The 2012 Audi TT is reasonably well-equipped in base form, but enthusiasts wanting some level of luxury, too, will want to check some option boxes. And then, prices can rise toward the $50k mark rather rapidly.

But most shoppers probably won't mind paying a little more, as what you get is a vehicle that feels much more premium than the base Coupe and Roadster. The TTS models sport a Silk Nappa leather and Alcantara interior with aluminum trim, plus fog lights, 19-inch wheels, 10-way power front seats, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. Both versions of the TTS have a Sport button that tweaks the settings of the magnetic ride suspension.

Worth noting is that on the TT Roadster, the convertible top is manually operated unless you pay for power controls. We recommend them here for convenience, and recommend the Bose premium sound, as the unimpressive sound coming from the base sound system barely passes muster.

Sirius satellite radio, cruise control, power windows/locks/mirrors, leather upholstery, and an auxiliary jack are among the standard features on all TT models. Through option packages, rear parking sensors, LED interior lighting, xenon headlamps, heated sport seats, premium Bose speakers, and a trunk pass-through can be added.

Priced well above those or an entry price of less than $60k, the TT RS includes all that you get in the TTS, feature-wise, plus a lap timer, power sport seats covered in a choice of Silk Nappa leather or Alcantara, and a host of special trims and showy wheel possibilities. Exterior hues are limited to eight different shades of black, grey, silver, red, white, and blue, with three different wheel finishes.

Highlights include a Tech Package, which gets you Audi’s MMI Navigation, upgraded Bose sound, rear parking sensors, adaptive headlights, and ambient LED lighting. Separately, heated seats, carbon-fiber folding mirrors, ‘aluminum optic’ exterior trim, a sport exhaust, and gloss-black wheels are among the standalone options on the TT RS, and you can also opt to delete the larger rear wing and instead get the power-retractable spoiler that’s offered on the rest of the TT line.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
