Reviewers from around the Web had compliments for the 2008 Audi TT’s comfort and quality—except when it came to the small backseats.
The Detroit News gushes that “inside the coupe, every appointment feels, looks and smells luxurious.” The Auto Channel adds, “There's plenty of room in there as well--a distinct improvement over earlier model years.” However, the Audi TT is still a small sports coupe, and its thick roof pillars cut down on the view outside. “Sightlines, or pure claustrophobia, may be the real issue for some,” Cars.com reports. “The roofline is low and the doors rise high. The rear view isn't bad, partly because the car is low enough that you can see other vehicles.”
The backseats met with near-universal dismissal. “In the coupe, the back seats are barely big enough to hold a child's winter coat, much less another person,” the Detroit News points out. “They're cute in that useless kind of way.” Cars.com says the backseats are “often mistaken for cupholders,” but notes that the seats fold forward to create “almost 25 cubic feet of pretty versatile cargo volume”—big enough for a couple of golf bags.
Lastly, the 2008 Audi TT’s body structure in roadster form took home honors. The new structure is wonderfully solid, the New York Times reports, and will impress anyone who’s witnessed “the tiresome shake and wiggle of a poorly done convertible.”
