2019 Audi TT now offers more of the driving experience that its exterior teases. When Audi conceived the TT in the mid 1990s, it knew it had a game changer on its hands. The little coupe came into a virtually deserted segment and it served as a statement of Audi’s commitment to design and precision engineering. An offspring of the VW Golf IV platform, the Audi TT was shaped by a number of high profile designers. In this edition, they’re ever closer to becoming true sports cars, but the TT and the higher power Audi TTS don’t quite fit that esoteric bill.

The base TT comes generously equipped with automatic full LED headlights, LED taillights and 19 inch alloy wheels wrapped in summer performance tires are available as standalone options. There are nods to the original TT’s Bauhaus inspired design, prominently rounded wheel arches and exhaust outlets that sit near the middle of the car. As with the last generation model, the Audi TT’s body is made from aluminum.

Nappa leather upholstery is available as part of the Audi Design Selection package or the S Sport Seat package. Standard equipment includes rear parking sensors, heated mirrors, Audi Drive Select adjustable drive settings, the knob-based MMI infotainment controller with touchpad capability, cruise control, automatic climate control, LED ambient interior lighting, a tilt and telescoping sport steering wheel with shift paddles, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, folding rear seatbacks, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, voice controls and a nine-speaker sound system with a CD/DVD player, an SD card reader, satellite radio, two USB ports and an auxiliary audio jack.
