Those reviewing the 2009 Audi TT find comfort in most aspects of the car, as long as they do not have to ride in the backseat.
The new Audi TT 2009 is not for large families. According to Consumer Reports, the 2009 Audi TT's "coupe has two small rear seats while the convertible seats just two." Edmunds.com also notes the tiny rear seats in the coupe, "only suitable for kids, packages or perhaps anorexic D-listers." Cars.com reports that the Audi TT has "front bucket seats and a small rear seat" in the coupe model, and the Audi TT "roadster is a two-seater." When drivers get into and out of the front seat, the Audi TT 2009 has, per Kelley Blue Book's findings, "a racing-style flat-bottom steering wheel that provides a touch more leg clearance on entry and exit" and standard "Baseball Optic seat in black leather. Base models feature sport seats covered in a combination of leather and suede-like Alcantara."
Cars.com likes the "aluminum interior trim," and Kelley Blue Book hails the "contemporary design, premium materials," which make the Audi TT another addition to Audi's line of "standout interiors." The Washington Post notes that the "power convertible roof rises or falls in seconds. When it and the when the soft top and "the side windows are raised, it locks tightly in place, sealing out cold and moisture." The power top is now optional on the roadsters for 2009. Edmunds.com finds that the design of the 2009 Audi TT's convertible top "enables the car to retain clean lines with the top down" and "keep the car quiet and well-insulated."
The cargo area of the new Audi TT is passable in the coupe, according to Cars.com; it notes the "13.1-cubic-foot cargo space that grows to 24.7 cubic feet when the rear seats are lowered" and "can carry two golf bags." Edmunds.com also calls out the "coupe's hatchback utility."
Most reviewers have positive things to say about the TT’s smooth, quiet ride—at least relative to other sporty coupes—but one warning is laid out by a Motor Trend reviewer, who recommends that in cruising, drivers will want to switch the TTS’s magnetic suspension back to its normal mode, as in "S" (sport) mode, it “bobs and pitches with just a bit too much hyperactivity.”
The 2009 Audi TT has a quiet, comfortable interior—but you shouldn’t try to use the backseat.
