interior...is beautifully built

Audi has long ago thrown the TT Coupe's original Art Deco inspiration to the wayside, but the current version of this sport coupe and convertible still look contemporary, and fit in well with the rest of the Audi lineup--at least from the outside.

From first look, there could be little mistaking the TT for anything but a performance car. Its more masculine yet muted look bring a conservative tone overall, yet looking at the side sculpting, rakish hood, and LED lights, it's easy to see a family resemblance to the R8 sports car--as well as maybe just a hint of Porsche 911 roofline.

Audi has for more than a decade been ahead of the curve--especially with respect to interior design--but the automaker hasn't so much worked that angle with its current second-generation TT. Its interior is looking somewhat dated next to all the recently-updated models from the A4 on up--though we like the no-nonsense detailing. With four big round vents perched atop a near clone of the more plasticky, button-riddled dash design seen in the A3, its instrument panel isn't trend-setting, but the simpler look has more masculine appeal and probably better fits the sports car look intended.

Conclusion

The 2012 Audi TT isn't as fresh inside as the rest of the Audi lineup, but the contemporary exterior still fits right in alongside the more expensive R8.

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.
