country trip, thanks mostly to its sleek looks and its significant amount of luggage space.
